Here's hoping the Hiqa update on kids and the virus might bring some common-sense clarity to reopening schools. New research by the health watchdog found children were not significant contributors to the spread of Covid, at home or at school. It chimes with some earlier international evidence that kids are mostly - mercifully - being spared from this disease.
Are you surviving the lockdown - by getting locked? Sorry if that sounds facetious at such a serious time, but it seems fairly clear most people are drinking their way through this existential crisis. Let's be honest: it's our national coping strategy.
