Here is a round-up of all the top Covid stories from the UK and around the world so far today:
A decline in public services in the UK could be hidden behind a “Covid crisis smokescreen”, unions have warned.
It comes amid calls from union chiefs for rail and bus services to be renationalised to avert “disastrous” cuts to services and jobs and increases in fares.
