The virus is still a threat. Be kind to yourself and others if you catch it because people will continue to get severely ill and die from COVID.
The views of experts and health professionals on whether the government is right to stop free COVID testing, on the vaccination of children aged 5-11, the end of face mask requirement, and on the lifting of COVID self-isolation after a positive test.
The Education Secretary doesn’t have the power to go over the heads of headteachers and ban the wearing of facemasks in school.
Even though the government’s Plan B restrictions are coming to an end, the London Mayor would like commuters to continue using face masks in the capital’s transport network.
Why breakthrough infections in people who have had three jabs shouldn’t alarm you. And why vaccination and protective measures, such as more face mask use, greater testing, and better ventilation, all have an important part to play.
Suggesting that the benefit of wearing face masks at school to limit the spread of COVID-19 is more based on hope than evidence is misinformation. Even when it comes from the BBC.
