Laurence Fox said the virus is in your mind – but he didn’t imagine these takedowns
That well-known and highly respected virologist, Laurence Fox, has set all our minds to rest with some reassuring words on Covid-19.
What a relief to know that nobody died or developed a long-term illness, because the virus was just in our minds all along.
You can probably imagine the reactions, but you don’t need to. Here they are.

Sorry luv, the virus is mainly in your upper body. Wherever you got that 'science' degree from needs to give you a full refund and a public apology.

Ah, so a 100+ people a day have been dying because of their mental attitude. Or have the rest of us only imagined or friends, relatives and colleagues have died.

One parody account came to this logical conclusion.
Car crashes are in your mind.
The most effective treatments are a walnut whip, the concept of pessimism and blue nail varnish.
