Tuesday’s front pages look back at Covid deaths in hospitals and ahead to further lockdown easing.
The Daily Mirror reports that the Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford has urged the Tories to – in its words – “finally do the right thing” following his child hunger petition. MPs debated his petition – which attracted more than 1,113,000 signatures – in Parliament on Monday. It calls on the government to support vulnerable children by implementing three recommendations from the National Food Strategy to expand access to Free School Meals, provide meals and activities during holidays to stop holiday hunger, and to increase the value of and expand the Healthy Start scheme. The Mirror features the plea: “Don’t abandon hungry kids.”
