Exactly, Tonker. If you can breathe in those delicate fragrant aromas from far and wide, then you can breathe in anything else floating around in the air.
Thing is, if you're immune, you're immune. If you're not, then you're not. If you've had no symptoms since March then you're unlikely to catch the virus as it's been in the atmosphere since well before then.
I don't understand why people don't realise that it's airborne and hangs there like droplets from an aerosol that you can't see, and a mask or visor is no protection. It's in their homes, cars, shops etc.
There's been too much propaganda and brainwashing over this, and people now need to use their common sense, because those who live in fear, will remain in fear, and this situation has been blown way out of proportion.
I've already said elsewhere that I'm claustrophobic, and if something is put over my face I would panic, but I'm also agoraphobic so I can't be somewhere over-crowded unless I know exactly where an escape route is. When I used to dance, I/we would have to be on the edge of the dance floor, and never in the middle of other dancers and that's why when I go to the shop, I only go at night at around 8.30 p.m. to make sure there are no crowds, but that's because of my condition, not the virus.
Anyway, considering there have been billions of viruses in our atmosphere for the last few million years, human development has become immune to most, except for a few, like the common cold, cold sores on the lips (herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1)), and the good old common or garden 'flu. I've not had a cold for the last six years, I last had a cold sore about 12 years ago, and I've had 'flu three times in my life which lasted no more than two days, but I didn't have to isolate for any of those, but I've been classed as vulnerable, simply because of my age, and I've been furloughed from work since the end of March and it wasn't necessary, not just for me, but thousands of others who have lost their jobs because Government panicked without being appraised of the true information.
Ah well. People will blindly accept what they're told without using logic, so it's not really their fault.
