coronavirus at eight a.m.. while on the one hand we see lots time now for a look at this of people being quite scornful of those week's travel show. who have piled up their trolley with toilet rolls, or whatever, it's kind of almost rational when you see other people doing it to think you should do a bit of it yourself. and now we are at the stage where people might have to stay at home for a while, and you can see why it becomes something that people might becomes something that people might be inclined to do. even the lady at checkoutin be inclined to do. even the lady at checkout in tesco yesterday suggested i buy more nappies, so it has affected even the staff, hasn't it? hello, and welcome and we'll be speaking to the british retail consortium to the travel show. at 8:50am this morning. here is louise with a look now, this week, i'm in the maldives, at this morning's weather. looking back at our best bits from the a very good morning to you, louise. past few good morning, everybody. we've got some rain around first thing this months. morning, but that should clear, and the story will improve for many of us. the story will improve for many of us. sunshine and blustery showers are likely to continue, though. so we've got this area of low pressure influencing the story at the moment. it's brought some heavy rain through
6:17 am
the night, actually, across north—west england and wales, and that will creep towards the london let's start with a little area as we go through the day. but glimpse into the future, the heaviest of the rain for much of when lucy descended into a space centre the heaviest of the rain for much of built deep inside the day—to—day is likely to be across parts of lincolnshire down a towards the midlands and the isle of spanish cave wight. behind it, sunny spells, 5y5tem. scattered showers, but the wind is since hg wells wrote of the martian really starting to pick up. a invasion in his 1897 novel blustery story widely across the war of the worlds, the red planet country. gales are likely across the has captured our imaginations. far north of scotland, and swinging at over 33 million miles away, round to a northerly direction. it's incredible to think so a noticeable difference with the feel we could one of the weather here, four or five day coloni5e mar5. degrees at the very best. further for the next 24 south and east we should see temperatures around 10 degrees. hours, i'll be learning how to saying mostly dry until the end of the day, and then that rain will live life ease through the london area. and like a mars then overnight, with clear skies, coloni5t — in this could actually catch you out first thing tomorrow morning. with spain. those clear skies and the wind a5troland is a project set up to see how humans would potentially cope direction changing slightly, the living on temperatures are going to fall away really quite sharply. so low single mars, from figures, maybe just really quite sharply. so low single figures, maybejust below really quite sharply. so low single figures, maybe just below in a few a places into the far north, so we psychological could be waking to a picture like this on monday morning. frost is perspective. i look likely first thing. cold and frosty, ready, ifeel
6:18 am
then, on monday. but a good deal of ready, i'm dry weather around, which means lots of lovely sunshine, and we can do ready. with that, i hope, to lift our our aim is to get to spirits at the moment. yes, we will are5, our base, have some cloud and rain gathering where we will be spending into far north—west at the the night. it's anticipated that the end of the day. indication of another weather front that's moving first coloni5t5 to mars will also the day. indication of another weatherfront that's moving in. so wet and windy by the end of the day have to live underground here. dry with them sunshine, and in caves or lava tube5 temperatures recovering. highs of 13 to avoid degrees. now, this interstellar radiation. weatherfront temperatures recovering. highs of 13 degrees. now, this weather front is going to weaken as it pushes its way south and east into tuesday so potentially a band of cloud. but look at this conveyor belt of wet weather sitting out into the ah, we south—western that could reduce a have a little bit of hiccups towards the middle part of the week. on tuesday table. the pod is set with everything it will be largely dry, with some cloud around, as that weak weather to meet your basic needs and, front drift south. more persistent after all that work, rain drifting into the far north—west yet again, but incredibly it's time for dinner. mild as the winds swing around to i'm going for one of my favourite di5he5, bologne5e. a south—westerly direction. we could see temperatures up into the mid right, the water's in. teens across the give it a stir, leave for ten minutes. south—east corner. that weather front sinks south. a it looks a little bit like plastic. bit of uncertainty as to how much but i'm rain it could potentially bring into so hungry.
6:19 am
england and wales. high—pressure is still set to build, but the position of that high has changed somewhat. that is so the story hasn't really changed actually quite too much. it is going to be a nice. settled week ahead for many of this experience us, particularly in comparison to the isn't cheap. weather we have seen so far this year. but there is a slight question for non—scientists, it's about £5,000 for the 30—day mark by the end of the week experience, across parts of england and wales of which includes preparation, whether we could see some rain, and training and about three thenit days in the cave. whether we could see some rain, and then it will get a little bit imean, cooler, but next weekend looks dry, settled and sunny for many. dry and settled, we will take that after the mar5. few weeks we have had. many thanks. now it's time for the film review, with jane hill and mark kermode. lucy there, finding out what our future holiday5 on the martian surface might feel like. now, this week, i'm in the maldives, hello and a very warm welcome which is a dream de5tination to the film review on bbc news. for many people. to take us through this week's but there is no doubt cinema releases is mark kermode. what have you that tourism and climate been watching, mark? change have had an impact on its environment,
6:20 am
and a very mixed bag. a while back, i came here to meet we have misbehaviour, some of the people which is a true life story of the disruption of trying to do the 1970 miss world. we have bacurau, which is something about brilliantly indescribable and very strange. that. chuckles. we're starting with something that and my spy, a kind of up until now most tourists haven't updated kindergarten cop. wanted to see on their pri5tine so we start with beaches, but which is vital in the fight against a true story? climate change, 5eagra55. so, yes, so misbehaviour, which i know you've seen as well. so, sandra, tell so based on real events. a kind of comedy—drama me about the disruption of the 1970 what is miss world. seagrass? it is amazing to throw your mind seagra55 is very important, because actually it has a lot back to 1970 when miss world of the functions in the ocean. was a really big thing, not only is it a habitat it was on the bbc, everybody sat round and watched or a nursery for many animals, it. many fish, during the different gugu mbatha—raw is miss granada, the dignified contestant who seems stages of their life, to have a chance of breaking but it also provides mo5t the competition's white—only sort of the oxygen that we need for us, of, you know, glass ceiling. also, for breathing. meanwhile, keira knightley and what's the and jessie buckley are the sort of chalk and cheese women's biggest activists who decided that threat to seagrass? what they are going to do is to disrupt the cattle market in most of the reserves, of miss world by making their own they thought that 5eagra55, it's not way to the competition and then looking nice for the guests, creating a spectacle that will draw attention because it's not the white sand to the rising woman's movement. that they want to have here's a for their pictures. so they used to remove clip. it from the beach because of
6:21 am
how do we actually that. get in without being caught? shall we have a look at the seagrass? yeah, sure, let's go. we buy vamos. tickets. it is estimated that the world's oceans lose the equivalent of two laughter. unless that's too organised. 5occer pitches' worth of and you lot, you'd have to blend in. 5eagra55 communal clothes. laughter. every hour of every day. and, because 5eagra55 ab5orb5 and stores carbon far more effectively than whoo! rainfore5t, it's vital to ooh, wow! see it thrive. oh, i love them! no, you look like a bag lady. here in the maldives, what, i look like you? many resorts are realising that healthy underwater ecosystem is more this is what you're wearing. important than tourist5' this is your skirt. picture—perfect idea of what the ocean floor laughter. should i am gonna win. look, could you...? look god, i can't breathe. shoes. like. 0h, love that one. laughing. let's switch continents now to florida, in the united states. it's been a popular lady—like. i look exactly like my mother. destination for years. i look like it's filled with flashy attractions like universal studios, disney world, and
6:22 am
