Re: Covid-19: Physical distancing of at least one metre, and other matters

Dear Editor
1. I deeply regret having been critical of the Govt.
Only now have I realised that no one really knows what precautions are most effective. Not even the WHO.
2. I now understand how sensible it would be, if instead of criticising the Prime Minister, we were to say:
We are the best in the world.
Thanks to our Prime Minister.
This roar of the British Lion will make the world aware :
that Britain is open for business.
