Those of a certain vintage remember where they were when they heard John F Kennedy had been assassinated. Likewise, the attack on the Twin Towers in New York provoked images of catastrophe which lives on in the minds of a later generation.

It is obviously not on the same scale but the announcement that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was rushed to an intensive care unit is an event which also stopped many in their tracks. It will remain in the memory banks of those who, in whatever guise, are facing down Covid-19.
