It is 100 days since the first coronavirus case was diagnosed in the UK, and in Lydgate Hall Crescent – a quiet street in suburban Sheffield – there is not a household that has been left unaffected.

Here, in this little 40-home road – so English it has a green at one end and a pub bordering the other – Covid-19 has taken no lives and, so far it seems, no jobs.

No one has been diagnosed with the bug.
