Hours before the BoE unexpectedly expanded its bond purchase programme by 150 billion pounds, the Sun reported the BoE would take this action, in an article that also revealed some of finance minister Rishi Sunak’s spending plans.

“What we have to assume is that it was a leak and we therefore have to try to get to the bottom of it,” Bailey told parliament’s Treasury Committee at a regular hearing, adding that an investigation

(Fixes typo in dollar conversion in paragraph 2)

LONDON, Nov 23 (Reuters) – Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey said on Monday that he suspected the central bank’s most recent policy decision on Nov. 5 was leaked to the Sun, and that the newspaper’s report was not simply speculation presented as fact.

Hours before the BoE unexpectedly expanded its bond purchase programme by 150 billion pounds ($200 billion), the Sun reported the BoE would take this action, in an article that also revealed some of finance minister Rishi Sunak’s spending plans.

“What we have to assume is that it was a leak and we therefore have to try to get to the bottom of it,” Bailey told parliament’s Treasury Committee at a regular hearing, adding that an investigation was underway.

Bailey had previously been less clear about whether he viewed the report as being based on an unauthorised leak, or

Business Insider’s biggest healthcare stories week ending November 20

Hello, 

It feels so dissonant — the good news about vaccines working at the same time as case counts are rising even higher, New York’s shutting down its schools, and states and cities are making the tough decisions to lock back down in the hopes of mitigating even further spread of the virus. 

But that’s indeed where we find ourselves in November 2020. How’s everyone holding up? Has anyone restarted a hobby? My sourdough starter’s back from hibernation as part of the move, ready for a winter’s worth of baking. 

Before I jump right in to this week in vaccine news (Should I change the name of this newsletter to Insider Vaccines?), a reminder to subscribe to this newsletter here. And pass it along to your friends who might also enjoy daily dispatches of healthcare news!

YouTube and influencer business trends newsletter November 18

Hi, this is Amanda Perelli. Welcome back to Insider Influencers, our weekly rundown on the influencer and creator economy. Sign up for the newsletter here.

My colleagues Dan Whateley and Ashley Rodriguez spoke with laid-off employees and industry insiders about ESPN’s abrupt exit.

“It was kind of shocking,” one laid-off staffer said. “All of us working for esports thought we were working on building something that was very important for ESPN’s future. We really showed that during the pandemic.”

Ultimately, insiders said that business problems at

California Saw Fastest-Ever Increase In Covid-19 Cases During First Week Of November

Topline

California saw coronavirus cases spike more than 50% during the first week of November, making it the fastest-ever increase in the state as the U.S. experiences a dangerous third resurgence of the coronavirus. 

Key Facts

From November 1 to November 7, the state saw a 51.3% increase in new Covid-19 cases, which is more than the 39.2% increase the state saw in mid-June. 

California Gov. Gavin Newsom said the virus is spreading broadly throughout the state among every age group and demographic.

Because of the surge, 94% of the state’s population—including Ventura, Santa Clara and Alameda counties—will have to shut down bars, indoor dining, gyms and religious institutions again after moving backwards to the most restrictive tier in the state’s reopening
