A Silent London (COVID-19)

Updated: 6 days ago

I started this blog about the pandemic a year ago and never posted it hoping lockdown would be over by now. But here we are, it is the 23rd of March exactly one year since the lockdown has started. So this has been sitting in my drafts for a year now. To mark the one year anniversary of lockdown I have decided to post this blog. Continue to read life from a year ago.

Since COVID-19 broke throughout the world, life as we know it has changed. Life as we know has become a stand still and the effect of a world wide lockdown is apparent when it come's to one of the most famous cities in the world - London.

According to reports, back in November 2019 the first case of Coronavirus also known as COVID-19 appeared in a 55-year-old in China. Fast forward 3 months later and the entire world has come into a lockdown. With the television reality show, Big Brother being aired in a few countries such as Canada and Germany right now and the contestants being told about the viral pandemic, the entire world is living their own Big Brother series under a law-abiding lockdown for the foreseeable future.

That being said some of the biggest cities in the world has had a dramatic stand still in their daily life. One city which is the UK’s version of the 'city that never sleeps' London, England is under scrutiny for the lack of human contact that hasn’t been listened to from the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. Pictures have circulated of busy tubes but if you go to the hot spot locations such as the London Eye and Tower Bridge at times there isn’t a soul to be found.

For myself, it has been really tough. As I am a freelancer in television, all my work has been cancelled as well as my peers who also work in the industry. I have always had back up work with various other industries but they have also been cancelled. What I am concerned about is, not working for potentially months due to Coronavirus but when enquired to my bank and phone bill company 'what if' I couldn't pay certain bills they didn't have a plan of action or could answer any of my questions regarding my concerns financially.

But my industry is not the only industry to be affected. Along with huge chains such as McDonalds, Primark and Starbucks, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected millions around the world.

The London and Soho lifestyle has been hit hard with the night industry closing for months and the foreseeable future. Soho especially is a huge party and social scene and walking around central is now a mere ghost town.


Even though the lockdown is completely understandable, with mental health being such a huge issue in this day of age, it’s vital to constantly be in touch with friends and family through this awful, confusing time we are all in.
