The UK pays € 14 per day to “low-income” workers who are forced to isolate themselves after positive tests

August 27, 2020

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced on Thursday that the government plans to pay £ 13 to those “low-income” workers who need to be quarantined after a positive coronavirus test.

These payments would be made under a trial period beginning September 1 in Blackburn with Darwen, Pendle and Oldham and other areas of North West England currently under additional restraint measures due to the pandemic.

Boris Johnson’s government has come under heavy pressure to fund those who are forced to isolate themselves after positive tests or who have been in contact with someone who has been infected.

Without help, there is a risk that the infected or potentially infected will continue to work, which could help to increase the wave of viral infections and ultimately bring the economy back to a halt.
