I have been thinking about the story of Neil Ferguson, the Imperial College epidemiologist who became known as Prof Lockdown.
I feel sorry for Ferguson. I doubt he wanted to be in the public eye. The attention this pandemic has given him had already required that he rather publicly admit to what he thought to be an error in his work, which he corrected because he thought it in the public interest to do so.
Now he’s been caught out taking about as much risk as I do every time I go to Tesco and been pilloried for it.
