[28/9 update] I'm switching to a log scale today, partly because of the scale of the numbers (the rate for 10-14s is now > 1400/100k) and because this makes the trends easier to see: growth is slowing in 10-14s, but is increasingly apparent among those in 40s and adjacent ages.pic.twitter.com/5rJ5HDNbyh

Here's a bit about what it was like for women graduate students in the 70s who mixed with some of these very people.

COVID in England peaks among 11-15 year olds. This peak is 60% higher in the least deprived areas (blue) than in the most deprived (red)
Infections then pass to parents, who are on average older in the least deprived areas

Deleted earlier tweet to clarify- the duration data doesn't seem separated out by age, but it doesn't seem like there's a rapid drop off after 4wks. Rather symptoms in most people tend to persist even up to 6 months with a gradual decline in numbers affected.pic.twitter.com/Ydl0Xd9ItB
New study from the ONS looking at self-reported long COVID following SARS-CoV-2 infection in schools 1 in 3 staff & 1 in 10 secondary school children report persistent symptoms lasting 4 wks or more after infection. In most they affected day to day life & were not short-lived.pic.twitter.com/Ed9XOODEm6

Since Sajid Javid arrived: no restrictions, no community mobilisation, just "learn to live with the virus". That's why low vaxx rates in BME groups, poor test +trace, poor mask wearing, feeble safety in schools. Lack of leadership contributes to almost 4000 deaths per month.pic.twitter.com/yMDReNsXRL
