Two jabs not enough to prevent new Health Secretary contracting disease probably picked up at England match – yet he visited care home just after, despite 40% of transmission taking place before symptoms
New Health Secretary Sajid Javid has contracted COVID, six days after rubbing shoulders with other politicians and ‘celebs’ at England’s Euro football final last Sunday. He announced the news in a tweet.
But two days after the final, where he was pictured maskless and must have known he had a chance of picking up the virus, he took part in a ‘photo opp’ at a care home for the elderly – the scene of so much carnage in the first six months of this pandemic.
Javid is apparently only mildly ill with the infection, at least so far. However, some 40% of infections are transmitted before any symptoms appear in the sufferer.
And while Javid may only be mildly ill, as many as three out of ten people dying of the new ‘Delta’ virus strain have had two vaccinations long enough ago for maximum immunity to have developed:
With daily new infections passing 50,000 for the first time in around half a year, Javid’s and Boris Johnson’s determination to lift all anti-infection measures on Monday knowing that cases will soon exceed 100,000 a day is not just madness. It is murder – with more than 150,000 already fallen victim to the Tories’ psychopathic disregard for life. But Javid’s personal recklessness with the health of others has already been on show this week.