my mother's sofa. epcot. now, the thing i really liked but if you're used to a more basic about this was on the one hand, way of life, the state still has plenty i mean, it is a remarkable true story. to offer, as mike found out these two things converge, when he dropped in these two things happen at the same time. on the gentle the second thing is what the film community of does tonally is it has a very good pinecraft. balance — in the same way as something like made in dagenham since starting as a tourist resort in the 19205, or, you know, more recently, this has become a holiday battle of the sexes does — of taking a very important, hotspot for the amish. we have a mural here depicting you know, socio—economic story and putting it in a form everyday amish life, which is really entertaining. and a friendly man welcoming u5. yes. so there are great performances. maybe we there's stuff like, you know, rhys ifans as eric morley, can ride who is kind of the guy in charge of the competition, the horse. you know, explains... he is really good, i think, yes! and he's also really, the amish are christians really enjoying himself. that hold onto a simple, yes! he's having a great time. rural way of life. you've got greg kinnear as bob hope they're best known who is kind of the celebrity guest — for the regimented, plain clothes, worn for reasons of humility and modesty. although actually, i think the show is stolen by leslie manville they also reject most forms as his long—suffering wife dolores, of modern technology, some even who has kind of seen bob hope be at these competitions before. avoiding electricity and then, at the centre from the of it, you have this — i mean, it is actually pretty much national grid. historically what happened... yes, yes. it's a very secure life. you grew up in an area ..but told with great where your life was always sort of — you knew what to expect. wit, great humour. we heard a couple people say well, of course, as time goes on,
6:23 am
they thought it was a bit flimsy. it's not so simple anymore. i think what they meant by flimsy you know, we don't do things was strangely accessible like we did 100 years ago, because i thought actually, or 50 years the story did grapple with some complicated... yes. you know, there are conflicts of interest. ago. you know, there is — this might look like a normal on the one hand, there is the story street in central florida, of the gugu mbatha—raw‘s character. but actually, many of these on the other hand, there are amish holiday homes, is the story of the growing women's lib movement. and if you look right here, and the fact this dinosaur—like competition, which was welcomed this is a powerline. into everyone's home. but of even the amish want to kick back on vacation. course, it's... the neighbourhood offers more modern conveniences than you might find i spent the whole film seething, in one of thinking "oh, my god! we actually did this! their this is only 50 years ago!" traditional settlements. i mean, it's a very good historical bicycle5 and golf carts reminder of how horrific it was. replace horse and buggies, the most alarming thing and the holiday homes — they all have power. is the moment when they do the turn. we heard there's a saying that oh, yes! whatever happens in pinecraft stays 0h! i mean, and it is cattle market—level. .. in oh, i was literally cringing! yes, yes, yes. but i thought it was — pinecraft. i thought it was really entertaining, but i also thought it told the story well. can you both tell me yes, absolutely. a bit about pinecraft? it's hugely enjoyable. there's no other place you could say maybe a couple — like it in the world, the keira knightley character i don't think. jessie buckley character, why do you say that? although they're both terrific... it's really a social and both historically... life for all the people. slightly — yeah, historically all accurate. you go to the park, it's kind maybe slightly, you know, of a gathering place where people
6:24 am
not very well drawn characters, but the historical representation come and visit. of the period is fantastic, there's shuffleboard down there. i think. i think we've been very blessed to have a place to go like this, my feeling about those — i mean, i think there is a certain and the people accept broad strokes—ness to some us, and — of those characters, but actually, i — in exactly and yeah, it's the same way as i didn't mind it quite unique. with made in dagenham, i think that what it is doing mike, living it up is it's attempting to tell that with the amish. story to the widest possible audience, because what you don't finally to sri lanka, want is to be singing to the choir. which is planning to quadruple you don't want to be make a movie in size its only about this subject that literally just tells a story to people unesco—li5ted ra i nfore5t who already know it. absolutely. re5erve. what youn want to do but you'll need to watch out is you want to tell it for the snakes, a5 lucy found out. to the broadest possible audience. not least because you want to go "this really happened ! " now, i know you can't see much apart from really tall trees, yes! and millions of people watched! and it was really is remarkable. but mother yes, yes. it is definitely worth nature's 5oundtrack seeing, i'd say. thumbs up from me, absolutely. yes. so, your second choice today? is truly yeah, so bacurau. this is from brazilian film—maker kleber mendonca filho, who has co—directed it — spectacular. i talked about aquarius on the programme this is the edge of sri lanka's about a year or so ago. la5t primary rainfore5t, this is kind of a political satire. sinharaja. it's a it takes some inspiration from that story the most dangerous game, about hunting humans. hotspot for it is a remote village that discovers it has effectively been biodiversity.
6:25 am
written off the map. rare plants, unique bird species, their phone signal has stopped amphibians and snakes all thrive here. working, their water has been cut it is so important ecologically off, they discover that they no that there are plans to quadruple longer appear on satellite maps, it in size. so they have effectively been sort the only way to explore of deemed to not exist. it is by foot. and then a bunch of rich, ridma used to hike and swim armed tourists turn up, in the forest as a child. led by udo kier — it is so dense. which is never a good sign — and the film then goes yeah. from being on the one hand a kind of magicaljodorowsky—like satire there's only a tiny bit into something which is a quite of sunlight coming through. a grim and gruelling, he now runs tours of brutal thriller. and what i liked about it very the jungle around the island. it's slippery. much was, for a start, the sinharaja forest covers more it is hard to pigeonhole it. than 8,000 hectares, i am very aware that the more but you don't need to walk very far you know about the political to spot some wildlife. situation, the more you can read see? from it, and i was thinking "we'll, i'm watching this as a cineaste rather than a politician, so i am getting half of the story" that's the green viper, but it's very well directed, under the leaves. it's very unexpected. almost the same there are moments of real brutality colour as the leaves. yeah. in it and it's certainly one of those films that afterwards, it's tiny. it is. so if this snake bites you will have a very long discussion me, what happens? about what it all added up to. it's quite i thought it was an interesting piece. it's in cinemas painful. it depends on your for a couple of weeks, and then condition. stay away! it's on mubi from the end of ridma's expert eyes soon spotted another baby snake on our path. the month. what is
6:26 am
0k. the name and now my spy. of this yeah. so, you've seen this movie a million snake? times before in otherforms. it is the eye—catcher snake, in this particular format, because they used to... so dave bautista is this muscle—bound special agent who, at the very beginning of the movie, on the tree at your eye we see him doing a mission level, and with this... see? in which he just basically punches he really tried to go people and blows things up. for you then. they say "you're not great at being a spy. yeah, he doesn't have we're going to send venom, but he has teeth. you on a surveillance mission." they will bite you of course, he ends up sort of falling for the person until some blood comes he is surveilling and, more importantly, getting wrapped out. around the little finger oh, my of the child who is also involved in the god, wow. surveillance. you weren'tjoking, were here's a clip. 0k. you, when you said it you don't believe me? was worth it. look, kid, you're just not the spy type. every time when i come into here, 0h, isee. it's notjust going to the jungle. ijust come into the big, so i should just stay in my box giant living creature. and dream of maybe being a barista the rainforest is alive. it's or a fashion designer or a wedding planner. or maybe an er nurse alive. like your mother. you know, i was thinking of asking bobbi anyway. right, that's she seems more like the brains of the operation, whereas you're it for more the brawn. this week. who are you calling brawn?
6:27 am
we've got loads of brand—new i was an analyst! adventures coming up very soon. she doesn't have an but for now, from me, ade adepitan, ounce of my training! if anybody's going to teach you, and all of the travel show team it's going to be... in the gorgeous nicely done. maldives, it's goodbye. don't do that again. you can hear the score coming in — they're going "this bit‘s funny!" laughs. here's the thing. it's perfectly fine. i — there was a couple of chuckles. it's basically kindergarten cop meets spy meets stakeout. it's a very, very well—trodden path. you know, dave bautista's funny — although he has actually done funnier stuff in things like guardians of the galaxy. i chuckled a few times. the screening i was in, there was one person who was laughing their head off all the whole way through and i imagined good morning. they were a big dave bautista fan, welcome to breakfast but it's — it's — it's kind of — with chris mason and nina warhurst. it's the very definition of meh, our headlines today. shielding the vulnerable. it's all the government plans new measures as it steps up the fight right. against coronavirus. i mean, it's not — i've seen much worse, i've seen much better. the foreign office advises against is it in your category non—essential travel to spain. of i wasn't bored? some airlines have cancelled flights to the country, yes. which is now the second it's in my category of i wasn't bored.
