Scientists are now warning that opening schools in September could cause a surge in coronavirus infections, spreading the disease throughout the whole country.
I actually said that on these very pages some considerable time ago.
Does that mean I know more about virology than these government scientists?
I don't think so. My prediction many weeks ago and their prediction today fall under the category of "the absolutely bleeding obvious".
The kids will go back to school. A great many of them will become infected but not seriously affected and will cheerily spread the disease throughout their families, friends and neighbours at home who will, of course, spread it to others.
And it will all happen just in time for winter - quite possibly coronavirus's favourite season of the year.
To me, it seems likely that coronavirus thrives in cold conditions and that means Britain is going to have one hell of a Christmas - and I don't use the word "hell" in a positive sense.
We're doomed, I tell you - doomed!
