Covid hasn't gone away and it is primarily airborne, and anyone can get it. Aerosols can spread like smoke and build up in indoor spaces - other people coming into the space can then be infected. Delta is much worse, evidence of infection from fleeting interactions - @HildaPalmer
@HildaPalmer Ventilation is a key measure - bring in new air to remove Covid air! You can measure this by how long it takes for an 'air change' to happen, we want 4-6 air changes an hour. The more the better. But winter is coming, and people also need to keep warm.
Measure CO2 to see how much already-breathed air there is in the space. Opening windows is not enough, mechanical methods are also needed.

If the ventilation isn't up to scratch, you can use HEPA filtration. They remove small aerosols and they are portable

With Sercoโ€™s contract ending on May 17, now is the time to apply pressure for it not to be renewed. We need a contact tracing and isolation support system that is run locally!

Now hearing from @HackneyAbbott!

We should remember the terrible death toll in this country. We have almost become numb to the figures, but they represent lives snuffed out and the government's failure to take the right measures

Students were made to come back to university just so they could be charged rent and tuition fees! The UCU warned about this but students were put in danger because of the effects of marketisation.
Black and ethnic minority people have faced higher death rates, including health workers. The government will not address the institutional racism underlying that.

Now hearing from @jnewsham of @hazardscampaign!

Trade union safety reps have done amazingly in the pandemic. Workers have been put at risk throughout, and workers' health is public health.

The pandemic didn't cause the health and safety crisis, it exposed it.
The drive to cut regulation and keep non-essential workplaces open. Whose bright idea was it to open pubs, restaurants and gyms? Those in precarious and low-paid work need better protections against infection. Many have no sick pay.
The government has ignored workplace transmission. Schools were forced to widen reopening. They have not followed a #ZeroCovid strategy; they have no overall strategy at all. Matt Hancock still doesn't understand why people are having to go to work even when they are sick.
