Provide schools with CO2 monitors, measure indoor air quality, reduce the risk of aerosol transmission of Covid thus help prevent Long Covid

by Long Covid Kids in Stinsford, England, United Kingdom

Long Covid Kids and SafeEdForAll are passionate grassroots campaigners with shared aims, but we need your help.

Each monitor costs £90 plus VAT. Buying in units of 10 or more attracts discount.

We want to reduce the risk of Covid infection and Long Covid in children by providing schools with CO2 monitors that are scientifically recognised as a simple method of monitoring indoor air quality.

Long Covid affects every system in the body leaving the sufferer with chronic long-term health issues. Our clinical review found;

The mean length of symptoms was reported as 8 months.

The mean age was reported as 10 years.

Our initiative aims to support all UK schools and provide CO2 monitors for as many classrooms as possible.

By monitoring air quality it is possible to mitigate risks of transmission to the lowest practicable levels, as required by Health and Safety legislation.

100% of all donations will be used to purchase monitors which will be donated to schools across all four nations.

For more information about the importance of ventilation and ventilation monitoring please download the Long Covid Kids Schools Pack from our website which contains practical advice, research, and information to help schools make informed decisions.

Long Covid can be a life- impacting condition and over 43,000 children are already suffering, alongside 1000s of teachers and school staff.

ONS data recorded 114 000 teachers suffering from COVID symptoms beyond 12 weeks and that teaching is the second highest at-risk occupation from Long Covid.

Children are losing out on education and skilled teachers are being lost from the workplace due to inadequate mitigation measures in schools.

The only way to avoid Long Covid is to not get Covid.  Help us protect more children and staff whilst they are in the school environment, just like the rest of the population is in their workplace.

Thank you LCK Team
