The coronavirus pandemic has hit Britain hard. More people have died than in any other European country. Its economy has had a shock too, with the Bank of England forecasting the country will now enter its deepest recession in three centuries. Unemployment is set to more than double. Carry On Covid takes a snapshot of England through the lockdown, canvassing pub owners, school principals, carers, students and experts, from the south to the north, about their fears and hopes for life after corona. When London publican Viv Barrett closes for the lockdown, she wonders whether she'll ever re-open. Before the crisis, British pubs were already closing at a rate of 14 a week.
