Covid-19 made an abrupt return to our lives on our morning ward round. We had set off to check up on our neurosurgery patients in Beaumont's high-dependency and intensive-care units.

Usually we have two or three patients recovering there after brain procedures. We make our way there almost on autopilot at this stage. On this morning two weeks ago, our brisk march through the corridors came to an abrupt halt outside the room where our patient had been the day before.
