He added that the capital was in “a grip of an unprecedented public health crisis and this is having a huge impact on workers and businesses of all shapes and sizes”.
Sadiq was particularly concerned about the impact of the virus on London workers in the “lowest-paid jobs” as well as SMEs in the hospitality and tourism sectors.
Richard Burge, chief executive at London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, commented: “Whether it be social or economic, coronavirus is and will continue to have a huge impact upon London’s businesses and economy.
“It’s vital that both local and national governments come together with the business community to do what is possible to mitigate that impact, for the good of residents in both the capital and country.”
