Prof Jimmy Whitworth & Dr Charlotte Hammer [p36] make an 'interesting' (i.e., exposing their bias &/or COI) statement concerning future recommendations covid19.public-inquiry.uk/wp-content/upl…
'Engagement...with academic research groups is needed so that key unanswered Qs arising during the early stages of an epidemic can be rapidly addressed. An example from the COVID-19 epidemic would have been to determine the role of airborne and droplet spread of infection'
The fact that key opinion leaders at WHO, CDC etc energetically devoted themselves to advertising a never proven & obviously flawed hypothesis of predominant large droplet & fomite transmission, yet as early as Apr 2020 my then 9yo kids knew SARS2 was airborne, is mind boggling

🚨 NEWSFLASH 2
'How Covid-19 is transmitted
🇬🇧 Gov document 24 Jun 2020
Aerosol transmission - fine droplets of liquid containing virus are breathed out, form an aerosol & are carried through the air. You may become infected if you breathe these in'
Anyone interested in accountability for countless harms following still ongoing anti-reality IPC measures?
This June 2020 document has a nice authorship evidence trail of who in 🇬🇧 leadership could & should have done better at communicating the risks of airborne SARS2

From an expert on wordplay, Tom Jefferson, this is good
Use of the word ‘exactly’ allows the suggestion that our knowledge of respiratory viral biology is so lacking in detail that we can’t define & deliver transmission preventative measures
No cardiac electrophysiologist knows *exactly* why any individual patient gets AF (a rhythm disturbance typically causing lifestyle limiting symptoms & conferring a >> risk of stroke - risk varies)
Therefore, I should get another job, where there are no such unknowns

In the face of negligent leadership leading to hundreds of preventable deaths EVERY WEEK, I would like to share a story of how, against the odds, a dedicated team of NHS professionals once tried to save a single life 🧵
It’s a scandal that @UKHSA teams’ [led by @SMHopkins] Oct 2021 evidence summary stating that face masks reduce transmission in all settings, was used by DfE as ‘health advice *against* face masks in primary school age children’
I have the FOI response to prove it

‘Right now most of the ambulance services and large urban hospitals are struggling to manage, as are workplaces with people off sick
Slowing down the spread would give people on the frontline a chance to regroup, and catch their breath
‘Right now we are risk of burning out the very people who can assist those in need of care.
Governments and politicians need to take an upper hand here and do what is right for everyone, and act to ensure as many as possible are going to get through this safe, and well.’

In science, as in life, the most interesting details & surprises often come from secrets; what's never seen the light of day
I think now's the right time for one such 'secret' to be revealed
☣️WHO 'It's NOT airborne' tweet Mar 2020
✅Pushback from aerosol scientists July 2020
☣️WHO reactionary COVID19 IPC work of bias fiction, July 2020, denying airborne transmission beyond AGPs

Sick of anti-mask 'get back to normal' shite from your employer?
Oct 2021 SAGE
✅'all types of face coverings are, to some extent, effective in reducing transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in both healthcare & public, community settings...'
'– this is through a combination of source control and protection to the wearer (high confidence)'
2. Scottish Ministers established a special temporary scheme that provided death in service benefits for relevant persons working for, or providing services on behalf of, an NHS Scotland Health Board, Special Health Board,'

Today I asked my kids if they would be OK wearing face masks in class
Son, 11, was fine; started pimping his FFP2 with his favourite Pokémon
Twin sister’s head dropped & lower lip wobbled
“I’m scared the girls will whisper & it makes me think that what I am doing is wrong” 😢
How have public agencies colluded with Gov so effectively, that instead of being recognised as an act of mutual respect & concern for others, wearing a face mask can be seen as a cause for shame?

‘The Law Commission published reforms to outdated & unclear laws governing misconduct in public office on 4 Dec 2020’
‘The reforms would introduce two new statutory offences to replace the ancient common law offence, provide greater clarity, & target the most serious forms of misconduct in public office’
