What is it that so many @Conservatives, incl @nadhimzahawi, don’t understand about airborne🦠 transmission? Just how simple do we need to make it? #ItsInTheAir #VentilationMatters #MasksSaveLives #OmicronVariant @BorisJohnson @sajidjavid @DonaldC73785137 @educationgovuk 1/10
Face masks should now be mandatory in classrooms to help combat the new Covid threat, says the @NEUnion tes.com/news/omicron-no-mask…

I suspect that most 5yr olds would understand if you showed them this👇🏼 We keep on saying “It’s not rocket science”…because it really isn’t! A #VaccinesOnly approach is simply not enough, it never was. We need MULTILAYERED mitigations, a #vaccinesPLUS strategy. #ThinkSmoke 2/

How such inadequate protections for the youngest members of society can be justified by reference to one’s own school days beats me. @DonaldC73785137 clearly doesn’t understand the science of airborne transmission! Maybe this from @VickiGSP will help? @halfon4harlowMP 3/
#Omicron We know little, but the risks are substantial and we should act in a precautionary way (boosters, good masks, ventilation). Lovely animation from @VickiGSP here.

Clearly public health directors & the @NEUnion disagree w/ @10DowningStreet’s advice. #COVID doesn’t care where/who you are, if you’re sharing poorly ventilated air w/ others your risk of catching it ⬆️. Sitting/standing/walking/talking/laughing…BREATHING! @CommonsEd @tes 4/

We know case numbers in schoolchildren including the <11s are very high, a child in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 is dying every week from #COVID. We know 1000s of children have #LongCovid, along with countless educational staff. Many 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿children have sadly lost a parent or close relative. @vickyford 5/

Some children are CV/CEV or have a family member who is so. Some adults are simply unable to be vaccinated. What protection is there for children/parents/staff who’re more vulnerable as we spend increasing amounts of time indoors & Christmas festivities begin? @cv_cev @_f4vl 6/

The joy of hearing that 12-15yr olds will be offered a 2nd vaccine was palpable but tempered by further delays to a decision on vaccines for 5-12yr olds. Our youngest schoolchildren are being sacrificed on an alter made by #UsforThemUK, @hartgroup_org & the #CRG! @SirGrahamBrady

Educational disruption is causing chaos & that’s before the #OmicronVariant has spread widely. Put simply ….sick kids can’t learn & sick teachers can’t teach. Why are 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿children being denied the protections of their European & international peers by such #WilfulNegligence? 8/

That @ChildrensComm & @RCPCHtweets have colluded w/ the @10DowningStreet plan for #DeliberateMassInfection is chilling. Such unconscionable brutality & recklessness w/ the lives of others, esp our youngest, is IMO totally unethical & immoral! @Rachel_deSouza @LaylaMoran 9/

Innocent 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿children deserve so much more, as do their families & the staff that teach/care for them. #COVIDisAirborne #UnsafeSchools #MasksSaveLives - yes they do! #MasksInClassroomsNow @MaryBoustedNEU @karamballes @cyclingkev @NAHTnews @RealGeoffBarton @PatrickR_NASUWT End
