Information from the organisers
Ministers want to disregard the soaring number of cases, an extremely reckless agenda. We need public health policy now! We need #ZeroCovid
The government has effectively shifted to a policy of herd immunity by infection. Scientists and leading medical professional tells us this cannot work. The numbers of cases and deaths will rise even further when schools and workplaces fully reopen in England and Wales in September. There will be increase pressures on the NHS as autumn begins and there are no protections at all for the vulnerable and immuno-suppressed.
In addition, the scientists also warn that a partially vaccinated population and a freely circulating virus are the perfect conditions for the development of even more threatening strains.
Ministers want to disregard the soaring number of cases. But, even before back to work/school happens in England and Wales or the flu season begins, daily hospitalisations are 8 times their level at the same time last year, and deaths 10 times where they were in August 20202.
In response to the surge in cases we have been told to ignore previous rules and guidance.
This is a completely reckless policy, without any mitigations or proper safeguards.
Join us to hear about the campaigns for a set of policies based on public health and protecting the population.
