Re: Covid-19: What has happened to clinical acumen?

Dear Editor
Do the majority of practising doctors seriously believe that asymptomatic, healthy individuals need to stay six feet apart and cover their faces in order to avoid spreading a life-threatening disease, which they don't have, to other healthy individuals?
If so, whatever happened to clinical acumen?
If not, why are they colluding with the narrative?
