For the first time since the Covid-19 outbreak almost two months ago, no deaths have been reported to us from across the music world.

This is a huge relief. Long may it continue.

Past weeks here.

    They can’t sell toilet roll now for love nor money.

    Martin Lovett – RIP

    Eight weeks ago is hardly “since the Covid-19 outbreak.” It’s not even since the outbreak in the UK started but rather since the UK government decided to impose major restrictions on movement. But, you’re right, it’s good if there are no deaths to report.
