I can see from your dozen or so posts in the last couple of days that you feel strongly about this, Mako. And undoubtedly joggers who loom up on people unexpectedly are idiots. But on my run today I saw other runners keeping a respectful distance and there was plenty of room for everyone. (And yes, I ran in the road most of the way to Peckham Rye and then ran on the grass once there to keep a safe distance from passers-by on the path.) So we're not all dangerous idiots and I strongly disagree with some of the people on this thread who seem to be calling for all runners to stay at home.
Staying fit is one of the key ways to reduce your risk of ending up in intensive care with coronavirus (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52076856) and the benefits of running to your mental health are well known. Also the risk of catching coronavirus from someone whizzing past you at speed is 'extremely small', according to experts. Interesting article here: [www.theguardian.com
Of course there are some runners who are not careful and they should be called out but please do not tar us all with the same brush!
