Total sales dropped by 13% in comparison with March 2019, when they decreased by 3.7%, according to the SRC-KPMG retail sales monitor.
??? So sales were down 13% in March 2020 compared to the same month last year. And what does the 3.7% decrease refer to? March 2019 compared to 2018? Or what? It's a big secret.

As you worked out, March last year was pretty pants compared with March 2018 but this year is really grim. As Expected :(

Easter fell right at the end of March in 2018. These things make a difference, and I'd expect Govt and BBC analysers to know that...
