The UK will hold a minute’s silence today in tribute to frontline workers who have died in the fight against coronavirus. At least 90 NHS and social care workers have lost their lives after testing positive for Covid-19. The silence, organised by Unison, the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal of College of Nursing, will take place at 11am. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who returned to work this week after his own battle with coronavirus, will also observe the silence. He previously heaped praise on NHS staff who treated him in hospital, stating that he ‘owed them’ his life. A spokesperson for Downing Street said: ‘We will be supporting the minute’s silence. We will be asking everybody who works in the government to take part and we would hope that others will take part nationwide as well.’