6:28 am
i love that category. worst affected in europe. i wanted it to be funnier than it was, but i have seen far coming up less funny things. laughs. in sport. that won't go on the poster for it. that is not happening! i'll be talking about grassroots sports which is going ahead at but you are probably all over the poster of a portrait football clu bs of a lady on fire. sports which is going ahead at football clubs like this one in and we both love it. greater manchester with most elite it is the last week i'm going to do this, because i think it's probably and professional sport either postponed or cancelled. the last week it's good morning. gonna be, you know... heavy rain for some will ease away but it — i think this is one to an afternoon of sunny spells of the best films i have and blustery showers. seen in ages. i'll have all the details it's directed by celine sciamma, who i think is fantastic. coming up very shortly. a fantastic central performance adele haenel. it's, you know, a period drama but it's very contemporary. it's about the female gaze, but it's also a love story. it has the most extraordinary use of music, despite the fact there's good morning. very little music in it, and ijust thought it was — it's sunday the 15th of march. our top story... i — i loved it. the government says it will soon be it's beautiful. i think it's a beautiful stepping up measures to protect film in every way. people from coronavirus, and also flawless. including shielding elderly i mean, i can't think of anything and vulnerable that's wrong with it. people. i keep thinking there must be so far, ministers have stopped short something that's wrong with it. nope, absolutely flawless. of introducing some of the strict i think it's up there with parasite controls that have been imposed in mainland europe. in terms of not a step put wrong. it comes as the number of people i'm with you on that one. known to have died from the virus and let's talk about dvd — there may be more a little more in the uk has reached 21. sophie hutchinson has people — a little more of us the latest developments. all sitting at home watching films
6:29 am
in the coming weeks, as the number of cases and deaths so you'll need to come up from the coronavirus rise sharply, with some goodies. exactly. pressure is building dvds are gonna be very important on the government to do more in the coming weeks. to tackle the outbreak. so, le mans ‘66 — or as it was known in america, the virus attacks the tissue where it was nominated — and airways deep inside the lungs surprisingly — for a best picture oscar, le mans ‘66 is the story — and ministers are highlighting plans for more life—saving er, ford v ferrari it was known ventilators to be manufactured in america — so it's basically a kind of racing rivalry as quickly as possible. story on—track, it's also said the nhs will buy up beds in private off—track. two great performances — hospitals to boost capacity. christian bale and matt damon. i have to say christian bale got but there's been strong criticism of the government strategy. all of the attention in terms hundreds of scientists have written of the acting. yes. urging ministers to introduce i think matt damon had the harder role. i think that role was actually more tougher measures to stop the virus complicated because it seemed to be spreading and warning of the risks the less complex role. and in fact, although it of a lack of action. sounds counter—intuitive, it is often harder to play and other experts agree. an apparently less complex role. it's thought the government may now i thought it was very really entertaining, i thought it was really good, ban mass gatherings next week and its scientific advisors have terrific sound design. i mean, reminded me, said measures to protect the sick to some extent — well, and elderly and to isolate i remember going to see the original le man with my dad. whole families will be needed soon. everyone of my age was taken to see the original le man by their dad. but the government's main message but it was a great story, remains for anyone with a cough well told, very moving. or fever to stay at home i was just slightly surprised and for everyone to ensure that it was up for best picture. thorough hand washing. but, you know, it's a very good piece of entertainment, sophie hutchinson, bbc news. a very solidly our political correspondent
6:30 am
made film. nick eardleyjoins us from our ok, and we'll need lots of that. but it's not portrait of a lady on fire! london newsroom. so go and see that! sophie touched on it there, go see that. go see that before reports they shut the cinemas! that entire families may be asked to oh, i shouldn't tempt fate! don't say that! stay at home another report that the i know, i know! over 705 will be asked to stay at it breaks my heart to even think about it, it really does. home for weeks and weeks. when can ok, let's not — ok. right. we expect an official update positive energy! thank you. thanks for being here. from thanks for watching. the government? we don't have dates fingers crossed we'll all be here next week. for any of this yet, thanks. see you next time. but the bye— bye. chuckles. 0h! government has a scientific advisory group that advises it on emergencies and it has said that it wants to pretty soon take the next planned interventions in the response to coronavirus. so that will mean things like homes isolated together. at the moment, if you or i have a carfora at the moment, if you or i have a carfor a fever we are at the moment, if you or i have a car for a fever we are supposed to stay at home for seven days, but this will mean that if family members we live with or flatmates or anything like that show symptoms, we are all going to have to stay in the house for a while. likewise, talking about shielding vulnerable groups, that largely means older people and
6:31 am
is likely to involve them staying at home, social distancing for those groups as well, and there has been some criticism of the government for not doing more, for not moving hello, this is breakfast faster, and the line we keep hearing with chris mason and nina warhurst. from downing street is that they are following the science and that they good morning, here's a summary wa nt to ta ke of today's main stories from bbc news: following the science and that they want to take these measures at a time when they are going to be most effectual. we also heard the government says it will soon be stepping up measures to protect from the people from coronavirus, health secretary matt hancock in the including shielding elderly and vulnerable people. papers this morning. he has been ministers have so far stopped short of introducing some of the strict invoking the blitz spirit saying, look, we're all going to have to controls that have been imposed in mainland europe. it comes as the number of people make sacrifices here, it won't known to have died from the virus be particularly easy period but the in the government is ready and it's going uk has to ta ke government is ready and it's going to take the measures that it needs reached 21. to take the measures that it needs to take. he is also on the andrew marr show in easyjet has joined jet2 to take. he is also on the andrew marrshow in an to take. he is also on the andrew marr show in an hour or so so we in cancelling flights to spain. will hear more from him then. the airline announced it would be suspending all flights from tuesday. thanks, nick. it comes as the world's biggest british holiday makers carrier, american airlines, continue to be affected, has announced its suspending nearly with easyjet the latest airline all of its long—haul international to announce it will stop flights flights to and from spain. the government there has declared a state of emergency. our correspondent, from
6:32 am
simonjones, is outside heathrow monday. this morning. big implications, simon, for people travelling to and from spain. but the white house says president trump then lots of questions about has tested negative for coronavirus. travelling anywhere really mr trump underwent the check after being exposed to an infected and person a few days ago. therefore really big and awkward the news came hours after the us questions for the travel industry to wrestle with? yes, extended its travel ban to include britain and ireland, which will come into force early very difficult on times for travellers and the travel industry alike. particularly when you consider 18 million tuesday british people travel to spain each year. now the reason they arose morning. this lockdown in spain is because it's got the second highest rate of deaths from coronavirus in europe supermarkets are urging and the lockdown means that people customers not to panic buy during the outbreak. they are being told that they should retailers and online sellers have faced huge demand, only leave their homes if they are with pictures emerging of empty shelves in some stores. going out to get food in a letter to consumers, members of the british retail consortium or medical supplies or they need to get to work have urged shoppers to be considerate and ensure and can't work from home, so you can there are enough supplies for everyone. usually at this time we'd be see why it is not an ideal place to catching up with the latest results be on holiday. as after a bumper saturday of top—level sport. a result of that, not so this weekend. almost all professional matches easyj et be on holiday. as a result of that, easyjet overnight announced that or events have been abandoned, so we're using this although it will run

6:36 am
