Testing in schools – Government wakes up to fact schools are major centre of transmission for Covid.4 min read
While mass testing in some secondary schools in London, and parts of Kent and Essex is a start, the Government must urgently address those other parts of the country where infection rates remain high, teachers and school leaders’ unions say.
As Covid-19 continues to spread aggressively within communities, the Health Secretary announced that secondary school children in London boroughs, and parts of Essex and Kent, will soon be tested. Many think, however, that the government may have misjudged the health risks associated to children.
No, the Pfizer/BioNTech coronavirus vaccine was not approved by the UK faster than the European Union because of Brexit.
As the AstraZeneca and Oxford University vaccine results are encouraging, governments can’t force people to be vaccinated, but they can penalise those who don’t.
De-funding Public Health England is not the answer. We need to learn lessons from the coronavirus response before making radical decisions.
