11:09 am
hospitals have been reporting they have been extremely busy, with numbers in a&e back up to the highest levels seen before the pandemic. there have been warnings that with increasing numbers of covid patients, some non—urgent operations will have to be postponed. now the academy of medical royal colleges says that the nhs is facing unprecedented pressure, with people who stayed away during the pandemic coming forward. it adds that while everyone wants to get back to normal life, a responsible approach when restrictions are lifted will be essential. the academy says because of the success of the vaccine rollout, rising cases are not translating into previous levels of hospital admissions and deaths, though numbers are rising steadily. although far fewer people are ending up in hospital and dying, at present, than had previously — because the vaccine's helping — actually, many people who get covid will go on to get long covid, and every person who ends up needing hospital care, needing care from the general practitioner, means that the nhs
11:10 am
is going back under the difficult pressures it has faced before which is going to slow us down from getting back on with the backlog of work that we're desperately trying to clear. the medical leaders go on to say that people should act with care, including wearing face masks in crowded indoor areas. the government has previously argued that a cautious approach had been taken with the roadmap in england, delaying the next step to allow the medical leaders go on to say that people should act with care, taken with the roadmap in england, delaying the next step to allow for millions more vaccinations, so those most at risk are fully protected. ministers in scotland, wales and northern ireland are due to announce their plans for further easing soon. hugh pym, bbc news. nhs staff in england could soon be exempt from quarantine if they are �*pinged' by the covid—19 app under plans being considered by downing street. ministers have already said that, from 16th august, people who are double—jabbed can avoid self—isolation, even if the app traces them as a covid contact. that date may now be brought forward for health service staff. earlier, i spoke tojonathan blake, our political correspondent,
11:11 am
and i asked him what the plan is. it seems that as more and more people are testing positive for covid—19 before the remaining restrictions are lifted in england in just over a week, of course the number of people being pinged to isolate is, in turn, going up. nhs trusts so they are struggling to cope with too many staff taking time off to isolate. i think the situation is becoming unsustainable, so we are told that under consideration, serious consideration in government, is the idea of allowing nhs staff to continue to work if they are pinged by the app or contacted by nhs test and trace if they have had both their vaccinations. that's the plan for all adults after august the 16th in england, which the health secretary announced earlier this week, but i think we are seeing so many people being told to isolate that it is just not possible for nhs organisations, hospitals and other health care providers to wait that long. so it could be that the move
11:12 am
is brought forward for nhs staff, probably in line withjuly the 19th but no final decision has been taken yet. there is concern that volunteers who took part in the clinical trails for the covid vaccine novavax could be unable to travel abroad as restrictions ease and more countries are added to the green list. while the jab was shown to be highly effective in protecting against the virus, it's not currently included in so—called vaccine passports. gill dummigan has this report. hi, love! hi, mum. hiya, how are you doing? jo wiggins' daughter and two small grandchildren live abroad. in two days' time, she should be meeting them in france for the first time in a year, but she's not. i'm upset. it's a long, long time since we've seen them. they're just little children and i love them to bits, like any grandmother does. and i'm angry, really, because i volunteered for something in good faith and now
11:13 am
i am seriously disadvantaged. that something was the clinical trial for novavax. 15,000 people in the uk did the same last autumn, keen to help the global race for a vaccine against covid at a time when there were very few. the trials found novavax to be highly effective but the company hasn't yet finished their licensing process in the uk and the eu, and that means people who are double jabbed with novavax don't get the same recognition as people who've had other vaccines through the normal nhs programme. france currently only accepts vaccines already licensed for use there. the nhs app is being internationally accepted as proof in many countries, but it's not on there either. jo is not impressed and neither�*s her daughter. we've all been really proud of her that she took part in this, that she did it without any questions, she just wanted to help. and now it feels like she's being punished and it's just really unfair. in a statement to us, the government said they'll take any action available to make sure trial
11:14 am
volunteers don't lose out. everyone can currently get a confirmation letter and they're urgently working to upgrade the nhs app to allow those trial vaccines to be registered. novavax says they're working with all agencies to see the app updated by the end of the month. i don't regret taking part. it was the right thing to do at the time. i regret the way that we've been treated since. take care, i'll let you get back to work. speak to you soon. gill dummigan, bbc news. lots of love, sweetheart, lots of love. bye, mum. bye. the headlines on bbc news: it's all set for tomorrow night at wembley — the clash between england and italy to crown the winners of euro 2020. fully—vaccinated nhs staff could be let off having to self—isolate after contact with someone with covid to try to tackle staff shortages. haiti descends into chaos after their president was assassinated. it urges the united nations and the united states to send in troops.
11:15 am
former ipswich town and england international striker paul mariner has died at the age of 68. he scored 135 goals for ipswich and was part of bobby robson's fa cup—winning side of 1977—78. he also had stints at plymouth, arsenal, portsmouth and scored 13 goals for england. he later went on to play in australia and the united states and had managed plymouth argyle and toronto fc. three days after the assassination of its president, haiti's political crisis is deepening. there are reports the country's lawmakers have nominated the head of the senate, joseph lambert, as interim president. a rival politicalfaction, though, which includes the acting interim prime minister, claudejoseph, says the move is unconstitutional. haitian officals have taken the extraordinary step of requesting military help from the united states and the united nations.
