Prediction: total shitshow come Sept when public realise implication of what’s happening re schools. It’s why #ZeroCOVID is only game in town & why every day we fail to pursue it is another day wasted. We are approaching failed state level of incompetence 

Independent SAGE has been calling for #ZeroCOVID. It’s what Scotland & Ireland doing. @CMO_England failed to give any adequate response why UK is not. Labour missing in action. And failure to take action over summer = another potential disaster this winter 

Meanwhile. This is hugely worrying.

Serco’s test & trace STILL failing to do the BASIC job it is being paid millions to do. After all these months we STILL don’t have a functioning system. Meanwhile, parliament HAS GONE ON HOLIDAY.

If that is the case @JonAshworth & @Keir_Starmer why have you failed to back or even engage with what is required for a #ZeroCOVID elimination strategy? The basic steps have not been taken. Every day counts.

There is terrible state of denial. Schools are the foundation to any sort of functioning economy. And cases are rising. Without a plan for elimination, there is no plan. This is our only window to get on top of the virus. And every day, we are failing
