Wednesday, 24th June Daily Roundup
Here’s a quick summary of what has happened around the world over the last 24 hours, brought to you exclusively by British Herald.
Customers in England’s pubs will have to provide their name before ordering a pint, and there will be no live acts or standing at the bar, the government announced ahead of the sector’s re-opening next month. Pubs, restaurants and hairdressers have to maintain a record of customers for 21 days to assist the state health service’s test and trace operation.
Up to 20,000 jobs are at risk at the country’s airports, an industry group warned, urging the government to do more to help an aviation industry that is now struggling to restart due to quarantine rules. The Airport Operators Association said future passenger numbers at airports were expected to be significantly lower, and analysis of its members suggested up to 20,000 jobs were at risk.
A baby boy who was born three months premature during the height of the coronavirus outbreak was finally able to go home. Theo, the son of Kirsty Anderson and Leon Stubbs, was discharged from Burnley General Hospital’s maternity wing after he attained 6lb and 4oz. During his days in hospital, a photo of little Theo with outstretched arms being handed over to his mother by a nurse wearing gloves and mask had gone viral.
Twitter Inc has permanently suspended the account of a rightwing online personality over violation of its copyright policy, a week after he posted a doctored video of toddlers that was tweeted by President Donald Trump. The move was the second action Twitter took related to Trump’s tweets within 24 hours.
Ukraine is opening more of its hospitals to accommodate coronavirus cases as the institutions initially chosen to accept patients no longer have enough beds to cope with a surge in infections, the health minister said.
Israeli and Palestinian authorities have brought back some coronavirus restrictions after the number of new cases jumped in what officials fear could herald a “second wave” of infections.
