The Coronavirus is disrupting daily life throughout Europe and the World - and particularly for those in the health and social care sectors. The Liberal Democrats have been highlighting the lack of planning by the Conservative government and have now put together a support package for those most affected.
The package, outlined by spokesperson Munira Wilson, has a number of elements as Munira explains in this video
Acting Leader Ed Davey and Health and Social Care Spokesperson Munira Wilson dig into our Frontline Support Package. Back our plan for frontline workers now 👇 www.libdems.org.uk/frontlinePosted by Liberal Democrats on Friday, May 1, 2020
We want to see urgent provision for PPE (personal protection equipment), practical help for frontline workers to make their day-to-day life a little easier, and an additional service payment for each day on the frontline to recognise the dangers that many of them face. Full details are given on the Liberal Democrats' main web site linked here.

These are measures introduced by many of our European partners and should be replicated in the UK.
