Coronavirus: UK government unveils aid for self-employed – BBC News

Self-employed workers will be able to apply for a grant of up to £2,500 a month to help them cope with the financial impact of coronavirus, the chancellor has announced.

The money will be paid in a single lump sum, but will not begin to arrive until the start of June at the earliest.

Rishi Sunak told the self-employed: “You have not been forgotten.”

Plans for 80% wage subsidies for staff kept on by employers were announced last week.

The chancellor spoke after the total number of people in the UK to die with Covid-19, the disease caused by coronavirus, reached 475.

  1. I am not into Hiphop or “Rap” per say, however, this Joyner Lucas fellow, kept my interest, as I watched his “Feeling Like Will” video. Probably ’cause I’m a fan of Will Smith, as an artist. The majority of the movies he’s made, I enjoyed. The “Fresh Prince Of Bel-air” was one of the best sit-com’s ever made. Even my Pop enjoyed it!
