Don’t tell me that COVID doesn’t affect children. Our schools need to be much safer than they are.
‘Strikingly, sC5b9 levels were abnormal even in children with minimal disease or an incidental finding of SARS-CoV-2 infection, suggesting that any exposure to SARS-CoV-2 may be sufficient to induce elevations in this biomarker.’
‘Elevations in sC5b9 correlated with evidence of renal dysfunction, implying that higher levels of terminal complement activation were associated with renal injury.’
‘The presence of elevated sC5b9 levels in all SARS-CoV-2 groups compared with healthy control subjects suggests that complement activation and thrombotic microangiopathy are prevalent in pediatric patients with SARS-CoV-2 infections.’
‘It is therefore possible that there could be unrecognized long-term consequences of TMA due to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Future work is needed to better understand the long-term sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection and SARS-CoV-2–related TMA.’

There is no Australian option. You might as well call it the North Korean option. Oh to have a PM that could be trusted and respected. Mr Johnson is not such a person.
Australian relationship.
Australian style deal.
Australian solution.

What a bullshitter he is.
An Australian style failure of statecraft.

A one in a million chance of an Australian style deal.

There is no plan for an Australian style deal because we are going to get a great deal.

Johnson is a liar.

Country Blues

Stop all the clocks, put away your smartphone,
Liars stop lying with your lies overblown,
Silence the fools and muffle the spin
Bring out the coffin, untruth did win.
Let the planes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message 'Our Country is Dead'.
“Keep the lies simple, repeat, they’ll accept”
The Leave liars won, all has been wrecked
There was the North, the South, the East and West,
I loved my country, it felt best,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
But liars lie, authoritarians rise. I was wrong.

Why did the government allow sporting events to continue in early March? Cheltenham. Liverpool-Madrid. Why did they stop contact tracing on March 11th? Why did they only announce lockdown on March 23rd?
A quarter of a million people attended Cheltenham and then went on to spread COVID-19 around the country.

Cheltenham and Liverpool became hotspots of COVID-19.

Why did government let these events continue?
Remember, the govt at this time were talking about herd immunity. It is hard to credit the idea that govt wanted people to become ill & die but people became ill & died.

Between the 11th & 23rd there more than 3 doublings of COVID-19 cases.

Why did we not lockdown?

‘Policies designed to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed pushed a greater burden onto care homes.’

To protect hospitals they killed in care homes.…
‘many care homes say they believe the British government made a crucial early mistake: It focused too much attention on protecting the’ NHS ‘at the expense of the most vulnerable in society, among them the estimated 400,000 mostly elderly or infirm people who live in care homes’
‘A UK government spokesman defended the strategy. “This is an unprecedented global pandemic and we have taken the right steps at the right time to combat it, guided by the best scientific advice.”’

We know that is not true.
