Note: Started this collection March 17 (and went backwards from there, then forward, to assemble a lot of the VI I’d been seeing on Twitter regarding COVID-19, coronavirus, global pandemic – however you’d like to refer to this). The first page quickly filled up, and started loading slow, so I started page two to keep the viewing experience optimal. At this point, there’s so much every day, that I’ll probably just start a new page each week. (Note: the dates on some posts may seem wacky, in a “this was tweeted on one date, but you embedded it here under another date” kind of way. Retweets, etc. – the “heading” dates here correspond [generally] to when I’ve seen things appear.)
Part one has the original “intro” I wrote for this (and it’s copy/pasted on part two). Part one contains VI from January 25 – March 31. Part two contains VI from April 1 – 5. Again, I’ll just start a new page weekly, to keep ’em fast loading. Part three has April 6 – 12. Part four has April 13 – 19. Part five has April 20 – 26.

During the Level 4 Lockdown supermarket workers got a pay rise. Now the pay rise has been rescinded.
But, #Covid19 crisis or not, they’re still #EssentialWorkers.
Try getting by without any of the #LowWage essential workers.
