Six months on from lockdown

This week marks six months since the country went into lockdown, with the call from the Prime Minister for everyone who can to work from home, the shutdown of non-essential shops, schools and universities and the introduction of social distancing. A pre-Covid world seems so long ago and there are many aspects of life which may never be the same.
