UK round-up: Quarantine row continues and second wave warning

As we near the end of our coverage, here is a quick summary of what's been happening around the UK today.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned there are signs of a "second wave" of coronavirus as he defended the government's decision to enforce a 14-day quarantine on arrivals from Spain. Spain's prime minister had called the rules "unjust"
But, the government is considering plans to allow arrivals from at-risk countries to take tests, several days apart, in order to cut down that quarantine time, according to travel industry sources
In Oldham, a large town in northern England, tighter measures have been introduced in a bid to prevent a local lockdown after a spike in cases in the last week. The council said there had been a "worrying increase" with 119 new cases in the week to 24 July
The boss of department store Selfridges has said it was taking the "toughest decision we have ever had to take" as the company prepares to cut 450 jobs. In a letter to staff, Anne Pitcher said coronavirus had led to the "toughest year" in recent history
Closing the government furlough scheme is a "mistake" which could lead to 10% unemployment, an economic research group has said. The National Institute of Economic and Social Research said the scheme had been an "undeniable success" but accepted its closure was driven by a desire to limit spending

A round-up of today's global headlines
Here are some of the biggest global developments of the day:
The pandemic cost $320bn (£248bn) to the global tourism industry in lost revenue between January and May, the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) said. It added that the loss was three times greater than that of the global financial crisis of 2009
Global airlines cut their recovery forecast, saying it will take until 2024 - a year longer than initially predicted - for passenger traffic to return to pre-pandemic levels
More than 16m cases have been recorded so far with about 650,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University in the US
End to two-week isolation for routine surgery patients in England
Most patients having planned surgery in England will no longer be told they need to isolate for two weeks before going into hospital.
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence has updated its guidelines following a decline in coronavirus cases.
Anyone having a non-emergency operation will need to have a Covid test three days before the procedure and isolate until they are admitted.
The surgery will only go ahead if the test is negative.
Most routine operations ground to a halt during the pandemic and it is hoped the changes will help clear the waiting list and also lead to more patients coming forward for treatment.
Dr Layla McCay, director at the NHS Confederation, said: “We have heard anecdotally from NHS leaders that some of their patients had been put off from coming in for planned treatments because of the blanket rule that required everyone to self-isolate at home for 14 days prior to their elective care, including those whose personal circumstances such as their employment would not easily allow it.”
In Scotland the 14-day quarantine guidelines will remain and the rest of the UK is considering the advice.
Italy PM moves to extend state of emergency
Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has asked the country's parliament to approve extending a state of emergency until October.
The current measure is due to expire at the end of the month.
An extension would ensure existing decrees issued to fight the virus would continue in force. It gives greater powers to both state and central government and bolsters hospital resources.
"The virus continues to evolve and has not run its course," Mr Conte said earlier today. "It would be incongruous to abruptly suspend such an effective measure."
The state of emergency enables central and regional governments to shut down areas in the event of further outbreaks. Some opposition groups say it would give Mr Conte too many powers.
Italy's lockdown rules have now been largely regionalised but face masks are mandatory on public transport and in shops, and social distancing of one metre is required in public spaces.
Covid-19 survivors could be at sepsis risk, warns charity
People who have been hospitalised with coronavirus are being warned that they could be at risk of sepsis.
One in five people who required hospital treatment for Covid-19 are at risk from sepsis within a year of being discharged, according to the UK Sepsis Trust (UKST).
Sepsis is a reaction to infection which happens when the body's immune system overreacts, which can lead to organ failure.
Dr Ron Daniels, founder of UKST, said: "We urgently need all health professionals, as well as the general public, to be aware of the signs of sepsis and subsequently avoid adding to the magnitude of this issue."
He said there were six signs that spell out the word sepsis - S for slurred speech or confusion, E for extreme pain in muscles or joints, P for passing no urine in a day, S for severe breathlessness, I for "it feels like I'm going to die" and S for skin that is mottled or discoloured.
Photographer captures life in lockdown with antique camera
Like most of us, photographer Jo de Banzie spent the spring of 2020 in lockdown, living at home with her family.
That time was overshadowed by the loss of her brother-in-law, who contracted the virus while working as an NHS paramedic.
Study finds hundreds of thousands gained weight in lockdown

If you have been feeling like you might have put on a little weight during lockdown then you are not alone after scientists found hundreds of thousands of people have piled on the pounds.
Almost 450,000 people who have contributed to the Covid Symptom Study app revealed that their weight had increased during lockdown.
According to the findings from the app, almost a third of those taking part said they had gained weight since March, with 35% saying they had increased snacking, 34% said they had decreased physical activity and 27% said they were drinking more alcohol.
Lead researcher Professor Tim Spector said the UK had a problem with obesity before the pandemic but "lockdown has made it worse". The average increase in body weight was found to be 0.78kg (1.6lbs).
A report published by Public Health England on Friday found being overweight or obese dramatically increased a person's risk of hospitalisation or death from coronavirus.
Colombian mayor hailed for virus strategy has Covid
The mayor of the Colombian city of Medellín, Daniel Quintero, says he has tested positive for coronavirus.
Mr Quintero has been praised for his early and data-driven approach to containing the virus in Colombia's second-largest city. He began holding preparedness meetings as early as January, when many politicians did not yet take the threat from the virus seriously.
His strategy seemed to pay off in the early stages of the pandemic. On 21 April, only two people had died with Covid in Medellín, while 29 had died in Cali, which has fewer inhabitants.
But in recent weeks the number of cases in Medellín and surrounding Antioquia province has shot up and now the mayor himself has Covid.
He told Colombian radio that his love of coffee may be to blame. "I have a lot of coffee and in order to drink it you have to take your mask off, so that may have been when I got it," he said.
He has urged fellow coffee lovers to suppress their urge for a cup or at least carry their own thermos flask to minimise the risk of contracting the virus from cups.

US pandemic recovery plan earmarks $53m for vaccine cybersecurity

A $1tn (£77bn) pandemic recovery plan proposed by US Senate Republicans has included $53m of funding to protect the development of a coronavirus vaccine from hackers.
According to a summary of the bill, funding will be given to America's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (Cisa), and will be used to improve network security in the wake of "increased attacks" on government agencies which are helping to develop a vaccine.
The $53m is a dramatic increase from the $9.1m given to Cisa under the Cares Act - showing the government's concern about the dangers of cyber attacks against coronavirus research centres.
The issue has been a source of immense diplomatic tensions during recent months. Last week America ordered China to close its consulate in Texas. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the decision was taken because China was "stealing" intellectual property.
The smartphone app will mean shoppers can wait in line in their cars, or another remote location, before heading into the store when it is their turn.
The trial began at five UK stores on Monday and will run until mid-August.
Experts say retailers need to find new ways to alleviate queuing as the UK heads into autumn and winter.
Sainsbury's customers will be able to download the app onto their smartphones, from where they can monitor their position.
UK records another 119 deaths
A further 119 people have died in the UK after contracting coronavirus, taking the total number of deaths to 45,878.
A word of warning - these figures use data from Public Health England, which is currently reviewing its methodology after it was found to be including people who tested positive months before they died.
Another 581 people have tested positive for the virus, the Department of Health and Social Care says, bringing the total number of UK cases to 300,692.
