Why is this important?
The Government is advising people to "self-isolate" if they think they might be ill or have been in close contact with someone who might be ill. But for low-paid workers - whose sick-pay isn’t enough to live off, or whose bosses won’t let them take time off - this could lead to difficult decisions.
People who could be sick might be faced with the decision to go to work and risk spreading the virus - or stay home and scramble to make rent or feed their kids.
