My sister is coughing up blood. Her kids have been sick constantly. They are scared to go to school b/c they are teased for wearing masks. My disabled daughter has had #SARSCoV2 twice caught at work, then at .@YorkUniversity b/c no one masks.

Tell me again things are FINE. 1/x
Tell me again to "get over it". Tell me again that this is "normal". My stepfather has been in hospital for nearly a month and half after a #SARSCoV2 infection. That's because northern #Alberta decided #COVID19 wasn't a thing anymore.

But "get back to normal", right? It's fine.
I encounter people every day who hack, cough, have trouble speaking at length, are winded from speaking, have trouble recalling basic things, who have changed in fundamental ways. But please tell me to "move on" and that I "over-reacting".

No, nothing is normal right now.

1/10🧵 - Tragically, a lack of understanding isn’t the only reason @Conservatives are so #antimask.

YES, some have made ludicrous statements about only STRANGERS being a #COVID risk, including our Secretary of State for Avoidable Ill-Health @sajidjavid ….

2 - Remember this car crash👇🏼interview on @SkyNews last month @sajidjavid ?

Shall we run that particular bit of public health advice past genuine experts like @trishgreenhalgh @dgurdasani1 @chrischirp @devisridhar @martinmckee @GabrielScally & all those at @IndependentSage?
3 - ….and how can we forget @Jacob_Rees_Mogg ‘s hilarious explanation yesterday for the lack of 😷s on the #Tory benches.

@LindsayHoyle_MP @OliverDowden @JonAshworth @AWMurrison
(As an aside, could it be time to introduce IQ tests into the application process for MPs 🤔?)

There are many layers to the #Covid19UK human catastrophe but IMO it’s all DELIBERATE @mrjamesob

Not even @BorisJohnson is so ignorant that he can’t understand the seriousness of what is currently unfolding.

The crux is - HE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN!

@sajidjavid @JonAshworth
If you were looking for the perfect foil for the #BrexitShambles & #NHSPrivatisation in one fell swoop AND you wanted to divert attention from the cronyism & corruption being uncovered every single day….you’d create as much chaos, fear & desperation as possible….
….carefully positioning your scapegoats (the EU/drs/nurses/teachers/refugees….

You’d allow #COVIDDisinformation to run riot, including from the @UKHSA (& conveniently replace #PHE), whilst churning out a #COVIDisOver narrative through a compliant media.

1. We can't verify if Dennis Prager did in fact test positive for Covid.
2. We can't be sure he is unvaccinated.
3. It's possible that an unvaccinated person his age could survive Covid, but his cult followers are drawing all the wrong conclusions from his claim, as intended.
Here is the video & transcript, without commentary (from the above linked @JasonSCampbell tweet.) Keep an eye out for follow up articles with new info about Dennis Prager's claims re Covid. Prager is one of many RW influencers deploying the same schtick.…
Before becoming #XGOP on 1/6, I never paid much attention to Prager and his disinformation media outlet @PragerU.

Since almost every national-level GOP politician officially came out as a far right fascist in 2021, I've been reviewing various media outlets in a new light...

This is v disturbing from @halfon4harlowMP
It’s clear that the CHAIR of @CommonsEd has absolutely no understanding of the significance of the #COVID19 #DeltaVariant & is a cheer leader of #COVIDIsOver idiocy!
Watch it for yourself….his entire focus is on PRE-PANDEMIC “NORMALITY” for SCHOOLS, pushing back against bubbles, any sort of restrictions & makes no mention at all of how to protect CV/CEV children, families or staff as cases rise.
@ChildrensComm @Rachel_deSouza @cv_cev
His views on consent for 12-15yr olds are obvious.
Is it possible he will be able to intervene in @CMO_England’s decision?
Does he have training in advising <16yr olds on such important matters?
Has he even heard of #GillickCompetency?

4 months before Clement Attlee PM chaired the ratification of the UN Charter (#UNday) he noted:

"Every attempt to remedy crying evils was blocked by the same plea of 'freedom for the individual'

It was in fact freedom for the rich & slavery for the poor"

They say "you can't fight City Hall" but of course you can & whether it's City Hall, the Alberta Legislature or Parliament Hill if the cause is right, your strategy is solid and your numbers are good, YOU'LL ACTUALLY WIN EVERY TIME.

