At present I am Shielded. I am shielded because I have a chronic condition which would guarantee that the virus will kill me.
As I live in a RBKC flat where it is impossible for me to be able to self isolate I am living elsewhere. My landlords are pleased that I am doing this because, under shielding, they have a duty of care and cannot carry out that duty.
When, on an arbitrary date - August 1st - with no evidence that the Virus will cease to be a danger to me, shielding is lifted, my landlords will no longer have that duty of care.
My tenancy dictates that I MUST live at my flat, failure to do so will result in my eviction.
Therefore, on the first of August, I must move back into a building that the owners feel is not safe for me to live in. I will not be able to self isolate if I so chose. If I do not I will be making myself intentionally homeless and cease to be of any interest to RBKC.
If I decide to remain away from my flat my possessions will be put into storage by RBKC at my expense.
I would be delighted if Boris Johnson, Cummins and co lift not only my shielded status but also my condition, therefore rendering me safe to go home.
The virus is still in the community, there is no cure, a second wave is expected but it is safe to leave the trenches in order to protect the economy at the expense of human lives.
I am lucky. I have somewhere safe to remain and good friends. Millions of others are not. They are being thrown to the wolves.
