    The UK is not yet ‘on top’ of the coronavirus pandemic but the Covid-19 vaccines are ‘winning the battle’, an expert has said in a statement issued on Tuesday. 

    Professor Anthony Harnden, deputy chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), said the UK is making ‘really good progress’ but urged people ‘not to throw it all away’ and to get a booster jab when invited to do so. 

    The DC Extended Universe (DCEU) movie is being filmed at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire, and is slated for release in December 2022.

    When asked by Ellen why he keeps getting injured during filming, he pointed to his enthusiasm as the main cause.
