    “If one person goes down with coronavirus, then everyone on set has to quarantine, the whole production is thrown into jeopardy and it’s a massive risk for small companies to take,” a source told The Mirror.

    “We are hoping that the government and big broadcasters will step up and carry some of that risk. We can’t physically do it without insurance”.
