“I just thought this is something in China, it probably won’t come to England, I’ll never have to deal with it. I thought as long as no one from China takes it here or it doesn’t go anywhere apart from China, then we’ll be fine. It probably won’t come here where it affects me.
And then when it did come here, what did you think then?
Um, I was quite surprised. It just happened so fast, and everyone was talking about it. It was all over the news.
Do you remember that kind of emotion at that time?
Not particularly, but I can remember not really knowing what to feel, if you know what I mean?”
