Heathrow forecasts 90% drop in April

Heathrow Airport, traditionally the busiest in Europe, forecast that passenger numbers would plunge by over 90% in April, as coronavirus restrictions stop most people from travelling.

The remaining 10%, or around 680,000 people, still using Heathrow this month will be either Britons returning home after being stuck abroad or foreign citizens repatriating, as well as medical experts travelling to help with the crisis.

Heathrow also said on Tuesday its passenger numbers were down 52% in March compared with the same month last year, as the 6.5 million who went on holiday or traveled for work last March shrunk to 3.1 million this year.

UK shares lag

UK stock markets edged lower on Monday as shares in British American Tobacco slumped on reports of a U.S. criminal probe, while signs that Britain will remain under lockdown for a longer period dented the mood.

The blue-chip FTSE 100 index fell 0.35% by 0728 GMT, giving up early gains and underperforming its European peers as the UK government signalled that there would be no easing of lockdown measures this week.

Worldwide coronavirus cases

The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide at the above time stood at 1,970,879, while 125,678 people have died from Covid-19 and 472,948 have recovered from the disease.
