We are doing everything we can to secure jobs - UK PM

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday that the British government is doing everything it can to support jobs amid the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Johnson praised the Winter economy plan that the country's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak has previously unveiled. He asserted that Sunak had been realistic when it comes to economic prospects, and stressed that the government will continue to seek "creative and imaginative proposals."

The plan, intended to counteract the negative impact of the COVID-19 outbreak, will allow businesses to keep workers in a job with shorter working hours, while the government will pay two thirds of their wages. The measures are scheduled to take effect come November and will be in place for at least six months.
