Today we've topped 40,000 new cases of Covid - with multiple hospitals on black alert, patients in corridors & ambulances unable to offload patients. @10DowningStreet's "vaccine-only" response (no other mitigations) makes us a global outlier. It is staggeringly irresponsible.

Our current Covid hospitalisation rates are 3x those in France, 6x Italy & 15x Spain. We have nearly 7000 gravely unwell Covid patients in hospital. Do these people not matter? Nor the thousands with long Covid? Nor the children off school because case are sky high?

I really don’t know how to say this more plainly, @sajidjavid. Severely ill patients are being treated OUTSIDE hospitals, in the backs of ambulances, because there’s NOWHERE for them to go inside. Now. Everywhere. On your watch. This is deadly serious stuff. Do you not care?

There’s very little ‘management’ just a focus on the optics of how they are coming over in the press. Everyone for themselves basically.

I also think it’s prob much higher- half my 8year olds class off with it, most symptomless and we only know because we are all doing LFTs daily- how many families are doing them daily?! I bet it’s much much higher

My son has been off all week as his brother has tested positive but he's still negative. We had no cases in school last week, 3 so far this week. I reckon by half term there won't be many kids who haven't had it. That's the problem with exponentials and an R of 7 😔

Agreed. I’m currently on holiday in Spain. 1.5 meter social distancing and masks worn indoors. Feels much safer.
