1/ A word of warning. It doesn’t matter on which side of the fence you sit - left or right - everyone living in the UK should be concerned right now. Current government have already removed our right to peacefully protest. Now they want to remove our #HumanRights 🧵
2/ The European Convention on Human Rights (#ECHR) are international laws which protect us all.

They protect our right to freedom; our right to marry; our right not to be tortured, and more..
3/ Do not be fooled. The European Convention on Human Rights has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with being a part, or not a part, of Europe. Do not let this government convince you otherwise. Image
4/ If you’re not alarmed by this, please let me know which one of these #humanrights you would not want to apply to you or your children Image
5/ Here in the UK we take #HumanRights rights for granted. But we shouldn’t.

We must not become complacent. #Democracy and #freedom isn’t guaranteed, and it’s insidiously being eroded by current UK government.
6/ Passage of the #PolicingBill has already removed our right to peacefully protest. Government now wish to remove our #humanrights

This is a slippery slope to #fascism. A must 4 minute watch for anyone living in the UK right now.
7/ Regardless of one’s stance on politics, WE MUST ALL BE UNITED to defend our #democracy and #HumanRights.
8/ Defend your right to an education. Defend your right to marry. Defend your right to freedom. Defend your right not to be tortured.

We must never - I repeat, never - let UK government take our #HumanRights rights away.

New preprint in @medrxivpreprint which found circulating levels of components of #SARSCOV2 (viral RNA and spike protein) are associated and may contribute to the development of #LongCovid 🧵

Researchers investigated the blood plasma of three groups of patients

(1) Hospitalised with acute covid (n=116)

(2) Patients with Long Covid (n=33)

(3) Those recovered (n=14)
Hospitalised patients with acute covid were categorised into mild, moderate and severe according to WHO criteria:

Mild-Moderate, no O2

Moderate on O2

Severe disease

1/3 In the first six weeks of Long Covid, I experienced neurological sleep apnoea. At night, I would stop breathing. My body would wake me from sleep, or the edge of sleep, to remind me to breathe.
2/3 At the time, I suspected brainstem involvement and recognised I was severely unwell even if no one else did. We now know Covid has a predilection for the brain stem, a region where ACE2 receptors are plentiful.
3/3 Those who should’ve cared for us, did not. This paragraph tells me nothing I did not already know, but it brings validation. My heart breaks for any one else who has been through this. healthrising.org/blog/2022/07/1Image

🚨NHS workers, you have a legal right to work in safe environments.

Section 44 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 states employees are entitled to down tools & stay off work on FULL PAY if their employer refuses to make their work place safe. Demand #FFP3.🧵 @TheBMA
2/ It is wilful negligence to expose healthcare workers to a known deadly airborne pathogen. All public-facing NHS workers must be equipped with #RPE, including #FFP2 #FFP3, given #COVIDisAirborne. @H_S_E
3/ UK government and hospital trusts must now start to invest in #CleanAir. Masks are a short-term solution, the installation of air filtration systems are a long-term investment. @wesstreeting @SteveBarclay

🚨Removing the right to peacefully protest.

🚨Media propaganda.

🚨Advocating to remove human rights (these laws protect us all).

Be warned: This government aren’t just incompetent, they are slowly eroding out freedoms and basic human rights. #Fascism #Dictatorship 🧵
We are fortunate to live in a democratic society. But this is not guaranteed; it is subject to change, and should *never* be taken for granted.

Before my very eyes, I see our democracy being eroded. Fight for it. Vote to keep it.
Wake up to what this government are doing. This is not an ordinary Conservative government.

It is an issue beyond the difference of political opinion. Never let them take our #democracy #FreedomOfSpeech #HumanRights.

A short thread on:

🦠 Covid transmission
😷 How best to protect yourself
💉 Vaccine limitations
⚠️ Warning on infection harms

(A) Covid is airborne 🦠 This means, infectious particles are carried in the air we breathe.

Please take time to watch the short (1 min) video below 👇🏼
(B) Although hand washing helps spread infection and is a good thing to do, it does not clean the air.

Given #COVIDisAirborne, the best way to protect yourself from (re)infection is to wear a good-fitting, high-grade #FFP2, or preferably #FFP3, mask 😷
