You'll know the worst is behind us when you hear the pandemic being mentioned for the first time on the Archers.

Presumably there will be another time-lag and Ambridge will be in lock-down for 3 months while the rest of us are getting back to normality.

Holby have given their ventilators to the NHS, so they're not very prepared for COVID patients!
