Even a dragon does not protect against COVID. In turn, Game Of Thrones is directly affected by the pandemic. The spin-off House of the dragon was forced to stop production yesterday.
According to Deadline, HBO has announced that filming, currently underway in the UK, has been temporarily halted due to a crew member testing positive for COVID-19. It was already the case of The Bridgertons Chronicle a few days ago, also across the Channel.
