“And for as long as they don’t have a voice, they shall have mine”. I stand with @MarcusRashford
Today in the UK a child was unable to go their parent’s funeral service because they were told to isolate for a #COVID19 contact. I can no longer understand the world in which I live.
Are doctors allowed to talk about another way? Death 🆚 death “The result of a crippled economy is that thousands of us – now and in the future – will be condemned to a shorter, more miserable existence” Between herd immunity and lockdown -
Quote from someone in isolation with kids, after one day “We’re all going a bit mad inside” But people want the schools closed for two months... Prolonged isolation won’t work now because we won’t be able to sustain it. Which is why we SAVE IT FOR THE PEAK.
Thinking of all those people with terminal diagnoses who are not facing 6 months of #COVID19 restrictions but restrictions for the rest of their life. That pain will never be measured or reflected on a chart or data set of official figures. That pain matters.
