Burger King to close some shops

The boss of Burger King UK has warned that economic damage triggered by the coronavirus pandemic may push the fast food chain to permanently shut up to 10% of its restaurants.
Those closures could lead to more than 1,600 lost jobs, Alasdair Murdoch said.
Government schemes to help the restaurant industry do not do enough to overcome the combination of fixed costs and lost sales, he said.
"I don't think you can ever get over the top of this problem," he said.
Burger King has reopened about 370 of its 530 restaurants in the UK