That's right, I said it: you'll actually win every time. That's Science. /2…

I’m not sure who to report this to, but YET AGAIN @halfon4harlowMP, the CHAIR of @CommonsEd is OPENLY LINKING HIMSELF to #UsForThemUK who are #antimask #antivax, anti - ANY #COVID mitigation in schools.

This is NOT OK!

@LaylaMoran @AppgCoronavirus @ChildrensComm @NAHTnews
#UsForThemUK are linked to #CRG & other @Conservatives MPs, #HARTGroup & others, who’re relentlessly spreading #CovidDisinformation in the name of putting “children first”.

NO ONE who cares about the health & wellbeing of children should be promoting them.
They’re part of a web of ANTI-MITIGATION “campaigners” who want schools to open in Sept WITHOUT ANY PROTECTIONS against #COVID19 in place for 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿pupils, staff & families.

Every HT needs to know that the pupils in THEIR CARE, almost all of whom are unvaccinated, are NOT SAFE!

Hello MSM👋 waiting for someone to expose the SCANDAL of #COVID19UK, our children & young ppl.

The web of players, the links to the #CRG & other @Conservatives MPs, @hartgroup_org, @UsforThemUK, #GreatBarringtonDeclaration advocates, @Telegraph @Daily_Express journalists……1/11
The relentless stream of #COVIDDisinformation, which has been supported & retweeted by a small group of “like minded” medical professionals who should know better.

I’ve absolutely no doubt that issues w/ 2nd vaccines for 18-30yr olds & the pause on 12-18yr old 💉s are linked.
Is it too cynical to believe that withholding full vaccination of the <30s & not vaccinating even CV/CEV 12-18yr olds during the summer holidays is related to a desire to INCREASE #coronavirus TRANSMISSION as part of the #HerdImmunityByInfection “strategy”……with a NOVEL VIRUS!!

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!
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?

#Murderous #COVID19UK

1/11 Completely agree @ahmedaftab68

& “freedom fighters” conveniently forget the health & safety of the 1000s of transport workers who will HAVE NO CHOICE but to be surrounded by unmasked ppl outside #London EVERY DAY AT WORK, during a pandemic.

2/ The effect of millions of unmasked ppl using public transport across the country in 5 DAYS TIME in the face of current rapidly increasing cases, hospitalisations AND increasing deaths is likely to be devastating for individuals, families, communities, the UK & THE WORLD!
3/ Which bit of “the science” don’t the govt & those in the “as long as my life returns to normal I don’t care what happens to anyone else” camp, understand?

The pandemic IS NOT OVER!

Reckless UK govt decisions like this will have serious repercussions across the globe.

1/11 Just for 1 minute, put acute #COVID & #LongCovid to one side.

How exactly do those in the #DfE, #UsForThem, #CRG & the #HartGroup intend to protect children from more educational disruption w/ a highly contagious virus whirling its way through schools across the UK?

2/The ongoing educational damage done by CHOOSING NOT to adequately & effectively mitigate for an #airborne virus w/in UK schools (English esp) was completely avoidable.

IT WAS (& CONTINUES TO BE) A CHOICE, sanctioned by Gvmt AND a mostly complicit media.
3/ Our political leaders chose to follow a THEORETICAL #HerdImmunity “strategy” with a novel virus which RELIED ON unmitigated spread within young, fit parts of society & FACTORED IN that sadly some of those would also become seriously ill or die.

1/10 So #UsForThem, not satisfied with removing one of the very few protections our children have from #COVID19 , want to rob them of the chance to be vaccinated against it too?

Next they’ll recommend we shouldn’t brush their teeth without consent!
2/ Anyone with any knowledge of a world before routine childhood vaccinations will know that children suffered a great deal from diseases that we luckily rarely seen now.

Acute illness, long term morbidity & death.

Take a look at the UK childhood vaccination programme⬇️.
3/Molly Kingsley’s recent writings seek once again to misinform & confuse, to put a❓ over what is responsible parenting.

She implies that children must be able to give informed consent for #COVIDVaccination for it to have any validity.

Who consents for the IMMs above Molly?

