Ireland’s National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) is expected to announce later today, that primary school children should wear face-coverings in the classroom.
According to the latest Health Protection Surveillance Centre report, nearly one in every hundred children in Ireland tested positive for covid last week.
According to Newstalk FM:
The HPSC said just 24 outbreaks, accounting for 139 cases, were linked to school settings – with the vast majority of children picking up the virus in the community.
Infectious disease consultant Dr Eoghan De Barra noted that the virus tends to be mildest in children.
“The direct health impact on children has been modest in their physical health so thankfully the numbers of children that end up severely unwell is small.”
It’s insane isn’t it? It’s diabolically evil too. Children rarely catch it, those who do are rarely ill, so why would anyone think it a good idea to muzzle children?
NPHET says that while children are not at serious risk of illness from covid, they can still carry the disease. They can pass it on to Granny and Grandad. Therefore, they should be masked up.
Worse still, Ireland’s deputy Prime Minister, the utterly vile Leo Varadkar, told his party (Fine Gael) yesterday, that he expected the green light would soon be given to vaccinating children aged between 5 and 11.
Ah, the tyranny. It’s relentless. It’s soul-destroying. But they (whoever they are) do say that it’s always darkest before the dawn. I’ll hang on to that thought, even though I feel it’s going to get a lot darker.
