Today is the first anniversary of the first Coronavirus lockdown. It is to be marked with a national day of reflection.
More than 146,000 people have died from Covid-19 in the UK since the start of the pandemic, according to the latest government data. On 23rd March 2020, when the first lockdown started, that figure was 335.
Today we will be participating in a minute’s silence at 12pm to remember everyone who has died during the pandemic.
