Face Masks Are The Most Unlikely Political Football Of Our Lifetimes by Tom Beasley

I find myself wondering a lot about how the humble face covering became such a divisive political issue. It’s not as if there isn’t enough going on, even without the whole pandemic unpleasantness. Britain is heading towards a kamikaze break from the EU, America is rampaging into an election in which the incumbent President seems primed to contest a hypothetical defeat well beyond polling day and racially-charged unrest over police brutality is still bubbling under the surface. But the world is getting worked up over a little bit of fabric in front of your face that might save the lives of everyone’s gran. […]

No Ricoh, No Problem

The Sky Blues start their first season in the championship after an eight year exodus on 12th September against Bristol City.

Feeling Unwell? Seek Medical Attention

A West Midlands NHS doctor is urging people to seek medical attention straight away if they are feeling unwell, following growing evidence that people are going to GPs and doctors too late.

Dr Ron Daniels BEM, an intensive care doctor at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, working at Heartlands and Good Hope Hospitals, said it was imperative that people laid aside their fears of “catching COVID-19” at GP surgeries and other healthcare facilities. […]

In either circumstance, the way ahead will be uncertain and complex as the post-Covid ‘new normal’ collides with the final lap of Brexit negotiations.
