The BBC soap opera has made reference to the pandemic in recent episodes, but there has been no mention of the UK-wide lockdown.

In an episode broadcast this week (12 February), one character mentioned needing to grab his mask before heading to the shops. Other storylines have included Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy) working as an NHS nurse and referencing the pandemic.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed that Albert Square is experiencing the pandemic, but that episodes are filmed too far in advance to directly parallel its stories with the shifting lockdown rules.

‘Whilst references to Covid have been made, it would be impossible to accurately reflect the ever-changing situation without re-filming months of content,’ the spokesperson said in a statement.

Hotel room shakes during Japan earthquake

The 7.3 magnitude quake struck shortly before midnight Saturday and cracked walls, shattered windows and set off a landslide in Fukushima, the area closest to the epicentre.

Though hundreds of thousands of buildings lost electricity just after the quake, which struck at 11:08 p.m. local (14:08 GMT), by the next morning power had been restored to most.

Meeting a friend for a coffee on a park bench and outdoor picnics will be the first activities to get the green light on March 8, The Telegraph can reveal, with golf and tennis following shortly after. Boris Johnson said on Saturday he “very much hoped” also to reopen schools at the same time, although ministers are discussing a proposal that will see primaries return first with secondaries a further week or two later. On Saturday night a senior Government source confirmed that from March 8, people in England will be allowed to drink coffee on a park bench or have a picnic with anyone from their own household, or with another person on a one-to-one basis. Households, however, will not be allowed to mix inside or outside with anyone else. The changes are the first official confirmation that the national lockdown in England will ease on March 8. Ministers are privately also saying they expect pubs to be allowed to reopen ‘ with outdoor dining as minimum ‘ as soon as the first weekend in April, so households can have Easter lunch together. As part of a ‘carrot and stick’ approach, ministers are also working on an Australia-style approach that will see local areas locked down if there were a massive outbreak of the virus, or an outbreak of a new strain that could affect the efficacy of vaccines. The Prime Minister will this week meet with his Cabinet and scientific advisers to begin drawing up his roadmap out of lockdown, and will address the nation on Feb 22. The Telegraph understands the Government successfully hit its target of offering vaccines to Britain’s 14.9 million most vulnerable adults by Saturday, a day ahead of the plans.
