The government’s flagship test-and-trace system will fail unless ministers agree to pay the wages of those who are forced to isolate for two weeks, unions and regional mayors have warned.

Millions of low-paid workers either do not qualify for the statutory sick pay of £95.85 a week or cannot afford to live on the allowance, leaving them unable to pay the bills if they have to quarantine due to coronavirus.
