During the Corona virus, the British government imposed strict lockdown in the country. Due to this, a large number of people have also left jobs in Britain. Finance Minister Rishi Sunak in the British Government has said that this crisis has lasted the longest. The loss of one’s job is like a tragedy.
The government’s data has been released at a time when Debenhams plans to close all its UK department store outlets. About 12,000 people work in this. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently stated that the current lockdown cannot be lifted until around Easter.
According to experts, the unemployment rate is expected to increase further. It is estimated that the relief package brought by the British Government is coming to an end in April. As part of this relief package, the salaries of the employees were added directly to the accounts of the companies from the government. The lockdown was imposed in the UK in February last year. From February 2020 to December, the number of payroll employees has decreased from 8.28,000.
Even after vaccination, strict lockdown took place
In December last year, Britain started the vaccination campaign. Since then, it was hoped that the lockdown would not be imposed. With this, people had expected that now the economy can come back on track soon. But then a new form of Kovid-19 was found in Britain after which the British government imposed strict lockdown in the country. The British government had told that this new form of Kovid-19 spreads more quickly. Since then, strict rules have been implemented in the UK so far, which is continuously impacting the economy.
