Sorry, I simply cannot go with that.
It’s really not difficult.
- I’m a sensible person. I. could quite safely go for a drive on the empty roads here in France to the airfield and go flying. What would be the risk?
- My neighbour, locked in upstairs, is a sensible and highly educated man. He could quite safely go for his normal Sunday run by the river. What would be the risk?
- The teenage boy, miserably locked in next door, is an intelligent kid and he could quite easily go rowing on the river as he used to. What would be the risk?
- The professional football player who lives just across the courtyard from me could quite safely go and do her fitness training in the park. She’s sensible and understands social distancing, so what would be the risk?
And if we all did it, what would be the difference from how things were before we were told to stay indoors to avoid killing people? The TV reports are filled with reports from hospitals in Italy, and increasingly in parts of France, and the situation in them is beyond horrendous. It’s perhaps not like that yet in the UK, and I hope it doesn’t become so. Maybe accepting a period of frustrating isolation, when we aren’t allowed to do things that any of us, individually, could do quite safely will prevent some of us, and particularly our older relatives and friends, for:dying prematurely and alone?
