Sunak is "struggling to hold together his fractured party". The Guardian

Employees took on average 7.8 sick days in the past year, up from 5.8 before the pandemic, found the Chartered Institute for Professional Development.

However, other researchers have "strongly disagreed" with the latest conclusions. Long Covid sufferers report fatigue, brain fog, chest pain and shortness of breath. The Times