here, as i mentioned, the girls are lockdown and follow the italian playing later on this afternoon, all route and the gradualist approach sorts of considerations here. we which is more akin to the are british approach, which france has been going to see some football, though, following has been put to one side and hopefully we can see some smiley and we‘ve got these very draconian faces as well. we will bring you measures which are going to that through the morning. lots com pletely measures which are going to completely change lives to talk about here unsworth junior football club. back to you. we from now. but in the meantime, these elections look forward to that, we look forward to are going ahead. there is a slight seeing how the kids have learned discrepancy there and a lot of to questions have been asked whether celebrate a goal, for example, that was a sensible without directly interacting. i was telling you earlier to test out my decision. from your perspective there in paris, how sun's football practice they built is life in france in hand washing is part of the activities that morning. loads of right now? well, i things like that happening, people mean it‘s been a big making the most of the situation and using it as an experience, a way wake—up call. up mean it‘s been a big wake—up call. up untila mean it‘s been a big wake—up call. to up until a couple of days ago there learn. i have a four-year-old was a slightly lackadaisical cynical daughter. i wonder if what we are going through now will be their response to the first memories, the things they think back to an adult as the thing whole thing and that kind of defined the moment they people saying we are not going started remembering what was going to go on. so central is that message down this road, around hand washing, and the but the government potential for staying at home. around hand washing, and the potential for staying at homem would be lovely to hear from you has been at pains to say this morning examples of kindness to people no, this is really serious. i and creativity, where people are
6:37 am
trying to combat the coronavirus. think suddenly today and certainly and also learn tomorrow and people are going to wa ke tomorrow and people are going to wake up with the realisation life is from it. so changed irrevocably at least for do let us the next few weeks, and from know, if you have got examples tomorrow, with no schools, shops, apart from of the data from where you are. the essentials, very little movement across the uk and around the world, churches and places of worship on the streets i would imagine are working out how best to keep because people will start heating people safe during a pandemic, calls to stay at home, even if it means major changes to centuries old traditions. it‘s going to feel a very different country our religion editor martin bashir has been taking a look at the impact indeed. thank you. hugh schofield coronavirus reporting live is from already paris. having. the vatican has announced that its easter week celebrations easter sunday last year, and will take place this year without a congregation, due to the coronavirus more than 100,000 pilgrims gather in pandemic in italy. services affected include rome. but the church of palm sunday, good friday, and easter saturday and sunday. st peter, last weekend, pope francis which for centuries has welcomed delivered his traditional weekly message via live streaming before saints and sinners, briefly appearing at a window. is now closed. good morning to you. you are watching breakfast from bbc news. and it may stay that plans to combat the coronavirus way this outbreak are set to be significantly easter. so what of the escalated in the coming catholic church in england days and weeks. the new government proposals include measures and wales?“ to shield the elderly
6:38 am
through self—isolation, easter. so what of the catholic church in england and wales? if we in this country are asked to plans to help the nhs close churches for the celebration of by buying up thousands mass, i will say, of beds in private hospitals, churches for the celebration of mass, iwill say, yes, people should not come to mass. and efforts to increase but yes, churches the production of ventilators. should remain open, so we‘re joined now by dr rob people can go barnett from the british and pray. and yes, i will medical should remain open, so people can go and pray. and yes, iwill ask priests to continue to celebrate association. mass, even if they do it on their and very good morning to own. and everyone was singing along you. you to all the songs that the work for the bma but also at the front line, you see patients all the church's wider ministry is also being impacted. for almost time. how do you think the nhs is faring so far? so far not 65 years, the too bad. i think there are issues about how josana house impacted. for almost 65 years, the josa na house and impacted. for almost 65 years, the josana house and pilgrimage trust information is getting out to has taken josana house and pilgrimage trust has ta ken disabled josana house and pilgrimage trust has taken disabled children to lourdes in france every easter. us as professionals, but in terms of it patience and patience i‘m seeing is is the catholic church's largest and a gp, actually most of them old est is the catholic church's largest and oldest pilgrimage. but it is not are happening this year. it was very being very reasonable, most of difficult, having to pick up that them are understanding the situation. we are understanding the situation. we phone and ring a family and are having to change explained the reasons why the the way we are pilgrimage wasn't going to be taking working, moving away from place. for a lot of these face—to—face consultations, to try to deal with things on children, this could be the first the holiday they telephone, and certainly we are have ever had. for the families, triaging patients more to try to
6:39 am
this could be the only respite care make sure the patients who do come to see us actually don‘t have signs they receive. coronavirus does not discriminate, and of coronavirus. i was going for muslims, to ask you about exactly that because the advice from the government is for the hajj pilgrimage two, discriminate, and for muslims, the people to stay at home or if they hajj pilgrimage two, which discriminate, and for muslims, the hajj pilgrimage two, which attracts over 2 million pilgrims injuly, need to interact with a health is also now in jeopardy. professional ring the 111 phone service and crucially not to come over 2 million pilgrims injuly, is also now injeopardy. —— to over 2 million pilgrims injuly, is also now in jeopardy. —— to mecca. into a surgery and spread it to this demand in leeds is preparing eve ryo ne into a surgery and spread it to everyone else. in your experience, worshippers for potential is that happening? it's happening disappointment. —— this imam. more and more. in the early days worshippers for potential disappointment. -- this imam. as a person of faith i believe that patients were not very happy about the fact they couldn‘t come to see my god wants me to not only protect us. we have an open access practice my own self, but also protect the lives and so the idea of them of others. and if that means having to phone up to be seen postponing a particular obligation due to circumstances beyond my has been a bit control, then i am following problematic, but we‘ve had notices the message of god by on the door, and our reception staff have been turning patients away if not performing that particular religious they have just come up with coughs obligation. back in rome, and colds and viral infections. do the annual you feel you have been given the delivery of flowers in the right information to pass on to netherlands used to decorate saint patients? i know a family where the peters on easter sunday has little boy got pally, the doctor been cancelled, signalling the said he needs to stay at home with possibility that for the first the rest of you can go out and the
6:40 am
time in modern history, this year's open mother of that child was then very our mass confused. what‘s the point in keeping the child on his own at the will not rest of us are allowed to go out?|j take place. think that‘s the problem, the information is coming through to —— open air mass. us let's talk now to monsignor but it is slow, it is sometimes john daly, vicar—general in the catholic diocese of salford. conflicting, and i have to be and from exeter, the reverend professor gina radford, honest, you know, we are being a church of england vicar who is also a former deputy chief medical told by the people who employ officerfor england. us, actually it‘s business as usual. of fatherjohn, when you sat down, i course, it‘s not business as usual went to shake your hand because because we can‘t do things in the there is so much that is automatic. way we used to and i think with and i was thinking about in having to suspend a mass environment, you walk in, put your the routine hand in the water, peace be with monitoring of patients who are you, there is so much about the basically stable and just deal with service... a lot of things to the problems that are there, so the reassess and review how we do system is not to change, it‘s got to things. things that you just do treat us differently as much as we naturally, because people have done this for years and years and have to treat a patient the years. tricky thing here is that this might you can always spot a catholic, by the way. when they walked down encourage more people to do remote the cinema they go down the aisle and consultations via video genuflect. shaking hands is one of link. it's those natural things they do. fine up to a point, but the difficulty is, all of a sudden you we are so used to that face—to—face have got to stop and think about human—to—human in the same room it.
