The Pandemic – One Year On

It’s a year since Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock announced in Parliament that “all unnecessary social contact should cease”. He made that announcement on 16 March 2020 and a week later Boris Johnson told the country that people “must” stay at home and that certain businesses must close.
