*“There is little evidence to link Covid-19 to eyesight problems, the Royal College of Ophthalmologists and Moorfields Eye Hospital have said.
Downing Street aide Dominic Cummings said on Monday that he drove to Barnard Castle with his wife and child in order to test his eyesight before making the drive back home to London.
He was backed up by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who suggested he too had suffered problems with his vision after contracting coronavirus.
Mr Johnson told the daily Downing Street briefing on Monday: "I'm finding I have to wear spectacles for the first time in years, I think because of the effects of this thing.“*

He should have skipped the eye part, said sorry, and it would have all blown over by now.

Have they said whether castle spotting is being added to the standard eye test?

Might roll in later. ;)

I’m sure I’ve heard Gove said his eyes were affected too, so wonder if being in gov makes one susceptible.
