Re: o/t Insurers duck and dive!

An insurer broker told me that it was very unlikely anyone could claim for business interruption re COVID-19. I was trying to.

If insurers allowed cover like this it would be open ended and immeasurable and therefore not permissible under their rules.

Any cover is likely to be around named diseases and if those diseases happened at the insured's premises etc. which when an outbreak occurred interrupted the business's operations.

I'm afraid a lot of misinformation going around about the Government enforcing closure (of pubs etc) rather than directing the public not to go and the insurance claim effects. Made no difference as far as I'm aware.

Not good news but I think understandable. People need to read what their policy states and not what they think it should state.
