Coronavirus: Affected workers will receive sick pay from day one

Workers told to self-isolate due to coronavirus will receive sick pay from day one, the Prime Minister has announced, as England’s Chief Medical Officer warned that a UK epidemic is now “likely”. Boris Johnson said people who self-isolate are “helping to protect all of us by slowing the spread of the virus” and did not deserve to be penalised financially.
