Covid cases Sheffield: Infection rate on the rise as Government dicusses ‘Plan B’ to tackle autumn infection spikes | The Star

Too much is not being done, as Plan B needs to be implemented now before the situation worsens any further. However, this Government are Ace at not doing and leaving plan to the last minute to implement, or more often than not well after than they should have.

Their only success was the COVID vaccination programme and now that appears to be failing, but this Government still looks at the success as the only way out. That is completely wrong as all measures have to be implemented, for only relying on one is a very false premise.

So with immediate effect they need to bring back mandatory wearing of face-masks and social distancing, maybe, even working from home.

Also sack the new Minister for Vaccines and Public Health Maggie Throup, MP as she appears to be worse than useless, unlike her predecessor, the former Minister for Vaccines and Public Health Nadhim Zahawi, MP.

What they can’t do is nothing, which they are doing currently, for if they had implemented actions, previously then, perhaps we would not be in this situation. The former is now with hindsight, but not now, so Plan B needs to be implemented immediately, so there is more to rely on than the vaccine and booster vaccination programme.

To not do so will see COVID continue to take off and the collapse of the NHS, as well as Social Care.

People with learning disabilities should be prioritised for a Covid vaccine | Learning disability | The Guardian

This is so true, for persons with learning disabilities and/or autism are the very forgotten in many aspects, COVID-19 is just another to a very long list.

It is as though people in authority don’t believe that people with learning disabilities and/or autism exist or is it that they just don’t care, which the latter is more likely.

So going back to COVID-19 vaccine, there is a significant number of persons with learning disabilities and/or autism who are averse to needles, so they will never have the vaccine until another method of giving the vaccine is available.

If we look at the flu vaccination programme, adults with a learning disability and/or autism are entitled to have the nasal spray, which is usually only given to children. While it may not be as effective as the injected vaccine, it is better than nothing.

So, when will something similar be available with regards to COVID-19, perhaps never, for who is doing research on this, nobody as far as I know.

But, wait, there is an article in the CambridgeshireLive, https://www.cambridge-news.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/taffix-coronavirus-nasal-spray-covid-19553801. However, if this is true why is this not being mentioned officially, is it because no one cares about persons with learning disabilities/and or autism with a needle aversion. or is it because this article about Taffix Covid is not true.

Even more so, why is it not being cleared from the shelves for anyone to take and why is so much being left to the official vaccines, currently the Pfizer/BioNTech and Oxford/AstraZeneca. Also, surely, this Taffix Covid should be mentioned of the NHS site at, https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/

But, back to the original article, People with learning disabilities should be prioritised for a Covid vaccine, yes, they should, but will they, I doubt it, for this Government could not care less, which is plain to see in how they have and are treating, persons with learning disabilities and/or autism in all this Government does.