6:41 am
and it is notjust shaking hands, conversation. it is, for all it is even the way of the advancesin conversation. it is, for all of the advances in technology, a lot better you greet people, and more satisfying as a patient weather you hug or david and i suspect as a doctor than trying to moyes, for instance, and get the line to work and then one person can‘t hear the other and all nicola tater, that kind of stuff. we get because of that hug, david moyes is now in a lot from facial cues, the interaction self isolation. there are issues for with patients, not just from facial cues, the interaction with patients, notjust the face of ourselves, even how we how people are acting when they are approach with you, so trying to do everything people, people who are on the telephone isn‘t easy. in need, people, people who are in need, actually, even i‘m not people who just think that if we particular don't go to greet them, are use to doing everything electronically, and we are being we being standoffish? there are things that encouraged to use the consultations, we do naturally, the first time we so it is a different way of working, meet somebody, but can have different way of working for us, a big impression. gina, let's bring clearly a different way of working you with patients. i‘m also worried into the conversation. that gets to about the fact all the heart of it. with the two patients have cuts access to electronic devices, that you have professionally worn in recent yea rs, that you have professionally worn in recent years, on the one hand, there not all patients are used to using them are these very clear and understandable public health in this sort of situation. so we messages, but on the other hand, in have got to be really careful we the context of going to church, it actually don‘t create more problems isa the context of going to church, it is a social occasion, it is a by what we are doing but, at the end spiritual occasion for people, and of the day, we have to find ways it matters. and finding that balance isa of it matters. and finding that balance is a tricky one. looking after ourselves, protecting
6:42 am
doctors, the staff and that‘s what it is. but it it‘s about. doctors, the staff and that‘s what it's about. what would you like to also allows us to be really quite see happen now? we have seen with a creative and inventive in the way we hand washing and tissues in the bin communicate with each other and the and people staying at home, way we interact. you know, you have the been giving examples earlier of how british public are incredibly compliant when they are told what to people have been greeting each other do but at the moment the messages which may not don‘t feel as clear as they be the traditional could be. what needs to happen? we ways, but really, they are are innovative ways. for example, in my getting this slow drip effect church, we aren't sharing the piece of how we are moving from one phase to physically by shaking hands. we are sharing it in sign language, which another. i got no doubt we are going to end has been such an amazing thing for people to discover. a up with whole mass gatherings different way of communicating and interacting, and showing that they ceasing, more and more elderly ca re interacting, and showing that they care and they relate to each people being asked, if they other. so at the moment, gina, are you are in ca re people being asked, if they are in care homes and things, we are going advising worshippers to attend, but to reduce the number of visits, just be cautious about the way but it‘s having this information so they interact? yes, most definitely. at people can plan for what‘s the moment, church services are happening. people are uncertain going ahead and it is about what‘s going on and i think important that we are able to maintain our worship there‘s a lot of fake news around and we have got together for as long as we to rely on... i can. so what we are saying is, use the encourage people to look at sanitisers when you come in. the nhs
6:43 am
website because actually that‘s not just be the latest information on mindful of, you know, of those it. you physical interactions and also be mention the elderly, something i‘ve been worrying about my own mindful that there might be a grandad, few who was 96, should we go and see things in the service, in the holy them at the moment when we have not communion, which will be slightly been told they are on their own, different. but we are still all should we make the most of this worshipping together. payment when we can socialise? and john, providing this common sense, the for importance of hygiene is really you, what is the next stage? we are important, i also think that we have all keeping an eye on the got to avoid very advice, but there is one thing, close contact. it is difficult. my mum the measures you are speaking about a moment ago, is 94. i‘m not and there is another thing, where we going to go around and hug and kiss may be next sunday, for instance? her at the moment but i am very that's correct. the main thing first happy to see her. and was not to panic. also to follow the keep a distance because i want to protect advice that is coming to us from her, as well, and i think that‘s experts. that is important. the main what we are having to do, thing is to look after the safety of adopt a common—sense approach. many people who do come to church, what we are having to do, adopt a common-sense approach. will you take her out? we did yesterday who are elderly, and vulnerable. so but you have to make sure whether i win in the future remains to be seen. it's common that they really ta ke you have to make sure that they sense, it's really take precedence in most of a large part of the decisions that we make, and their safety is paramount, it. we've all got and that to work together in this. can be, not only those who and, come to providing people do work together
6:44 am
church, but those who are at home, and understand what‘s being who cannot get out, we have got expected, then i think we will get to be careful how we treat them, so through it. i have got a lot that we don't take the virus into of faith in the chief medical officer and a scientific officer in what their homes. we also they are saying. i know people have to be very think they are saying. i know people think they could be controversial we careful on how we communicate to the haven‘t gone to a complete lockdown, sacraments, so things like the sign but i understand the science of of peace, which we can say where we are trying to get to and i naturally, as gina points out, sign think it‘s important we actually follow that advice as language is very important. we can do things like that. but also the it comes way we distribute communion is through but it would be useful for us to know where we are going very, very important. and also and over what sort of time period the fact just so that people can plan properly. that in our tradition, it has been i‘m concerned about the economic for a long time, it has been effects of the panic buying an obligation to go to mass on that there is because that‘s doing none a sunday. and what we say of us any good. i think it‘s the now is, if uncertainty causing a we have to do, if we have to do, say problem. thank you, doctor, we really appreciated. that needs to be suspended, but we have faith in the british public people don't feel guilty after this morning with lots of about that. people helping their neighbours and that is very important, because encouraging people to get in touch people changing their attitudes can with those who have decided to stay at home it is be very, very difficult and there can be that feeling across all lovely to hear. oh faiths but if you are regular, my goodness, i nearly knocked over my it cup of
6:45 am
may be a social point as well, but tea! thatis may be a social point as well, but that is taken away from you, and i‘m trying to find rays of that is taken away from you, and that can hurt people. so we have sunshine for us this morning because we could to be sensitive to that as well. there all do with cheering up a is another element to this, touch. the weather will quieten down this week the incredible pastoral work that so and there will be some rain around many people in your line of work but in comparison to the weather we do, have seen so far this year, it to see people in the community at looks very promising indeed. not a bad home, for example, the recently start as you can see in bereaved. that is a hugely valuable north yorkshire this morning. a spell of service and in the coming weeks they very heavy rain through the night will be a second thought about and that is going to push whether it is wise, because you into the midlands, so it‘s not a beautiful could potentially be spreading the day for all of us, gradually virus. yes, and again, we have moving towards the london area and behind, a bigger role than just sunny spells and scattered showers, virus. yes, and again, we have a bigger role thanjust our worship on so the heaviest of the rain is sundays. as important as likely to be across parts of that is. it lincolnshire into the midlands and is pastoral and also practical work, down across the south coast. running food banks and community centres, at running food banks and community behind it, some sunny spells coming centres, et cetera. what we through, as we have seen, a have scattering of showers in the cloudy been asking churches is, think about how you may be able to sustain conditions for a time in scotland. it will turn increasingly windy with the function, but do it differently. so gales on exposed coasts and with the for some of our pastoral work, wind direction swing to a northerly, actually, maybe, we can do some of it‘s going to be quite cold that over the phone, over the internet, at this afternoon with temperatures that over the phone, over the internet, et cetera, in different struggling, 4—5. maybe we will see ways, still making sure that we are
6:46 am
