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.

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

Watch on Facebook live… 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.

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.
