Catherine Bennett was one of the people who pushed for unvaccinated children to return to school during the Covid19 Omicron outbreak in January 2022: Children's hospitals have been unable to cope since then.

In the rush to connect kids to virtual classrooms during the Covid-19 pandemic, many governments failed to check that their education technology recommendations were safe. The result: Children are being surveilled. New report from Human Rights Watch:

Vaccines and mask-wearing could help bring Covid19 under control. But authorities continue to play down mask-wearing, with devastating consequences for many innocent people.