double figures into that south—east keeping contact with people offering corner by the end of the day, that service, but not in but what is going to be interesting is any way jeopardising their health or those once the rain and the afternoon showers ease away, and they will do who are visiting. so we so, skies will clear and through the need to be night to make those temperatures are thinking really quite creatively likely to fall away quite sharply, here, but not lose sight of so be prepared for a bit of a shock our call role, which is both to provide to the system tomorrow morning. spiritual support but also to temperatures hovering around the freezing mark, just below in provide pastoral support and practical support in scotla nd freezing mark, just below in scotland and northern ireland, the our communities. gina, many blue colours denoting that there could be some frost around us well first thing in the morning but with thanks. fatherjohn, my grandpa, when he is those clear skies, that means not feeling tiptop and cannot get in there will be some lovely spells of us, he listens to sunshine. for much of the mass. so there are country, much of the day. the exception, the north west, a weather front moving options. and bringing rain into northern there are options, and we ireland, western fringes of scotland are putting out where people can watch as well as we go through the mass on the media, and that is afternoon and the temperatures here really important. will struggle at around here's louise with a look 80 degrees. at this morning's weather. further south, after a chilly stock good morning to you. good it will recover, 12—13 the expected high. as we move out morning, chris. i know everybody needs their spirits lifting. i am trying of monday into tuesday, the weather front sinks desperately but it sounds like there south and weakens all the time, so i is going to be some rain around. suspect there will be little more some dry weather cloud around. not that much of the
6:47 am
some dry is going to be some rain around. some dry weather in the forecast as we head into next week, so some way of rain, may be a few showers spring sunshine to look forward to for some of us. now, the rain is through parts of north wales and moving its way east. it has been northern england for a time. another pretty heavy, actually, through the weather front arrives later on in night. it's all tied into this area the day but tuesday, again, largely of low pressure, and behind us, as dry for most of us with more cloud this wind swings around to a around and monday may be but northerly, it will turn into some noticeably milder with temperatures showers and noticeably colder. some wet weather through lincolnshire, peaking at 15—16. that is slightly above where we should be for down through the midlands and the isle of wight yesterday, heading towards the london area by the end the time of year. high pressure still set to build for the latter stages of the afternoon. by the end of the working week. it moves of it, though, some decent breaks in the in from the north, so there is a cloud with them sunny spells coming through. a few isolated showers, potential maybe for some changes in most frequent up into the northern factor in that northerly wind and it the story and we could see some is going to feel noticeably colder. rain around england and wales on friday. a level of uncertainty about this at so in scotland, temperatures will the moment. you need to keep abreast struggle. four, five, maybe six of the forecast but generally degrees at the very best. the outlook remains the same, further south, perhaps not as warm as predominantly dry, mostly settled, getting a little bit cooler as we go yesterday, but double—digit still quite widely. now, that rain into next weekend but if this comes will think its way south and east, and off, not a bad weekend in then the skies will continue to prospect. back to you two. clear. temperatures are likely to fall away quite sharply through the night, so that is worth bearing in mind, that it is going to be a hurray for louise. dry, with some chilly start to our monday morning. sunshine. thank you. there‘s you can see on the temperature
6:48 am
profile the blue tones denoting been times when the weather forecast has temperatures around or just profile the blue tones denoting temperatures around orjust below freezing. so a cold start to our been the bleak bit enough monday morning. could even be waking programme and now it feels like up monday morning. could even be waking up to some early morning frost. so an oasis. especially considering some people gardeners and growers, take note. are going to have to stay at home that is something to bear in mind. are going to have to stay at home are not going on holiday. so tomorrow morning, then, we start it‘s nice off with some sparkling blue sky and to know british sunshine out there. after that mother could be chilly start, temperatures will brighter. recover. there is a weather front that's going to bring in some rain into northern ireland in western we‘ve been hearing from children scotla nd and their teachers this morning into northern ireland in western scotland by the end of the day, and about the importance of washing your hands to prevent hear the winds are likely to coronavirus from strengthen. top temperatures expected of 13 degrees. so recovering quite nicely in that spreading. sunshine. as we move out of take a look at this video. monday into tuesday, that weather front this little girl is dipping weekends and dies off, so it's not a finger going to bring that much in the way into salt—and—pepper without soap on it and of rain across england and wales. then she but another front that is going to feed into the north—west, almost in is doing the same location as monday's this. salt—and—pepper represent germs. she weather. there were little more is covering her cloud around potentially for the start of tuesday. bits and pieces of index finger with showery rain. by the end of soap. this is amazing. watch what the day, again, into western scotland and happens when she dips her finger northern ireland, we could start to into the salt—and—pepper. see some wet weather. but a good we heard deal of dry weather elsewhere. and warm with it, as the gasps inside the gallery. it shows
6:49 am
wind swings kids, doesn‘t it, that it around to a south—westerly. 15 degrees, that's not bad for works? if you put soap on your think it this time of year. now, towards the repels the germs and protects your fingers middle and latter stages of the so it‘s a nice trick you can week, with still got this show children. you could have been high—pressure building, quieting things down. but we just need to a give a close eye on the detail tomorrow‘s world presenter describing that. share across england and wales. maybe there could be a little bit of it with showery rain around, potentially on children, it‘s valuable friday. you could see that in the now. city forecast. but for many there is across the uk and around the world, a good deal of dry weather after churches and places of worship that mild spell through the middle are working out how best to keep people safe during a pandemic. pa rt that mild spell through the middle part of the week. things are getting a little bit colder into next in the last hour the vatican has announced that this year‘s easter weekend. back to you two. thank masses and services will take place you, louise. a little bit colder into next weekend. back to you two. thank you, louise. brighter days ahead. good without congregations. news. we'll be back with the our religion editor headlines at 7:00am. martin bashir has now it's time been taking a look at the impact for click. coronavirus is already having. easter sunday last year, and more than 100,000 pilgrims gather in rome. but the church of st peter, which for centuries has welcomed saints and sinners, is now closed. so, what of the catholic church

such a new cinematic way the possibility that for the first of experiencing a game. time in modern history, the second one, it handed us this year‘s open—air mass the gravity gun, we had much more will not take puzzling, much more place. martin bashir, storytelling. my god, we made it! bbc news. and it has almost become a kind you‘re watching ofjoke over the last 13 years breakfast from bbc news. of half—life 3 being announced, time now for because valve has always teased that something would come. a look there were lots of rumours, everybody wanted something new, at the but now finally, being told that we have got something in that newspapers. unsurprisingly the virus dominates universe, it's a whole the headlines. this is the sunday new full—length story. express reporting the over 705 could it's probably fair to say that a new half—life game will be one face a stay at home order as of the most keenly anticipated they put it to tackle the outbreak. the titles of the last decade. but is making it a virtual mirror newspaper lead to reality—only title a way the government plans, their headline is of shifting vr its war on the virus. more headsets? militaristic language cropping up on i mean, this is a way the front page of the to sell vr headsets. the minute you put a half—life game sunday telegraph. it leads with prime on vr, it's going to make people buy minister put industry on war footing something or potentially look into buying something they to equip the nhs for the battle ahead. over on the bbc website the hadn't most watched story is a video had on how before. we touch our faces and how to stop but it's notjust available it. you do it involuntarily quite on valve's headsets, it's available everywhere. so what this will do is potentially a lot, turning in a newspaper, biting
6:53 am
reinvigorate and kick—start your nails, but it‘s everybody‘s interest in the entire vr space. one of our goals here got to stop. was to hopefully show a bunch let‘s bring in the former police of people who looked at vr chief constable to look through the and thought it looks interesting inside pages and maybe even venture but not yet, it hadn't convinced them yet, to say oh, away from coronavirus which we there's an experience over they really want, have and hopefully they will see been struggling to do in this and say, "actually, our news i'll go check reporting this morning. we are that out." heading not far to this is the moment that sustainable sa lfo rd. i've been waiting for. it's been 16 years since half—life 2 heading not far to sustainable salford. the observer was released and 13 years newspaper. since we've had isn‘t it great news that the people any new half—life who have lived most of their lives content. in the north west, they will know right now, i'm going to try out the latest game in the series in that salford has virtual a gritty reputation reality. and of course it‘s also the place where, if i'm playing using valve's own vr hardware, called index. the controllers features sensors i can which translate my hand and mention coronation street, it‘s where it is, and here finger it is. movements. it has won the this will allow me to interact with the game world in much the same green local way as i would in the real world. authority in britain award. i‘m a lwa ys authority in britain award. i‘m always a sucker for black and white here we've got an opportunity to try photographs. i don‘t know whether
