Can't remember where I read the suggestion (don't think it was the SAGE committee!). I vaguely think it was some opinion columnist.Wow really? Who was the genius responsible for that sage advice?
Actually I'm completely confused as to what the position now is with under 18s and vaccinations. Keep seeing contradictory reports as to what's been decided, or if any decision has even been made. Seems very clear COVID is being spread across communities via schools, though - probably they should have made a decision about vaccinating children before they sent them all back to school.
I suspect we are heading towards another lockdown. The BMA is now asking the government to reintroduce things like mask mandates.
The government keeps repeating the same mistake - doing too little early on, and then having to do something drastic when things get out of hand.
