OT: Complaints about lack of PPE!?

Why are people grumbling the government won't give teachers PPE masks? You can get them online for a fiver for goodness sake. What next, buy socks for them?

It's no different than a hospital providing PPE for doctors and nurses.
What are you going to do when a teacher books off sick and has to self isolate ? Do you think teachers grow on trees ? You can't just send the students home, a classroom full at a time, because there's no teacher.
When the staff at the care home all fell ill, Health Department staff had to substitute. Five homes actually ended up with medics from the military, as substitute carers. Now those people have fallen ill.
You just cannot fuck around with this stuff. Any situation which is "designed as an incubator", working there is *not* a joke. It's serious and potentially life threatening. I don't even see a point in "contact tracing", when a spreader could get in there and just knock the place over.
It's different when you have facilities with enough air movement and spacing. Any place people stay cooped up, is bad.

Only makes sense if it's expensive. But it's a FIVER.

That's different, you don't want the illness passing to patients who are weak for other reasons.

They get so much free time there's always spares. Anyway that's the school's problem.

It's just a bad flu, stop making a mountain out of a molehill. The death rate is still a thousand times less than the population growth.
