Health adviser Adam Hamdy contrasts misleading government/media narrative and global reality, as Education Secretary Williamson threatens council for closing schools a few days early
The UK yesterday became ‘pretty much the only country in the world’ to keep sending its children to school almost as normal in the midst of a pandemic – and is not even doing ‘the bare minimum’ recommended by the world’s leading health experts.
While the Tories and their media allies have neglected to mention it, Sweden and the Netherlands – the only nations to be ‘keeping us company’ yesterday announced new school closures in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Health adviser Adam Hamdy explained the situation and its consequences during an interview with the SKWAWKBOX on Socialist Telly last night:

Schools will also remain open during the new, nationwide ‘severe’ lockdown planned to begin 28/29 December.
The Tories continue to throw the lives of the UK’s people under the bus, in spite of global examples and overwhelming scientific evidence.
