The news that Beijing is having a spike, closing airports etc, after complete return to normality, is frightening.

Apparently the reason is the meat markets.

It is proof to us that when we get back to normality we mustn’t lift our protection too much to quickly, and that social distance is important.

Cleanliness is paramount and I expect after this lockdown our standards are naturally lifted.

The discovery of a common drug, been around for years, it’s called mexamethasone might well be our salvation.

It’s not used generally but on cases caused by the pandemic.

The rest of us will probably have to wait for a general antidote which always seems to be just around the corner. Ah well we will just have to wait.
