1/1 Let's target #SmartLockdown to address *unavoidable* contact patterns of the precarious #keyWorkers who carry most risk with #SupportToIsolate strategies. #tier4 #lockdown #ThinkLikeAModellerStingLikeABee. Here's why. jackiecassell.com/time-to-suppor… Cassius Clay
2/3 #EssentialWorker jobs, overcrowded #housing, shared #transport, #unpaidcare roles, lack of money - these are major *mechanisms* of transmission, not just statistical associations.

3/3 This @PHE report says it all. Even before #newvariant effect, we knew it's the people who are out there working who carry our #Covid19 risk. We need a #SmartLockdown that supports every #Essentialworker to #SelfIsolate #tier4 #lockdown gov.uk/government/pub…

People in low-paid jobs have been at high risk of contracting #covid19 throughout the pandemic.

On International #JusticeDay for cleaners and security guards, we must heed calls for safer workplaces, fair pay and dignity. Image
Many people in the UK can’t afford to take a sick day.

Emanuel Gomes died from #coronavirus after he continued to work with symptoms, fearing loss of income.

His tragic death is a reminder we need #SickPayForAll #JusticeForCleaners

Figures from @ONS showed security guards have the highest #Covid19 mortality rate of any occupation, almost 4.5 times the average.

It’s clear we need to do more to ensure their safety with access to PPE and workplace risk assessments.

These have been the two most important income support measures in what is likely to be the biggest economic recession in modern history. Both had serious shortcomings from the get-go. 3/

My stance and thread on June 1st #schoolsreopening just so the #dfe don't bully you with blind Science... I think the way #DominicCummnings was treated totally different to anyone else sums up the real lack of trust from the #government from Parents and teachers alike. 1/3
We wanted to start with Y6 on June 1st in bubbles BUT only 9/46 wanted the kids to return. Sadly this is not possible now as only 50% of the #PPE order has arrived. Im not opening my school (other than #Keyworkers / #vulnerables) until I can guarantee staff and children's safety
