    Here's a really good article by someone who really knows his stuff. It's an eye opener, but obvious when you think about it.
    Very basically, it says that you need to ingest a certain amount of virus to catch the disease, and that amount is dependent on the amount of virus you are exposing yourself to, and the amount of time you are exposed.
    Everything is based on that.

    Follow that and you'll not go wrong.

    You are right , a very interesting article, from another perspective.
    Three things really jump out , the "recovery to normality" the horrendous continued projected deaths, even though the R rate is dropping and cases decline ..
    The classic , if the lockdown continues and "open up and all bets are off"
    This is a World classic, "if you don,t solve the biology, the economy won,t recover"

    Best get out while you can on the bike Fred , think this is going to be the shortest lifting of restrictions ever .
    I am going to tax a bike tomorrow, and probably Sorn it , end of the month, I have not ridden a bike since last October , all insured , all road legal.
    WET, wet ,wet from end of September here, monsoon ended 20th March. shutdown started 22.3.2020.

    Fantastic news this , I took a gamble doing mine and it looks like it's paying off for others .
    You'll be going back out for oil tomorrow then ... The even longer way round 😁

    We are out of Lockdown here in little old New Zealand. My son and I went for our first ride yesterday (me on my BN600 and him on his little R3) 260km. So many bikes out yesterday. Pubs open this Thursday. Some Restaurants are open, You can't have groups bigger than 10, and we can see family and friends now but have to stay 2 metres away from anyone we don't know. We have had no new cases of the virus for 3 days.
