Societal structures - #housing, #essentialworkers #unpaidcare expose people to #Covid19 risk. "Pandemic fatigue" is a convenient myth used to gloss over the real issues. Important blog on an issue now widely reported for...

This is misleading messaging @SwaleCouncil - please delete and re-word. Always, always state *clearly* and early that even with a negative test you can be infectious. This could backfire, and badly. #COVID19
Every test invitation should start with a caution about false negatives. A negative test is *not* a licence to stop social distancing #COVID19 @SwaleCouncil.
Also we know from #Liverpool that people who can't afford to #selfisolate aren't getting tested. This issue now getting attention - in today's @Telegraph @guardian and last night's @BBCNewsnight. My blog here. jackiecassell.com/time-to-suppor…

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. See jackiecassell.com/time-to-suppor… & @FinancialTimes #smartlockdown #tier4 #lockdownuk Letter Financial Times 31st December 2020
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…

1/ Well informed and thoughful thread on changed #COVID19 #vaccination priorities in UK. Thanks @sandyddouglas #Scientific advice to govt here and it's... gov.uk/government/pub…
2/ worth remembering that when you have #booster for #tetanus #hepatitis or whatever, no one asks what #brand was used last time. With #COVID19 it's also ...
3/ important to know the scientific advice *will change again and again* in the coming weeks and months. This doesn't mean it is wrong now. It is what #followingthescience looks like, on speed, during #COVID19 from normal. This is...

Sadly not one journalist asked about need to protect every locality#s #NHS #ITU capacity in #cummingspresser. This is why #NoSecondHome #StayHome is important and will continue to be throughout #summerholiday. A very important issue to keep live as #lockdown releases
@Fox_Claire this is an important issue and I was sorry it wasn't asked. This hasn't got through and will matter for a long time to come.

When I started working on #scabies outbreaks in #carehomes some of my colleagues thought it was a weird, marginal interest. Now with #COVID19 it's changing. Everyone's realising that infection is a big deal in these #EndOfLife settings. Image
#Carehomes for older people are hard to study. Residents often have #dementia, staff are run off their feet, #consent to research is difficult - brilliant colleagues including @MedVetAcarology sorted this academic.oup.com/phe/article-ab…
Life expectancy on entry to a #carehome for older people is typically 8 months - these settings are largely #LastHomes. Everyone needs a plan for what will and won't happen for the common things likely to make them ill or deteriorate. #CPR probably not part of it
