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?
