U.K. Environment Secretary George Eustice and Stephen Powis, national medical director for NHS England provided an update on the COVID-19 battle in the U.K. on April 26.
Eustice said that the country now had a total of 152,840 COVID-19 cases and that 20,732 people had died in total. He said there were more than 669,000 tests that had been carried out. Eustice said in terms of reducing social distancing measures, the government must be confident they've met the five benchmarks laid out last week by First Secretary Dominic Raab.
Eustice also said that food supply businesses, like grocery stores, had reported a lower absence rate compared to three weeks ago when it hit 20 per cent, saying some have seen their rate drop as low as six per cent as of the end of last week allowing for more people to be available to provide service. He said supermarkets have also increased and prioritized delivery slots for vulnerable people. He added the government is working to ensure those who don't belong to that group but are in need of help, such as people with disabilities or people unable to draw on family for assistance, can get a volunteer shopper to help.
