🧵 on Israel 🇮🇱 and the #DeltaVariant
I get it. Most vaccinated people will be ok even if they get it. But the endless chorus of medical professionals saying “the only people with severe cases/death are chronically ill/old so whatevz 🤷🏻‍♀️😒” is getting to me. 👋🏽 we matter too…
…I guess me & every other immunocompromised person on 🌍 are not a concern to society🤔 & I guess the #Unvaccinated who are alowing these #covidvariants to emerge give no 💩 that we have to bear the burden of their inaction? Torn between “what else is new?” & “smh?” over here😒
As usual, those who were already the most vulnerable and in need of support PRE-Pandemic are suffering the most throughout this seemingly never-ending story of covid19 hell 🔥 allllll because we have never, not once in 🇺🇸 put #PublicHealth before 💰 during covid😟its so sad😟

What hope is there for the health & safety of school children in🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 when the chair of @CommonsEd continues to promote & support the views of @UsforThemUK & @lensiseethrough which are ANTI-#COVID MITIGATION on every level!
1/14🧵
Whilst @educationgovuk policy on #COVID19 mitigations in schools is so heavily influenced by this group, & others, there is little chance of any tangible change before 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools reopen in September.

16 months in to the pandemic, children here are FAR LESS PROTECTED, not more!

Does @halfon4harlowMP realise that school children are being unnecessarily exposed to #coronavirus as part of the government’s #HerdImmunityByInfection “strategy” which has been internationally condemned as an unscientific & barbaric way to proceed?

1/ #PrimeMinister & #HealthSecretary,

I just want to clarify how I can keep myself & my family safe from the #COVID19 surge in cases in our area?

I live & work in Newcastle, where cases are now well > 800 per 100,000, a real #COVIDHotSpot!

@BorisJohnson @sajidjavid
2/ How do you suggest advice to “proceed with caution” & “remain vigilant” will stop my #NHS colleagues & I from succumbing to #COVID19 as frontline HCWs regularly exposed to #coronavirus, now that 😷s are OPTIONAL in many places & virtually all restrictions will end in 7/7?
3/ Which exact bit of your roadmap/unlocking is still “following the science”?

The science that quite clearly says the best way to protect both health AND the economy PLUS prevent new #covidvariants arising is to KEEP COMMUNITY TRANSMISSION & CASES LOW?

Dep of Health the B.1.351 prevalent in SA has more mutations than the B.1.617 which is dominant in India, SA is still able to control the spread of B.1.351 in SA & bring the wave down to a plateau. #Covid19 #CovidVariants
Dep of Health says we have no need to panic about the B.1.617 which is dominant in India because, as with any variant of the #Coronavirus the treatment is the same and the way we prevent spread is the same.
Health Minister Dr Mkhize says scientists are working hard to examine the samples taken from patients that traveled from India. One of the sequences of a traveller has been completed and it turned out to be the B.1.351 variant- the one that is circulating here in South Africa.

数々の賞を受けた東京在住のジャーナリストであり「”ジャパニゼーション”~世界は日本の『失われた10年』から何を学べるのか?」の筆者である @WilliamPesek さんによる入魂の記事。

「東京の "ゾンビ五輪 "に歴史は寛容ではないだろう 介入すべき時が来た」
s.nikkei.com/3cT42a7

#ゾンビ五輪
1年前、失言癖のある麻生太郎副総理は、第二次世界大戦中の1940年に東京五輪が中止され、1980年にモスクワ五輪が大規模なボイコットを受けたように、2020年の五輪を「呪われた大会」と呼んだ。その後、新型コロナが進んでも、#Tokyo2020 はアンデッドなイベントとなってしまった。
上層部の組織的な支援に支えられる死に体の会社のように #Tokyo2020 は伝統の生ける屍となった。日本がソフトパワーの全てを無駄にしてしまう前に真剣に介入すべき時が来た。このスーパースプレッダーイベントの「オウンゴール」に値する行為を止めるよう呼び掛ける提言は、私が初めてではない。

Another excellent, practical resource for school heads to use to improve mitigation w/in UK schools.
As approx 10M ppl mix w/ virtually none of this in place it’s hard to believe that it won’t result in kicking off another #COVID19 surge w/ a BIG BANG! 1/8
Everyone able to effect change should read it & consider which side of the DEBATE they wish to be in over next few months.
False reassurances about the use of #lateralflowtests by the government & those prepared to support them on TV/media have attempted to hide to truth. 2/
Celebrity #antimaskers have continued to apply pressure & w/ the help of #Tory backed #UsForThem have successfully made #Masksinclass an OPTION, whilst children across the world, as young as 6 #WearAMask at school w/ out complaint or issue.
Dangerous #BritishExceptionalism! 3/

Dear @susannareid100 & @piersmorgan
In advance of your program tomorrow I wonder if I could ask for your help?
If any celebrity duo can make this happen, it is you two!
The ROAD MAP is here & there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
There are many positives in the #PrimeMinister’s cautious approach but the BIG BANG opening of English schools on 8th March with very few added mitigations is reckless & irresponsible, risking everything we have collectively achieved so far.
We all know that schools & early years settings are risky places to work in. Whatever the stats tell us about teachers en masse, I feel that for individual staff, being forced to work in crowded, poorly ventilated rooms w/ many others protected by little #PPE , is a VERY BIG ASK!

This is plea to all Headteachers regarding the imminent full opening of UK schools.

If we remove from the debate HOW MUCH children transmit/spread #coronavirus WITHIN schools, we all accept that they do spread it to a greater or lesser degree.
Fact!
1/8🧵
Children do not exist in isolation!
Every day they mix with their families & friends & during the school day they mix with many teachers & staff.
Fact!

So the word BUBBLE in the school context is UTTER NONSENSE! 2/
The government & #DfE have rejected virtually every mitigation proposed by #SAGE, @IndependentSage & @neu & we’re told the @CMO_England is v uneasy about a BIG BANG reopening.

You don’t have to be a scientist or medic to understand this re risk in various settings👇🏼.

1/14 Morning @SophyRidgeSky, just watched the interviews w/ @DominicRaab @annelongfield @timspector & @bphillipsonMP re #schoolsreopening fully on 8th Mar.

Discussions focused on dates, primary vs secondary, catch up plans, mental health concerns, vulnerable children....
2/But NOT A SINGLE MENTION OF #coronavirus MITIGATION INSIDE SCHOOLS!

Has the MSM been banned from mentioning mitigation measures?
Are British children/teaching staff different to those across the world?
Do they have SPECIAL IMMUNE SYSTEMS?
3/NO FIGURES on how many children get #COVID19?
NO MENTION of how many become seriously ill, are hospitalised or die?
Absolutely NO WORD about the 1 in 7 or 8 children who get #LongCovid!
NO ADVICE for parents of children w/ diseases like Diabetes, severe Asthma etc.

@dgurdasani1, you are a legend 👏!

PLEASE please listen to this from 07.20-40.30.
You will not regret it.

It clearly demonstrates the dangers of those without any CLINICAL knowledge & expertise being able to make crucial decisions that effect so many lives.
1/15 a thread.
Questions for the MODELLERS & MPs...

Have you actually seen a child poorly w/ #COVID19? It can be extremely frightening for both child & parents.

Have you seen/spoken to the parents of any children suffering w/ #LongCovid?
Why not listen to what parents & Drs are saying? 2/
#COVID19 is a multi-system disease with w/ many negative outcomes other than hospitalisation or death.

IT IS NOT FLU!

#COVID19 IS NOT FLU!

#LongCovid in both adults & children can be v debilitating & there’s currently v little knowledge about the long term prognosis. 3/.
