More than £800,000 has been paid out in government support to help people in Guernsey through the coronavirus pandemic.
Over 1,000 people have received money from claims for unemployment or sickness benefit, income support and the island's new hardship fund.
£468,000 has been paid in grants to 156 small businesses and 24 applications for the payroll co-funding scheme have been approved, totalling around £100,000.
877 successful claims have also been made to the island's revenue service from businesses to defer certain taxes and costs such as social security contributions. The total value of these deferrals is £3.4 million.
Deputy Lyndon Trott, Vice-President of Guernsey's Policy & Resources Committee, says that while the government is providing support, not all businesses will be able to survive the crisis. He warns that the government must now reconsider its budget for the rest of the year.
