Rembering the small sense of relief in summer’20 that our collective sacrifices had brought infections down v low. Along with other parents I hoped schools might open *safely* with focus on #ventilation and #CleanAir but droplet dogma won. 🧵:- Will #CovidInquiryUK question those that peddled the myths that still hurt us? I knew we were f*cked when Jenny harries made ridiculous comments about masks doing more harm than good clearly this was just a pathetic way of getting around supply shortage independent.co.uk/news/health/co…

🧵/13 I’m a cleaner. I want talk to the left about covid. I clean for biz but mostly domestic homes. I like to do a good job & leave a place near spotless. That means tackling dust, grime, dirt, mould & mildew, bodily excretions, pet dander to name a few. It can be grim. 2/13 i was cleaning b4 covid so I have that as a comparison. I want to talk to the left (you’d typically be my allies right? I’m working a low status insecure relative poor pay job?) bcs I feel abandoned & let down-if you consider yourself an ally to low paid pls read on🙏🏼

🧵on being covid aware & cautious when the world says no to that. I’m in a new minority in the UK as someone who hasn’t (knowingly) had a covid infection. Once I understood how contagious C19 was, I understood risks went beyond just me alone but was more about everyone else 2/ Then I considered it was a new unknown to medics & scientists. By March’20 in the uk it was clear too little too late had been done, unprecedented levels of infection, it was traumatic to learn how many were dying everyday at an increasing rate. Definitely something to avoid.

Message from2019:Imagine a new deadly airborne virus swept across the world that without simple protection, would result in death & long term disability for millions. Imagine if powerful rich companies didn’t care, especially as Affording the temporary protection meant disruption to cash flow. Would you believe it if I told you that the elite decide to dupe the population into thinking it was all a hoax, a bit like a cold, and normalised the idea that the most vulnerable weren’t worth saving,

Slept badly woke early spooked with the “only 6” headline. I don’t meditate but like to start each day in my garden with a cuppa & birdwatching. Mum loved birdwatching too & we shared little anecdotes & updates. Little reminders like this, that your loved one is gone… is sad but still comforting. My youngest is whipping up cookies for my brothers birthday lunch tomorrow I’m browsing mums recipes for inspiration I’m the cook. Another sad/happy as mums birthday is a couple of days later & we usually got together for a posh meal out.

🧵1/5 #UKchildren 💔I’ve lost track the number of times this kind of “but…”argument is used where (all ages) covid death figures are concerned- but they were old, but they had serious health problems, but they were obese… it feeds down the flow chart of u can ignore covid b’cos ..2/ at the results end of the flow chart we have personal choice trumps severe health risks, eugenics, getting told to f-off on SM when raising issues for CEV community, valid concerns dismissed as hysteria or anxiety, stay indoors & keep the hazmat suit on etc etc….