11:16 am
courtney bembridge reports. crowds gathered outside the us embassy in port—au—prince, with suitcases packed, looking for a way out. translation: i can't close my eyes, i can't sleep at night. i had to come here to the embassy because i'm scared. there are so many gunshots and you don't even know where they're coming from. i've abandoned my home, i can't go back, i don't know about my family. the country of 11 million people is reeling from the assassination of its president, shot dead inside his home on wednesday. look at what happened to the head of the state. i can stay here. look at what is happening to the country. look at what is happening to the country. these are two of the men haitian authorities say carried out the plot. they were attacked by the public as they were loaded into a police car. 17 men have been arrested so far,
11:17 am
most of them colombian, but investigators are still looking for who ordered the killing. haiti was already plagued by hunger and gang violence but the assassination has pitched the country deeper into turmoil. it's requested the united nations and the united states send troops to help secure the country and protect key infrastructure. the us has declined the request and the un may also be reluctant to get involved. i think the un is thoroughly sick of haiti, they had a 13—year peacekeeping force there that got in a lot of trouble in a lot of ways. the last thing being the cholera epidemic which the peacekeeping forces brought into haiti. so i think they don't really want to get entangled again. i think most outside forces don't want to get militarily entangled again in haiti if they can avoid it. adding to the uncertainty is the political situation — there is no working parliament, two men are claiming to be the prime minister,
11:18 am
and a third of the senate has just nominated another man to lead as interim president. courtney bembridge, bbc news. former boxer chris eubank says he is devastated at the death of his son sebastian, who has died just days before his 30th birthday. sebastian had followed his father's footsteps and become a professional boxer himself. he died yesterday morning in dubai, where he lived. the preparations are under way for a red and white weekend across england, as fans get ready for the final tomorrow night. demand for themed food, drinks and memorabilia has rocketed, giving a decent boost for businesses. 0ur correspondent katie prescott has been at romford market for us. this has been a very busy morning here. it has been such a tough time for businesses. all the stores here that one counted at the central had
11:19 am
to close during the lockdown so there is the hope now with the euros, the optimism that generates, people will be out and about spending money, and particularly likes —— at stalls likejeff�*s. here are some other businesses i have been speaking to in the meantime. cheering and applause. there's nothing quite like an england game for pulling in the punters. football for many businesses has been a lifesaver. a shot in the arm, effectively, for us. we're employing more staff than ever before. we can't get enough bodies through the door when the games are on, and in terms ofjust the money coming through the door, it's really hard, the trade's good, it's — midweek�*s been really good. it kind of makes those tuesday feel like a saturday in terms of take for us, so yeah, it's been a real big roost having the euros. sunday is a big day for italian restaurants too, like the family—run lamezia in north london, showing a match for the first time. we're fully booked on sunday. we have lots of italian fans but there are english fans attending as well,
11:20 am
so it will be nice to just get together and just enjoy the game and have a lovely evening, really. football is always been good for business. especially in the area where we have the arsenal stadium five minute walk across, just round the corner. well, if you're not going out to watch, chances are you're shopping for a big night in, and the shelves are stacked high as supermarkets gear up for ringing tills. we've seen sharp increases in sales before matches of things like frozen stone baked pizzas, our barbecue range, of course booze and alcohol, sides, a whole range of different stuff as people stock up and celebrate these big tournaments. when it comes to a lasting impact of this on business, it's the feelgood factor that's so important. the theory goes that if we feel happy and confident then we're more likely to keep spending, and that could endure well beyond sunday's game. to keep his staff happy, like many businesses, the owner of this media agency has given them all monday off to take what are being called free lie—ins.
11:21 am
we've had a really tough year and a half, like everyone else has, it's been very stressful, everybody has worked so hard. we just felt that come monday morning, let everybody either celebrate or commiserate and have a day off. one day, i think, is something we can afford to give everyone. our clients have been really supportive of it and we'll be back raring to go on tuesday. as england should be going into its last working week under covid restrictions, getting to sunday's final is just the start of what may be a brighter summerfor business. katie prescott, bbc news. there are no free lie ins at romford market this morning. jeff, you bought all of this merchandise ahead of the euro is not known how engel could do. it must be quite lucrative

he's a millionaire sportsman with an mbe for promoting racial equality in sport. and england's second top scorer at euro 2020. but for three key years of his life, he lived with sandra and peter reeves in rainhill, near st helens. the couple took in young players like raheem sterling when they moved from other parts of the country to play for liverpool. raheem was really good. he was such a grounded young man, and he had a path in his head. he knew where he wanted to go, so to be signed for liverpool was really good for him, because that's where he was going and he knew, and he was lovely. players like raheem would attend the local school, go training with liverpool in the afternoon and started and ended their day with foster parents like the reeveses. i used to do sausage sandwiches for them and a cup of tea and i would take it up and say, come on, you've only got so long

now it's time for a look at the weather with louise lear. hello, there. morning rain across southern england will slowly start to ease as we go into the afternoon, clearing from the kent coast. then, behind, it's a case of sunny spells and scattered showers. some of those showers could be slow—moving, though, with light winds. maybe the odd rumble of thunder once again. if you do see the best of the sunshine you will see temperatures peaking at 22 degrees, 72 fahrenheit. as we move out of saturday, some of those showers will be quite intense for a time, but they will fade away with some clearing skies here. cloud and rain gathers out to the south—west. another weather front waiting in the wings to arrive slowly on sunday, but it stays relatively mild with temperatures widely into double figures. sunday morning will start off with cloud pushing into southern fringes of northern ireland, wales and south—west england. decent sunny spells once again further north and east will trigger off some sharp, thundery downpours. some of those quite intense.
11:31 am
top temperatures again 23 degrees. take care.
