Pretty sure I need to be seen by a doctor, I’ve more than a few symptoms of chemo-induced anaemia, but I’ve put off phoning until I know the ward is open - no way I’m going in via A&E. An example of choices the immunocompromised have to make in an uncontrolled pandemic.
As another tweet said earlier 100+deaths mercifully low 10 people in a leaky dingy breaking point They are cruel and arrogant in equal measure in every government ministry. We must get them out of office as soon as possible .
There’s a 16 yr old arm here waiting for their second dose, over 8 weeks now and counting since their first. We’d be there tomorrow if it meant they could have a second jab.
There's nothing merciful. Every person who has died leaves behind a family devastated & heartbroken. It's not okay & it's not acceptable. Simple measures could help to stop virus spreading but even this the government refuse to do. We're not living with Covid, we're dying.
Sajid Javid made a compelling case for urgent intervention: "this new variant might not be more harmful, but what about the next one? And the next one?" With 100k cases a possibility, we are creating a playground for mutations. Javid's solution? No change in policy.
Sajid Javid boasted, "We've got the jabs, we just need the arms to put them into." My daughter (12) has the arm, but I can't get her a vaccine. 85% of younger teens still waiting, while tens of thousands of our kids catch Covid daily. Not good enough. We need these guys gone.
Javid as reassuring as the Cat in the Hat We said it would happen We knew that it would And it happened that way Just as it should There's no need to worry There's no need for fright We said it would happen We knew that it might No need for a new plan Cos No Plan's all right.
And how many people will die because their operations and treatment have had to be delayed due to treating covid?
Sajid Javid just described deaths as "mercifully low". Since his "Freedom Day", thirteen thousand, nine hundred and eighty-six people have died of Covid in the UK. What's merciful, or low, about that?
yeah look closely - and you'll see it looks pretty bad. especially when considering trajectories and not just numbers.https://twitter.com/paul__johnson/status/1450858784855891974 …
She was a woman of great phrases and sayings. When she was too busy, she'd say "I haven't got time to do that. I haven't got time to live or die." For shorthand, she'd say, "No time to die." I shall, of course, be filing suit with the Bond franchise. 2/2
My brilliant Mum, Gloria, was born in Leeds on this day in 1930. She was a teller of stories and a lover of people and a liver of life, and one of the most effective, engaging communicators I've ever met. Here she is, doing her thing, and I miss her every day. 1/2pic.twitter.com/QwbjaqaCsQ
4. Bolstering primary care (and we know there is money - double the entire primary care budget has been allocated to Test and Trace that is now largely defunct) 5. Protection or mitigation of the vulnerable 6. Informing the public 7. Preparing in anyway at all it seems 10/15
I want to see simple, low key measures like mandatory masks, home working and social distancing brought back ASAP to (a) protect society’s vulnerable members from Covid & (b) help the NHS carry on caring for all our non-Covid patients. Please RT if you do too.
I thought this could not be real. But DWP boss admits it is. Barbaric. https://twitter.com/BigIssue/status/1450430565556043777 …pic.twitter.com/i3oFxicwku
