“Wish EU’d come here”, says the Metro, while the Mirror has “Wish EU were here” – both referring to the EU reopening to vaccinated holidaymakers or those from countries with low Covid figures.

“Reopening of holiday hotspots weeks away” – but by “weeks away” does the Times mean a long time or a short time?

The incredulous Mail clearly thinks the former: “Why wait seven more weeks?” as it jubilates in “Just ONE Covid death in latest daily figures”, though the bereaved might feel differently. (The Times also has “New scan finds heart disease in 20 minutes” and we can safely assume it means that’s a short time.)

The Financial Times zooms in on another country: “Germany to lift restrictions for people vaccinated against Covid” as Angela Merkel’s government confirms it will let people off from curfews and social restrictions if they have been inoculated against coronavirus or already had it.

Working women are facing a significant risk in the UK labour market, with far greater numbers being made redundant as a result of the pandemic than during the 2007 financial crisis, according to analysis seen by the Guardian.

Women are experiencing much higher levels of redundancies during the Covid pandemic than in previous recessions, according to the Trades Union Congress. Female redundancies in the UK hit 178,000 between September and November 2020, according to its analysis – 76% higher than the peak reached during the height of the financial crisis when female redundancy levels hit 100,000.

In the same 2020 period, 217,000 men were made redundant – 3% more than the peak of male redundancies during the financial crisis.

“Women are more likely to be on furlough than men and to work in sectors hit hardest by Covid, like retail and hospitality. And they bore the brunt of childcare while schools and nurseries were closed,” said Frances O’Grady, the general secretary of the TUC. “Without ongoing support from ministers, many more women face losing their jobs.”
