The difference is exercise. We should take exercise (walking, running, cycling) to keep ourselves physically fit and healthy and be able to better cope with the virus should we suffer.
You might just get some effect in a few months, but there's a massive effect in the long term. And a surprisingly small amount of walking delivers quite a lot of the benefit. Great chance to get into the habit.
Seen one report that bike shop sales were up last week.
PS: And local air pollution and local noise pollution and global pollution and the small risk of needing an emergency service...
Why cannot people just follow the guidelines set by the government as opposed to looking for loop holes. This is not tax legislation and the guidelines are there to save lives.
I have just been out to the park for my state approved daily exercise ration: a couple of

Motorsport UK have extended the suspension of events to June 30th.

Well, I went out without my watch - but some of those running appeared to have their wrist-borne data loggers on!
