Respect to these virologists, talk about complicated science!
I watched one of them on the TV this week, he had been using a computer required to map out the DNA sequencing of the virus. It looked it could fill an old engineers Godfrey Siddons Geometry book. Talk about Einstein stuff!
Your son would definitely get into MENSA with ease!
I saw a picture of a packed London Tube Train today and the commuters were enclosed in a confined space, all packed in and they looked so vulnerable.
I mentioned on another thread about future civil defence type initiatives/preparedness akin to old WW2 issuing of gas masks to everyone. I bet if those communicators were offered a surgical standard masks and gloves everyone would have taken what was offered.
