    And as the school closed within a couple of days of opening it's unlikely the one infected person caught Covid in the school. According to WHO website "the time between exposure to the virus (becoming infected) and symptom onset, is on average 5-6 days,".

    It was all so predictable.

    French lady on news was saying that France has a real issue now that the infections are getting to old folk and the hospitals are filling up again. Nationwide lockdown in France soon I think.

    I understand that governments are trying to get the economy open. I do not understand why anyone thinks that anything is going to change until a vaccine is injected into the arms of everyone and that could be years.

    Mass unemployment, empty city centres and the end of mass cheap flights are with us now.
