I found you post full of misinformed nonsense but I'm sick of refuting such posts. But the above timescale is wrong, it's four weeks and we've yet to see if the restrictions have had the intended effect.
I don't know where you're finding your information, perhaps you would share, but if indeed it is four weeks for incubation-to-death then we are in a far better position than I suggested, as it means that the incidence of people catching a fatal dose was dropping more than a week before we entered 'lockdown'.
My source for incubation period is from travellers from Wuhan https://www.worldometers.info/coronavir ... on-period/ which admittedly is a few minutes closer to six days than to seven; and first symptom to death is 14 days is here https://www.worldometers.info/coronavir ... rate/#days.
You might get stoned out of a pub if (1) you could find an open one, and (2) there were enough people gathered there against the regulations to stone you! It doesn't alter the fact that cycle touring is a form of exercise and therefore not prohibited by the regulations. A bunch of locals sitting in a pub *is* prohibited.
And finally this all misses the point that those of us who are fit all need to be exposed to the disease. Locked-down rural communities are going to be a source of infection for months to come when the big cities are long over it.
