COVID-19 update - 19 March 2020

Please see the Public Health England update below for 26 March:

 

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has confirmed that, as of 9am on 26 March 2020, a total of 104,866 people have been tested, of which 93,208 were confirmed negative and 11,658 were confirmed positive. As of 5pm on 25 March 2020, 578 patients in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) have died.

 

DHSC will publish updated data on https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public 

on a daily basis each afternoon until further notice. Please be aware that tests are now being prioritised for those who require hospital care for pneumonia or acute respiratory illness – while continuing to investigate outbreaks, ie where several cases are connected, especially in a particular setting such as a care home. This change is being reflected in the surveillance data we report which will monitor, support and inform the public health actions we are taking while no longer providing a running commentary of individual cases, or individual deaths.

 

The Chancellor has outlined measures to support the self-employed. They will be paid 80% of profits, up to £2,500 a month if affected by the coronavirus outbreak. HM Treasury guidance on https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/support-for-those-affected-by-covid-19

has also been updated.

 

The Prime Minister has announced a further £210 million funding to find a coronavirus vaccine. This is the largest single contribution by any country to the key international fund to find a coronavirus vaccine. A news story is on the Downing Street

Updated Message from The Carpenters Arms

I have had a rethink and decided to make some changes to the takeaway menu. This is to make it easier for all of you and myself.

 

The new menu is as follows...

 

MONDAY: Burger Night.
Our homemade burger served in a brioche bun with chips (available with or without cheese & onion marmalade) £8.99

 

WEDNESDAY: Chilli, Stew & Curry Night

Options for these will be posted week by week £6.99

 

FRIDAY: Fish & Chips Night

8oz Home Battered Cod & Chips- served with chips & mushy peas £6.99

 

SUNDAY’S: Roast of the Day (Beef, Pork or Lamb) served with Roast Potatoes, Parsnips, Yorkshire Pudding, vegetables and Gravy £8.99

 

I will also try to meet any special requests you may have. And takeaway drinks are also available.

 

Pre-ordering for these menus would be preferred if possible, as I want to be able to keep everything as fresh as possible for you!

Our supplies shop remains open to provide you with a range of essentials that may need. And I will try my hardest to source anything you require!

 

Thank you all again for your support through this difficult time for everyone.

Statement from Helen Whately MP

“The Coronavirus outbreak is the biggest public health emergency in a generation.

 

“The Government has been clear that our number one priority is to protect life, and that our decisions will be based on the best available science. The Coronavirus demands dramatic action and we are working tirelessly, in partnership with local councils, businesses, charities and other organisations, to ensure that people have the support they need.

 

“The situation is however moving extremely quickly. New and updated guidance will continue to be issued in the coming days and weeks. I have a dedicated page on my website where you can find the latest news/advice https://www.helenwhately.org.uk/coronavirus-advice.

 

“Please be assured that I will be continuing to work hard both locally and in Parliament to do everything I possibly can to protect and support people, particularly those who are most vulnerable and at risk. I would also strongly urge everyone to follow the advice issued by Government as we all have a vital part to play in battling the Coronavirus.

 

“Our response to the virus requires a national effort. We need to come together and look out for each other - particularly the most vulnerable in society – to get through this challenging time.”
