Webcam not working on Ubuntu 20.04 after recent kernel update

My builtin webcam stopped working after a kernel update issued after 22 April 2020 . Before this date i was able to take pictures on cheese and video call etc , and for a while i didn't use my webcam until yesterday i noticed that my webcam is getting detected as "usb 2.0 web camera" but its not working at all . Cheese shows a black screen when opened and Firefox asks for permission and then nothing happens . So i changed the kernel to version 5.0 and webcam started working properly . But i need to work it on the latest Ubuntu kernel . Any help will be thankful .

output of sudo lshw:
