Can the government still protect our jobs?

On Thursday, the government came at the coronavirus crisis from two angles. 

First, the chancellor announced his winter economy plan outlining measures to replace the furlough scheme. Then things got technical with the launch of the NHS Test and Trace app in England and Wales.
