UK to pay 2 million self-employed workers through coronavirus: Times

LONDON (Reuters) - The British government will on Thursday announce plans to help around 2 million of the country’s 5 million self-employed workers through the coronavirus outbreak by paying money directly into their bank accounts, the Times newspaper reported.

The monthly payouts are expected to be capped and means-tested to benefit those on lower incomes, the report said.
