Young people look beyond coronavirus lockdown | A New Normal

In this week’s episode of A New Normal, the Guardian journalist Iman Amrani speaks to young people about how they are coping with lockdown and the impact it has had on their lives, looking particularly at education, universities and mental health. She speaks to four young people from across the country, two of whom are about to start university courses and two of whom are about to finish theirs, and asks them about the future.
