A prototype armband warning those around people with weakened immune systems to socially distance
A man with a weakened immune system is calling for recognised, wearable symbols that indicate the need to observe social distance around individuals with the condition.
Neil Collingwood, 64, from Leek, Staffordshire, said the ending of England’s lockdown rules on 19 July was not good news for people less able to fight off Covid-19.
Even people with two vaccine jabs were not completely without risk, he said.
He has made a prototype arm band. It “is bright orange and uses the universal symbol for first aid,” Mr Collingwood explained.
