British aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce will likely have to slash its 2020 cash flow target after airline customers parked hundreds of planes due to the coronavirus pandemic, analysts said. Rolls last updated the market at the end of February, when it forecast 2020 free cash flow of 1 billion pounds ($1.2 billion), excluding any material impact from COVID-19. Jefferies analyst Sandy Morris said he could see free cash flow drop into negative territory this year, even with the firm's 400 million pound cost cuts, based on flying hours which could be down about two-thirds for four months of 2020.

A new version of a breathing aid that can help coronavirus patients has been developed in less a week by a team involving Mercedes Formula One, and is being trialled at London hospitals. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices have been used in China and Italy to deliver air and oxygen under pressure to patients' lungs to help them breathe without the need for them to go on a ventilator, a more invasive process. The new CPAP has already been approved by the relevant regulator and now 100 of the machines will be delivered to University College London Hospital for trials, before being rolled out to other hospitals.

Thursday is arguably the day the impact became tangible, as a slew of UK companies warned coronavirus was hurting their business.
