Johnson’s disregard for the safety of UK people plain as media trails his plan to lift lock-down just as NHS circulates information of serious complications of COVID-19 in children
The press are trailing Boris Johnson’s plan to ease the UK’s lock-down restrictions ahead of his return tomorrow. The Tory buffoon, whose ‘herd immunity‘ plan has never been abandoned in spite of media spin, intends to allow some businesses to open – and to re-open schools:
But the NHS has been circulating an urgent notification to medical staff, tweeted on Sunday by a number of doctors and medical organisations including the Paediatric Intensive Care Society, advising them to watch out for serious complications of coronavirus infection in children – previously said to be relatively untouched by the virus but now increasingly frequent:
The symptoms include inflammation of multiple organs – and even of ‘atypical’ inflammation of blood vessels (Kawasaki disease) and the heart occuring ‘commonly’, and ‘toxic shock’ with potentially fatal complications – along with ‘strange’ and unexplained rashes, abdominal pain and stomach upsets.
If the NHS is aware and alerting medical staff, then Health Secretary Matt Hancock is aware – and if Hancock is aware, then Johnson is aware.
Yet Johnson – who was ready to see hundreds of thousands of people die in the pursuit of ‘herd immunity‘ – with that news in hand is now planning to reconvene schools and put children in danger.
Not to mention the risk to their older relatives who may become infected even if the children escape the worst effects of the virus.
