BBC News: Staff:
The Daily Mail asks if the prime minister will “see sense” on the “pingdemic” as pressure from business leaders and MPs mounts. The paper adds that about 1.7 million people are self-isolating after being contacted – or “pinged” – by NHS Test and Trace. Key NHS workers will be exempted from the quarantine rule due to staff shortages, the paper adds, in a bid to help hospitals avoid cancelling operations.
Several food retailers have warned of shortages and price increases as workers are told to self-isolate, placing pressure on the supply chain, the Financial Times reports. Supermarket group Iceland said stores have had to close because of the “sharp” spike in staff absences. Marks and Spencer announced it would have to slash opening hours if staffing levels dropped and restaurants bosses said menus were being scaled back because of shortages, the paper adds.
Daily cases could reach 200,000 by mid-August, a leading scientific adviser has warned, the Times reports. The paper carries comments from Prof Neil Ferguson, a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, who also warned that 500,000 more people could develop long Covid. The Times says that YouGov research has revealed that the government is out of step with the public on the decision to reopen, with just 31% in favour compared to 55% against. The main image dominating the Times’ front page, and that of several other papers, is of Sir Lewis Hamilton celebrating after winning the British Grand Prix.
The Daily Mirror leads with Mr Johnson’s plea to the nation to be cautious as social distancing restrictions are lifted in England. “Go forward with all the right prudence and respect for other people,” Mr Johnson said. The PM’s comments come as calls grow for the government to backtrack on lifting the mask mandate in public spaces.
The Daily Star describes the events involving the prime minister on Sunday as “flip flopping”, with dozens of pairs of the summer footwear scattered across the paper’s front page and an alliteration-heavy headline. “Flip flopping fop’s a flipping flop,” the paper says, as it reports on criticism of the PM’s initial decision to take part in a pilot scheme enabling him to escape isolation – or as the Star terms his “quarantine dodge bid”.
The i sets out how the government’s U-turn unfolded. At 08:00 BST, Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak announced they were exempt from self-isolating because they were taking part in the pilot scheme involving daily testing. Less than three hours later, at 10:38 BST, Downing Street announced the U-turn following a “furious backlash”.
“Chequers mate” is the headline dominating Metro as the paper says the PM was “shamed” into U-turning after a public outcry over the “VIP lane”. The prime minister will now spend 19 July in quarantine at Chequers, the paper reports.
The Daily Express also leads with the swift government reversal after the public backlash “forced” him to change his quarantine plans.
Finally, the Guardian is the only national paper not to lead with the developments ahead of Covid restrictions lifting in England on Monday. Instead, the paper carries details of an investigation into the alleged abuse of a cyber-surveillance weapon being used to target activists, politicians and journalists. The paper says that the findings suggest widespread abuse of hacking spyware, Pegasus.
“Backlash forces Boris U-turn” is the main headline in the Daily Express, which says the prime minister will spend what it calls “Freedom Day” self-isolating.
Metro says Boris Johnson has been shamed by the public outcry over his and the chancellor’s attempt to avoid quarantine. Referring to the prime minister’s country retreat, its front page declares: “Chequers Mate.”
The Daily Star ridicules Mr Johnson with the headline: “Flip Flopping Fop’s a Flipping Flop.”
The Daily Telegraph calls it a “Freedom Day farce” and says Mr Johnson is under pressure to end self-isolation for people who have had both jabs. One unidentified cabinet minister tells the paper that the system is “mad”, adding: “This ‘ping-mageddon’ is getting ridiculous.”
PA Media: Rishi Sunak and Boris Johnson will both be self-isolating on the day restrictions are being eased
The Daily Mail asks – with some 1.7 million people quarantining: “Now will Boris see sense on pingdemic?”
And the Financial Times highlights warnings of shortages by food retailers and producers because of the number of workers isolating.
Meanwhile, the Sun’s headline urges the prime minister to “do the right ping” and fix the app crisis.
The Daily Mirror leads with what it calls the desperate late plea by the prime minister to the nation to be careful, while “ploughing on” with his scrapping of restrictions. “Now he begs: please be cautious” is the headline.
Elsewhere, a YouGov poll for the Times suggests 55% of voters think Mr Johnson’s decision to reopen is wrong, with 31% supporting it. The paper says senior government figures are privately nervous about the next few weeks because infections are so far at the higher end of projections.
On Sunday, the Daily Telegraph reported that the government had ruled out mass Covid vaccinations for under-18s.
It is still expecting the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation to announce today that only vulnerable 12 to 15-year-olds should be offered a vaccine.
But it now understands that the JCVI will “leave the door open” for more children to be jabbed once trials conclude later this year.
The Guardian devotes its first nine pages to the data leak suggesting Israeli hacking software has been used by autocratic governments to target activists, journalists and lawyers. One Hungarian investigative journalist found that his phone had been infected on 11 occasions within days of him asking officials for a comment on his stories.The Hungarian government says it is not aware of any such data collection.