6:54 am
out some of the gameplay mechanics, the camera can see so we have the gravity gloves, it. handed to me which should allow me to pull and i‘ll wave it at the camera. salford is a dirty old town. it is this... ..and grab it. and throw it towards one of those barnacles. a let the barnacle eat it. dirty old town but not any when you see items, you can grab them with the gravity gloves, more. and you can see there the catch them, store them in your backpack for later. playing on the the title has been designed to work street and that photograph is taken with a wide variety of different vr of the year of my headsets but the game's demanding technical specifications means birth, 1957, and that it will have to thatis of the year of my birth, 1957, and that is how people in the northwest run will have seen on a pretty high—end pc. salford. it‘s got the full index vr set—up media city uk, it‘s got the imperial like this one isn't cheap, war museum, either, costing media city uk, it‘s got the imperial warmuseum, and to media city uk, it‘s got the imperial war museum, and to get an accolade like that... how nearly £1,000. is it sustainable? can't open these doors — they're jammed. ah, that opens up sorry to be for me. momentarily sceptical? here we well, of course, newspaperstories go. like that encourage you to almost everything you interact with in the game works like it does do more research, don‘t they, chris? ithink in the real world — everything apart from travel. nina and! research, don‘t they, chris? ithink nina and i werejust getting around turns out research, don‘t they, chris? ithink nina and i were just having research, don‘t they, chris? ithink nina and i werejust having a research, don‘t they, chris? ithink nina and i were just having a chat to be one off—camera and of the more interesting things stockton—on—tees for in virtual reality. it's one of the trickier example is the worst local authority problems to solve. in so many things that are local for being green but of
6:55 am
scale allow you to just course, in use your body in the north—east, stockton is quite a a natural way, powerhouse when it like, i'm going to pick comes to old up a bucket industry, so the local authority to look at what's underneath it. they have said in their traversing space doesn't quite yet allow you to use your body in that way. there are a couple of different defence they are still producing an awful lot styles of teleportation and then of a more traditional movement the countries wealth, so it is that is — we call continuous motion. a lwa ys the countries wealth, so it is always at this balance, isn‘t it? and some people are look at us, we are green, but what more comfortable with one than are you producing? i think what another. salford a re this is genuinely extremely tense. are you producing? i think what argh! salford are producing is new technology. it does have an industrial heritage and salford as ok, well, i need new underwear. well, but they say they are building this adds an entirely new dimension to video game combat — more energy efficient homes, lower one of absolute pant—wetting fear. we'll find out what kind of impact than average co2 emissions and high half life: alyx has when it releases recycling rates, sell a variety on march of things. that is spot on. i 23. sometimes do get really quite cross when you we're all being told see houses being built, some of the big housing companies that the best way to combat now, one in the coronavirus particular i won‘t mention them, but i‘ve done the calculation of the is by washing our hands thoroughly topline and do you know how much profit they make out of every single with soap and one of their houses and they‘re not water. but when we can't get to a basin, very good, by the
6:56 am
many of us are also using way, £66,000? last alcohol—based hand sanitiser. so much so that supplies year it was £65,000. have been running low. one company we met in taiwan if you actually last year hopes to have found calculate their gross profit with a number of houses they are building, the that so much profit. they don‘t solution. even put decent security in those this is the eleclean, a device that is claimed houses. ican to create put decent security in those houses. i can confirm because i bought a new build in salford about 15 years your own ago and our energy bills were next to nothing so i can concur. 15 disinfectant. years ago before any of this. do you ever turn the lights on? laughter iama bit laughter i am a bit tight excavation mock from urban to rural, and a story about sheep in the sunday telegraph. i like stories like this. clearly you‘re a bit sceptical. i‘m not at hopefully that will do the trick. all. that‘s just his the company does expect that face. i you‘re a bit sceptical. i‘m not at all. that‘sjust his face. i can‘t help it. i‘m not allowed to touch this protects against the it. you want coronavirus. the issue is, they have to enter it actually sold out of them. into a but it's notjust about competition. anyway,
6:57 am
keeping our hands clean. how about our devices? so we this week, apple issued new advice have about how to keep our phones clean sheepin but i would suggest that you don't competition. anyway, so we have sheep in leicestershire, the last farming family in the do anything until you've heard what chris fox village, and the mother died last year so they has to say. have been petitioning for there to with the growing concern around bea coronavirus, i thought i would be have been petitioning for there to better safe than sorry be a sheep memorial and there are and smothered my phone with strict rules about this in the church of england. anyway, they‘ve antiviral had to go to the district court and gel. it‘s been approved. had to go to the district court and but it turns out that it's been approved. ok. it's because some hand gels they had a powerful argument that and sanitisers can they had a powerful argument that actually damage the sheep is a the oliophobic, oil—repelling layer on your phone screen which is supposed to keep fingerprints off. so check this out. sign of the christian if i put my phone next one that has the layer intact, you can see that this one looks faith. anyway, because they put so like i've been eating pizza off it. much thought into it and it was to it's covered in fingerprint and oil. this one does have some represent the family, the courts fingerprints on it still, allowed to go ahead. but not nearly as many. it is a and now, if i wipe down this phone with a microfibre cloth, religious representation in some ways, isn‘t it? a quick the fingerprints come off super easy. and if i try reference to this one, rotting trains. again, some of the oil it's one of comes off those stories which begs more but you can see it is questions than answers, still really smeary. but i didn‘t and as a final test, if i pop my fingerprints on there... realise, only 40% of
6:58 am
you can see that this our railway is absolutely lines are electrified. 60% you have gross and this one got to run not diesel. all of nearly as dirty. so how can you clean your phone these without damaging it? trains here are electric trains and well, this week, i met they are just sat with microbiologist dr lena ciric and she told me how. you don't actually need to use there melting antibacterial or antiviral products away. instead of on your phone, you can just use being used they simple soap and water. unplug your phone, turn it off can‘t be used because only 40% of and remove the case. railway lines dampen a microfibre cloth with water and simple household soap. are electric. gently rub the surfaces of the phone so, when with the damp cloth. i was working, i was forever up and take care not to get moisture in any down to london and of the openings because even water often no seats. resistant phones lose their protection over time. so you can see finally, dry your phone that something needs with a clean to happen. you just want microfibre cloth. somebody to get a we haven't used any anti—bacterial to happen. you just want somebody to geta grip to happen. you just want somebody to get a grip and just get the entire or antiviral gel on this phone system working because we have just had in the north so how west, the northern do we experience, and a couple of times i was coming down to the radio here know they and got down to the railway are clean? and they we re and got down to the railway and they were just cancelled. well, we can use these swabs and this device which tells us the level of microbial activity
6:59 am
on the phone in relative light thank you very much. 20 billion each units or rlus. so the higher number we get, year spent on infrastructure. the higher number of germs. the results are pretty good. nice to see you. so we would want a surgical surface to be a reading of 50 or less coming up we and all of the phones have readings of less than this, will be speaking to the organisation that so that's pretty good. represents british retailers about so they're significantly cleaner, with just soap and water? panic buying, supplies and yep, restocking empty shelves. they stay with are. us, the and how is that possible without using antiviral gel? what's going on here? headlines the main ingredient in soap, which is a detergent, coming which is basically lifting off the grease and the grime up... and the germs from the surface of the phone, which is then rinsed off with water and that's what makes it clean. there are a few other ways you can clean your phone safely. this week, apple changed its guidance and said if you have an iphone, you can safely wipe it with a 70% isopropyl alcohol wipe — the kind you can get from a computer shop, or online if they haven't sold out. there are also devices that can sterilise your phone using ultraviolet uv—c radiation. this one's called phonesoap. it costs about £80 — although there are cheaper ones available — and what you do is pop your phone inside and let it cook for about ten minutes.
