The Nonsense of the 1.5 Metre Rule By Brian Simpson

     We are still supposed to keep to the 1.5 metre distance rule, which is 2 metres overseas in most places. It is absurd, and as useless as teats on a bull.

“The two-metre rule has no basis in science, leading scientists have said as the Government comes under increasing pressure to drop the measure. Writing for The Telegraph, Professors Carl Heneghan and Tom Jefferson, from the University of Oxford, said there is little evidence to support the restriction and called for an end to the "formalised rules". The University of Dundee also said there was no indication that distancing at two metres is safer than one metre. The intervention comes as two Government ministers suggested on Monday that the rule is likely to be relaxed following a review commissioned by Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister.”

     That is all I could get for free without signing up and reviewing my secret identity as Brian Simpson, mild mannered high school science teacher, but you get the message. Hell, my sneezes carry right across the room, and if I put my hand over my mouth and sneeze into it, the goo simply bounces off my hand ricocheting around the room at the speed of infection. It is not really practical to carry a bucket around with me everywhere.
