Here are five things you need to know about the coronavirus pandemic this Tuesday evening. We'll have another update for you tomorrow morning.
1. Scotland to ease restrictions
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced that Scotland will move to level zero of Covid restrictions on 19 July, but the mandatory use of face coverings is to remain in place for "some time". She says the planned easing had to be modified due to the spread of the Delta variant.
2. School absences
Almost 1.5m pupils were absent from classes in England's primary and secondary schools last week, a snapshot of one day's official data shows. The weekly Department for Education figures show about 840,000 were off for Covid-related reasons and a further 630,000 were absent for other reasons.
3. Nightclub policy confusion
The nightclub industry has been reacting to the UK government's guidance that venues in England should ask for the NHS Covid pass or a negative test result when they reopen on 19 July. Michael Kill, who runs the Night Time Industries Association says the guidance is "disingenuous and unclear" and says his members have asked him whether the policy is really voluntary.
4. Foreign aid cut
The UK government has fended off an attempt by MPs to force it to reverse its cut to spending on overseas aid, with Boris Johnson saying it is needed during the "economic hurricane" caused by the coronavirus pandemic. MPs voted to keep the budget for international development at 0.5% of national income.
5. Care home residents' first trip
It's been a hard 15 months for residents who have been unable to leave their care home since the start of the pandemic. The Knightwood home in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, has so far avoided any cases of Covid-19 but says residents have found the lack of contact with family and friends tough.