1/12 How anyone who claims to care about children can read this thread & look at these figures, & still think “Oh yes, this was a good time to remove 😷s from secondary schools!”

What madness is it that has lead to pupils, staff & families being so unprotected from #COVID19?
2/ #Bolton is just 1 town, every day this week more places have found ⬆️cases of the #IndianVariant.

A local school has an outbreak, a whole yr group’s been sent home. A min of 10 children have tested +ve, so assuming they all have a mild infection, ONE could get #LongCovid.
3/ Has the #PrimeMinister decided that this is acceptable COLLATERAL DAMAGE?

Is this what the #antimask anti-scientific groups like #UsForThem, #HartGroup & the #CRG want for the children of this country?
1000s of innocent children w/ long term symptoms we don’t yet understand? Image

1) Morning @GavinWilliamson, just reading the update from @PHE_uk @GOVUK below ⬇️.…
2) Wondering how this particular bit of advice ⬇️ will play out in schools & early years settings after #Easter?

Crowded poorly ventilated classrooms w/ up to 30 kids from different households are the very essence of HIGH RISK spaces. Dining rooms/PE halls could even be worse!
3) If I’ve understood it correctly anywhere in the RED AREAS needs extra attention?

1) I read w/ interest the 24/3 @hartgroup_org #Covid19 bulletin.

”..there is no evidence that masks significantly ⬇️ transmission when worn routinely in REAL-WORLD SETTINGS.”

A RCT of 😷wearing during a pandemic of an #airborne 🦠would surely be completely unethical? ImageImage
2)”...face coverings are fuelling widespread, irrational fear when the current viral threat is very low & the vulnerable have been vaccinated.”

The ⬇️in cases has completely flattened & the majority of vulnerable ppl have had 1 vaccine dose.
Fear of an #airborne 🦠IS RATIONAL.
3) “Hart believes the Government should now lift the *mask* mandate & allow ppl to decide for themselves whether to wear one.”

A group of scientists, healthcare professionals & psychologists etc believe THIS is the right moment to ditch the wearing of 😷s?

1) Cases in schools have ⬆️ since schools fully opened on 8th Mar.
Everyone knew they would.
#SAGE predicted it.
UK schools remain NON #CovidSecure & 1000s of kids are isolating AGAIN.
Some clinicians are turning a blind eye & have joined the #antimask campaign.
#COVIDisAirborne - #MasksSaveLives & #VentilationMatters.
Smaller classes sizes & using #blendedlearning would protect individuals AND ⬇️disruption.
Advice on how to #MakeSchoolsSafe is abundant & accessible.
Why is it being consistently ignored by @educationgovuk? ImageImageImage
The Easter holidays give us some time & space to act, but while funding & political will are lacking, the school community remains very exposed to an #airborne🦠 that can cause severe illness, death & long term morbidity.

Why we need to teach scientific literacy, a thread...

In late November, @NatureComms published this paper on COVID-19 screening in Wuhan that occurred during a period approximately 5 to 8 weeks after lockdowns ended.…

About a month later, a junk news website you've probably never heard of (and I'm not linking to), published a complete misinterpretation of the findings stating that the paper said asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 did not occur and lockdowns were unnecessary.

How safe would you feel on an airplane right now if a person on the flight wasn’t wearing a mask?

Transport Canada has made masks mandatory for passengers but that policy comes with a few exceptions.…
In Canada, people who aren’t able to wear a mask for medical reasons are still able to board flights.

Antimask activist @chrissaccoccia1 — better known as Chris Sky — praised @airtransat for letting him take the flight sans mask this past weekend.…
“I would just like to commend you in public for honoring (sic) my face mask medical exemption on my flight today,” #antimask activist @chrissaccoccia1 tweeted.

The airline thanked him in a tweet, which was subsequently deleted.…

I am very tired after the hike this afternoon. We ventured into Huntington Beach, the #antimask capital of the world expecting to be attacked. About eighty percent of those we saw wore masks, so we felt safe.
The ones who didn't wear masks were mostly either teenagers walking in gangs or old beach bums ensconced in the large houses on the mesa. Most of these practiced social distancing.
I avoided taking the pictures of any of these. One woman confessed to us that she had left her house in a hurry to watch a fire and had left her mask at home. So not all of those with bare faces were sociopathic rebels.
