Appalling: Do NOT give out any more lateral flow tests but dump them, UK government tells schools. – Today’s political cartoon by Kim Wareham.
As the new government guidance published this week tells schools that pupils are now only advised to self-isolate for three days if they test positive for COVID-19, the Department for Education (DfE) has also ordered schools NOT to give out any more lateral flow tests but to dump them instead.
School staff, children and families are left defenceless against COVID-19, which the UK government knows damages vital organs, like the brain and heart, and causes Long COVID.
