I am concerned to notice rising intolerance & prejudice during this difficult time of pandemic. There is increase racism, numerous complaints ( true & falsified) by hospital staff ( clinical & non-clinical) against black & Asian clinicians. London publication headline “ THERE ARE 2 PANDEMICS HAPPENING IN UK - COVID & RACISM”. There is little support for people subjected to domestic abuse during lockdown. To reduce the impact of the pandemic, what we need is the opposite ie unity, tolerance & kindness. A lot of doctors are actively planning to retire early or returning to India & East Europe.
we need to oppose all kinds of prejudices eg sexism, racism, anti-semitism, Islamophobia, nazism Etc. We need more awareness of Unconscious/ Implicit bias.
we can rebuild a prosperous future in a short period if we work together using the plethora of innovation developing so fast.

Covid has been a really hard time, especially whilst doing A levels, there’s little to no support and the situation concerning exams is so unknown and keeps getting delayed.
The pressure put on us to achieve high grades when we’ve missed half the year is so unreasonable.
My mental health has declined rapidly I’ve always had issues but I’ve recently had to call my doctors and organise some help.
I feel like students are misunderstood a repeatedly told we are just making excuses for not working yet I’m working so hard and feel completely behind and alone
Well guys, we've nearly been a year with covid-19. Just wow!
Looking back, i have had some special times made with my children this year. Being in lockdown has bought us all alot closer together, we have all made more time for each other. We have enjoyed the days out walking, and nights spent playing games.
Being a key worker, my children have had to continue at school so i can work.
Something which they have found very hard, due to friends not attending. But i think they have secretly been grateful for. It has kept their routine pretty similar to the norm, and they have been able to interact with people other than myself and my partner.
I am so very grateful for the teachers ensuring they are kept as safe as possible during these crazy times, and adapting to the "new school" days.
I am also grateful my children see us going to work everyday, and appreciate we are tired and exhausted wgen we return home.
But, keeling the talking around the dinner table, followed by a family fame each night keeps us sane. Planning a nice walk and movie each weekend, is keeping us sane. The small moments we catch up with family when lockdown allows & via Internet is so special now, when once was taken for granted.
Stay humble everyone, appreciate what you have 😍
Wear correct masks, not face coverings. Correct masks, are N95 or N99 or particle masks by 3M.
Face coverings will not keep you protected or stop your own particles from spreading.
UK citizens need to listen to their militsiya and do what they say.
I read stories on news of people getting fined for going out of local jurisdiction, feeling shocked when Pm has made law.
Do what they say, then R number will drop, ease of lockdown will begin, but stop being selfish!!
covid 19 negatively impacted my life. I am a financially independent person and with work being shut since the first lockdown my income has been very low. I understand that the furlough scheme was put in place to support us but it's not enough. On top of that I am a btec student who has been put at a disadvantage from other students. The government announced A level exams would be cancelled but didn't say anything about btecs. At this stage I was very anxious and nervous about the outcome of my grades so I stayed up revising non stop only for the government to announce that btecs would be cancelled with less that a weeks notice. I was relived but at the same time panicked because I don't want my grades to be based on my dedication to online learning as I find it very difficult to understand work over online lessons. I just hope that the grade I am awarded is fair and accurate so I have a chance at attending university. I strongly believe that if the government had been more vigilant and strict at the start of the pandemic then maybe we wouldn't be in this situation now as many other countries have been able to rid their citizens of the virus. Another thing I want to point out is how unjust boris johnson has been over the course of the pandemic, I am a Muslim and for us our eid was cancelled the night before and certain restrictions were set in place to ensure we couldn't celebrate, however boris allowed the restrictions to ease when Christmas came around ensuring families could meet and celebrate together. I am very disappointed with how the country is handling the pandemic. The government has not been able to protect us in this time of need.
Create for you, World!
This is the project that my school is organizing across the world.
Currently, I need to make some sort of a gift or a letter or anything for that project and I'm thinking of making a cringy but fun rap video
I hope everyone is coping well, I am a secondary school student and have found the situation overwhelming.The school work is intense.
i hope you are safe!
