Never mind Typhoid Mary – is this Covid Boris? School Johnson visited joins those suffering outbreaks

‘Covid Boris’: this satirical image was made when Johnson caught the virus in April. It’s doubtful that he is now a carrier but he’s certainly doing his best to spread it across the UK again.

Before any of his few remaining supporters write in to whinge, the headline is largely frivolous and I don’t think Boris Johnson is actually responsible for the Covid-19 outbreak at Castle Rock School in Coalville.

Johnson visited the school less than two weeks ago, touting his message that children would be perfectly safe there and adults did not have to worry about catching the virus either.

But a staff member has now tested positive for Covid-19 and pupils in certain classes have been told to stay home for an indefinite period of time.

This is not an isolated case.

Covid-19 outbreaks in UK schools are multiplying exponentially since the Tories demanded that we all send our kids back.

According to Skwawkbox, the number of schools affected has increased by almost 50 per cent today alone (Monday, September 7, 2020) – from 140 to 201 at the time of writing.

All this is happening against a backdrop of infections reaching a 129-day high and the government secretly preparing for a second wave at the beginning of next month – but with no intention of re-implementing lockdown.

Instead the Tories are trying to drive people back into workplaces – against the direct advice of public health experts.

One concern that seems to have been pushed into the background is what the Tories used to lever kids back into classrooms in the first place: education.

Matt Hancock and all the other imbeciles – who clearly don’t have the advantage of a good education themselves – said that our children’s education would suffer if they didn’t go back. In response, I’d like to know:

How much more will a child’s education suffer by being bounced between school and home as Covid-19 outbreaks happen?

And, connected to that:

How are parents supposed to know whether they can physically go to work if they don’t know from one day to the next whether they will have to stay back and look after their kids?

These Covid-19 outbreaks happened in schools in June. Still want your kid there in September?

Social distancing for infants: apparently the measures imposed in some schools simply didn’t work.

It’s perfectly safe to send your child back to school, Boris Johnson said – flying in the face of the facts.

Public Health England – because it hasn’t gone yet – has just published details of the number of people who caught Covid-19 after schools opened in June. And they’re not good!

First-off, there were 30 outbreaks. There should have been none.

These outbreaks resulted in a total of 198 confirmed Covid-19 cases – 70 in children and 128 among staff. Again, there should have been none.

And 121 cases were linked to the outbreaks – 30 in children and 91 in staff. Again, these people would not have been at risk if schools had not reopened – in a limited way, remember – in June.

Is that really everybody, though?

I wouldn’t like to say for sure, because the government’s test and trace efforts have been a travesty.

Still, we’re being told that children are at greater risk of long-term harm if they don’t attend school than from the virus.

I’m sure that will be a great comfort to parents and children who contract it during the autumn term.

Fear over Asda bacon after Covid-19 outbreak confirmed in Yorkshire meat factory

Matt Hancock: for once he might actually be providing us with facts.

Bacon rashers and joints sold to Asda may have been contaminated with Covid-19 after an outbreak was discovered at a Yorkshire meat factory.

Mobile testing tents have been set up outside Kober Ltd near Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, which supplies Asda.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed the information at the daily Covid-19 briefing on Thursday (June 18).

He has spouted a lot of nonsense over the past few weeks, but it seems likely we can take this information as accurate, because it indicates an increased threat of Covid-19 – and he is usually desperate to reassure us that the threat is reducing.

Hopefully this has been caught before anything reached the food chain – but let’s all wait and see, shall we?
