Young girl recovered from mild coronavirus illness – but five weeks later she is in ICU
A Twitter thread by the great-aunt of the young daughter of a teacher and a doctor has gone viral on the social media platform.
The thread describes how her niece ended up in intensive care after appearing to recover from a mild coronavirus infection – but five weeks later developed the serious Kawasaki-like inflammation of the heart and circulatory system now known as a complication of coronavirus infection in children and young people.
The syndrome was first recognised in the UK and, while still rare, the number of cases has increased rapidly to over 100 – doubling in just the last week. Several children have died and multiple countries including the US are now seeing their children affected – while the UK is seeing twenty times as many cases as predicted.
The thread, which June Sim shared at the request of the little girl’s parents, leads to the inescapable conclusion that the government is rushing England’s children back to school when it is demonstrably still dangerous to do so – and Ms Sim concludes that the Tories are conducting an experiment with our children as the guinea pigs:
Teaching unions, the British Medical Association and millions of parents agree – Boris Johnson must not be allowed to throw England’s children, their teachers and families into ‘the next frontline’ of this pandemic.
As June Sim says, it is unconscionable to do so – yet it is precisely what Johnson and his ‘creepy undertaker’ Education Secretary Gavin Williamson want to do.
