the main stories… …and how they were covered

What happened The march of Covid-19 The death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in China rose above 1,100 this week, surpassing in just two months the 774 fatalities caused by the eight-month Sars outbreak of 2002-03. On Monday, more than 100 people died in Hubei province alone; there are now more than 44,000 confirmed cases across the country. The spread of the disease, which the World Health Organisation has officially named Covid-19, has fuelled domestic criticism of Beijing’s handling of the crisis. There was a particular outpouring of grief and anger in China last week when Li Wenliang – the 33-year-old doctor who was arrested for spreading “false rumours” after he alerted colleagues to the outbreak – himself succumbed to the disease. As of Wednesday, Covid-19 had caused two deaths outside mainland China…

Brexit has been cancelled. Not the historic act of self-harm/longed-for reclamation of national sovereignty (delete according to taste), but the word. It was rumoured last year that the Government would ban the term after the withdrawal bill passed. And it has. A memo sent to Foreign Office staff last week began: “Brexit is completed. So do not use the term ‘Brexit’, save as a historical event that took place on 31 January 2020.” Other departments received similar notes. The Department for Exiting the European Union has ceased to exist; leading the effort now is a new team, Taskforce Europe, with a non-exity title. This week the Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom, quizzed about the effect of Brexit on Nissan, replied: “We never use that word any more. That was something that…

Controversy of the week Sinn Féin’s shock victory We’ve grown used to the sight of populist insurgent parties “embarrassing the establishment”, said Ross Clark in The Sun. Even so, Sinn Féin’s victory in last weekend’s general election in Ireland came as a huge surprise. Irish voters had for decades given a wide berth to a party that unashamedly presented itself as the political wing of the Provisional IRA, even as the Provos carried out their “murderous sprees” in Northern Ireland and mainland Britain. Yet on Saturday, exceeding all predictions, Sinn Féin gave a bloody nose to the two centrist parties that have shared power in Dublin since 1921 by winning the largest share of the vote (24.5%). Fianna Fáil received 22.2%; Leo Varadkar’s Fine Gael, in government since 2011, trailed in third…

People have been decorating their homes with fake plastic plants for years; now, gardeners are increasingly opting for them too, reports The Sunday Times. Among the most popular fake outdoor plants are hedges made of spun polyester “leaves”. Their attraction, say retailers, is that they take no time to grow; remain verdant all year; and don’t need pruning. “Minimal maintenance is key,” said Vincent Vity of Just Artificial, a fake foliage “nursery” in Morecambe. The first state school with boarding facilities for children as young as four is opening in Norfolk, to cater to the growing demand from two-parent working families. Wymondham College Prep School will charge £11,000 a year for accommodation and food.…

Personal dignity, after doctors launched a “down with the gown” campaign, urging NHS hospitals to stop asking patients to wear backless robes that leave their bottoms and upper thighs exposed. Professor David Oliver said the gowns, which tie at the back, are often issued for no good reason, and leave patients feeling vulnerable, embarrassed and cold. Friends fans, with rumours that the six stars of the still popular 1990s sitcom have agreed to reunite for an hour-long special. Reportedly, they will each be paid between $3m and $4m.
