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’m travelling through France at the moment and I have witnessed 100% compliance with wearing face masks indoors and on public transport. I have been asked to show my vaccine pass when eating in cafes and restaurants and visiting attractions etc. I feel so much safer here.
