"I'm done with the coronavirus. Over it," I heard this week. "Why do I have to wait till August 10 to go on the piss. That's so unfair."

It makes me laugh. "OK would you like me to make a few calls? I don't think the virus knows you're done. Obviously the rest of us are totally cool with Covid. We should send a memo."

I can understand why young people want to get amongst it. For many, the virus has wreaked havoc on their social life.
