Over 70s stay at home, Queen self-isolating in Windsor Castle, you only die if you’ve got underlying health problems (who hasn’t?), virus will only last for a year, 80 per cent expected to be infected but only 15 per cent hospitalised, sorry for a decade of underfunding for hospital beds and respirators, doctors pressured to treat patients without proper protection (“It’s like we are being sent out to die”), and an economy post-Brexit plunged into recession plus global recession this summer.