7:00 am
the manufacturer says it shouldn't harm your device but some phones or cases could be discoloured over time. finally, what can you do if, like me, you have stripped the oil—repelling coating off your phone's screen? well, there are some ways to fix it. first of all, you can get a screen replacement, although that is not going to be the cheapest option. or you could stick on one of those glass screen protectors, which is a quick and easy way to fix the screen. or you can try this, it's called liquidnano and this wipe puts a silica dioxide coating over the display which says it will restore the oliophobic properties for 12 months. it cost between £20 and £30 and you have to let it set on the phone for at least half an hour. so i tried it out on the phone i ruined and i have to say it seems to have hello, this is breakfast, done a pretty good with chris mason and nina warhurst. it's 8:33. job! here‘s a summary of this so that's one solution morning‘s main news... to what could have been the government says it will soon be an stepping up measures to protect expensive people from coronavirus, including shielding elderly and vulnerable people. mistake. ministers have so far stopped short just remember that if you do clean your phone, as soon of introducing some of the strict as you touch it, you're putting controls that have been imposed in mainland europe. germs back on it again and the most it comes as the number of people

7:02 am
which is are working on the basis of now the the evidence. and secondly, they are seeking to explain in public, second worst affected not just what needs to happen now, but what we can anticipate in europe. is going to be the developing response, as this i will be talking about grassroots sport, which is going ahead at epidemic develops. the point about football clu bs the difference between what's going sport, which is going ahead at football clubs like this one in on in the uk and what's greater manchester, with most going on in professional and elite sports either other european countries is that, of postponed or course, in italy, cancelled. good most obviously, morning. heavy rain for some will the epidemic is significantly more ease away to an afternoon of sunny developed, it has been going on longer than it has here. and so the spells and blustery showers. i'll have all the details coming up response is correctly different in italy from what it is here. the key very shortly. thing is to work on the basis of the it's sunday, the 15th of march. evidence. and i am our top story: the government says it will soon be stepping up measures very pleased that to protect people from coronavirus, yesterday chris whitty, the chief including shielding elderly and medical officer, committed to vulnerable publishing all of that evidence, so that we can see the basis on which people. government decisions are being so far, ministers have stopped short made. let‘s talk about the state of of introducing some of the strict preparedness within the nhs given controls that have been imposed in mainland europe. your area of expertise. a it comes as the number of people known to have died from the virus new assessment, how prepared is the nhs
7:03 am
in the uk has reached 21. when it comes to, for instance, the sophie hutchinson number of beds in has the latest intensive care, the number of ventilators? we have developments. seen this morning that the is the number of cases and government wants to hugely step up deaths the manufacture from the coronavirus rise sharply, pressure is building on the government to do more to tackle the of ventilators. outbreak. the virus attacks the tissue well, if the question is, and airways deep inside the lungs, and ministers are highlighting plans did the for more life—saving ventilators nhs anticipate the coronavirus to be epidemic at the beginning of this year, or in december last year, the manufactured as answer to that of course is no, quickly as how could it have done? but what possible. it has also said the nhs will buy up it does haveis could it have done? but what it does have is a series of plans prepared beds in private hospitals to deal with to boost capacity. but there has been strong criticism health emergencies as of the government's strategy. they arrive. the health service, hundreds of scientists have written, although it is a vast organisation, urging ministers to introduce tougher measures to stop it is actually the virus spreading, and warning of the risks quite flexible. when of a lack of action. and other experts agree. there is an increase in urgent or it is thought the government may now ban mass gatherings next week, emergency demand upon the health and its scientific advisors have service, routinely what it does is said measures to protect the sick and elderly and to isolate whole to give those patients priority, families will be needed soon. as we would expect it to but the government's main message do, as remains for anyone with a cough citizens, and ask other people with or fever to stay at home, and for everyone to ensure less urgent conditions to thorough hand wait. the health service doesn't have massive
7:04 am
washing. spare capacity waiting for our political correspondent nick eardleyjoins us these from our patients, but it does have the capacity to change what it does each london newsroom. day to respond to the changing good morning, nick. some reports in demands of the population. as the newspapers this you have said, this virus has morning, extreme measures are planned, asking the capacity to overwhelm any health service anywhere in the world, if over—70s to stay at home? there is a particular spike in cases measures are planned, asking over-70s to stay at home? good morning. i think there are certainly over a concentrated period of time. more measures on the way. the but in your view, is the government has a group that advises nhs as well prepared or better prepared than it on the science when it other health services around the comes to world, as people seek reassurance as emergencies. it is already saying that the next stage of its plan is to whether or not we are as prepared as we can be? likely to come in pretty soon. that will mean a couple of to pick up your last things. it will mean a couple of things. it point, i think we are as prepared will mean a couple of things. it will mean households isolating together. that means at the moment, as we can be. comparing our response if one of us get symptoms, we have to other people, i am not sure that to stay at home for seven days. gets us very far. what i think we this would mean if somebody in your must do is to household, a member of yourfamily focus on our response. ora household, a member of yourfamily or a flatmate, if they get symptoms you will all have to stay in the government is seeking to delay for a period of time. the other thing is that the shielding of vulnerable and depress the total peak demand on people, we don't really know what the health service, and then to that means yet, but it is likely to spread it, notjust
7:05 am
mean that those in at risk through the health service, and then to spread it, not just through the categories like older people are emergency services that are always available within the health service, going to be asked to stay at home but also to increase capacity, for a period of time. it is to be by bringing in the private sector as seen how long exactly that is. i well. i think people mean, as you heard in the piece would expect, there, there has been some criticism in the circumstances, all the of the government's strategy, some country's health facilities to be people saying it needs to be clear made available to meet this about why it is taking it is. peak demand. so, i think it is a question i think you will start to see of spreading the peak and making more evidence published in the next few certain that within the health care days of exactly why the government syste m certain that within the health care system and across the is doing what it is, and we are whole country, going to hearfrom health we use the facilities available to is doing what it is, and we are going to hear from health secretary matt hancock in a couple of hours. us as flexibly as he will be on the andrew marr possible. let's show, talk about communication and how the but also writing in the telegraph government and public health this morning, really interesting, again, he is talking about officials talk to us as a a blitz spirit, comparing this to the second population. does that need to be clearer? or do we need to be world war and saying everybody will hearing from, say, the prime minister or have to make sacrifices over the next few months, an indication of a senior minister, and the how seriously is taking this. absolutely. nick, many chief medical officers, every day at the moment for thanks. let's bring you up—to—date on the instance? implications for medical officers, every day at the moment for instance ?|j trouble. —— medical officers, every day at the moment for instance? i think the answer to that probably is yes, travel. actually. what i think easyjet has joined jet2
7:06 am
in cancelling flights to spain. the airline announced it would be we have seen suspending all flights from tuesday. ona actually. what i think we have seen on a regular basis, and it comes as the world's biggest carrier, american airlines, has announced its suspending nearly it is all of its long—haul clearly the regularity is increasing, and i think that flights from monday. the white house has announced that donald trump has tested negative is right, isa for coronavirus, hours after the us increasing, and i think that is right, is a commitment... as i said extended its travel ban at the beginning, to work on the to britain and ireland. basis of the science, a commitment the ban will come into force early on tuesday morning uk time, yesterday to publish the science, as jane o'brien reports. which is very welcome and the message from the white house: necessary, and then to don't come to america. the european travel ban ordered by trump on wednesday has now been explain why the extended to the uk and ireland. government is taking the decisions the president has made a decision to suspend all travel that it government is taking the decisions thatitis government is taking the decisions that it is taking now, and also, to the united kingdom and ireland effectively at midnight, monday night, importantly, i think, that it is taking now, and also, importantly, ithink, looking that it is taking now, and also, importantly, i think, looking ahead, so that we have some idea what is eastern standard likely to be the response in a week time. there is a new sense or month's time. as the chief of urgency in the us, which compared to other countries medical officer said about a week was slow to respond to the virus. ago, the right response needs to be notjust the lawmakers have passed legislation ago, the right response needs to be not just the right ago, the right response needs to be notjust the right response, but the making tests free for everyone. right response at the right time, and something that is right in but because of the shortage of kits, it's not known how far the virus a fortnight's time might not be right has already now. that needs explaining to the spread. public. have we seen anything like for donald trump, it this in your lifetime, in has become personal. terms of

7:21 am
shop and you realise that everybody the night, and has bought everything up, it does with lighter winds and clearing set in that maybe i skies, temperatures will fall away. that could be a shock to the system should do the when you step out first thing same. and unfortunately it has a knock on effect. if people just tomorrow morning. we could actually shopped normally, it would be fine. be stepping up to a frost, something we have not seen for a while. and is it right that you have been told worth bearing in mind if you are a you can't walk your dog? gardener at this time of year, yes, what it is is they have that could have an impact. frosty said... the starting monday, but some sparkling message that has come through now is spring some time to look forward to you can actually take your dog out, for many of us. it will remain like but it has got to be that throughout the day. yes, short walks, another weather front bringing some and you can't mingle with anybody else while you are out. so you can't rain into northern ireland and the west of scotland by the end of the go for lovely long strolls like you afternoon, but also temperatures normally do up the mountains. we are recovering. highs between ten and now restricted to just a short one 30 degrees. we match the into for him to do his business and then double figures in the far north. the back indoors. how are weather front moves south but it people reacting to the news? are people will weaken considerably. on tuesday, there could be more cloud stoical, are people irritated by the sense of the around, perhaps the odd spot of restrictions? i just wonder irritated by the sense of the restrictions? ijust wonder how it showery rain through northern is all going england and wales, as it marches down? i think out. not too bad. eventually by the here, end of the day we will see more wet general consensus from our neighbours across the road and weather pushing into northern everything is it is a good thing. ireland and scotland, but for the spanish government and president many, has acted very quickly. he another dry story, and another mild
