We must not allow Covid deaths to be ‘normalised’ | Letters
Dr Jo Fayram hopes the apathy of the British public will not last; Professors Joe Sim and Steve Tombs condemn the government’s lamentable failures; Professor Patricia Deps reports on Brazil’s Covid inquiry; and Margaret Farnworth highlights a super-spreader football matchLast week the government’s response to Covid was criticised in a report by two Commons committees for apparently pursuing herd immunity by infection at the start of the pandemic. Continuing high Covid rates indicate that nothing has changed except the public’s ability to react. According to experts (Why Britons are tolerating sky-high Covid rates – and why this may not last, 15 October), a reason for this is the “normalisation” of Covid infection and deaths by the government. In reality, there is nothing normal about this “normalisation”. The UK is known as “plague island” in Europe. Surely it’s time we realised that the use of protective measures against Covid are working well across the Channel, while the UK government’s lack of action continues to lead to unnecessary illness, suffering and death. Let’s hope that the experts quoted in your article are right and that the apathy of the British public will not last.Dr Jo FayramDurham Continue reading...

Repatriating cultural artefacts and rebuilding relationships | Letters
Dr Ellen McAdam recalls how, in 1998, Glasgow returned the Lakota Ghost Dance shirt to the Lakota community after years of negotiation, while Mike Pitts sheds light on what’s happening behind the scenes at museumsYour article (Cambridge college to be first in UK to return looted Benin bronze, 15 October) says that “after Jesus College announced its decision to return the Benin bronze in November 2019, a host of regional museums committed to or said they were also considering returning artefacts”. Such returns began much earlier than that. In 1998, Glasgow Museums returned the Lakota Ghost Dance shirt to the Lakota community after years of negotiation. The procedures that Glasgow city council developed included consultation with the public, and have been widely copied. Since then many non-national museums and other institutions have returned items to their cultures of origin.Dr Ellen McAdamMarston Green, West Midlands• Your article about the handover of a sculpture to Nigeria mentions the Gweagal shield, said to have been taken by Captain Cook’s men on their first encounter with Indigenous Australians, and now in the British Museum. In fact, the shield held by the museum was recently shown not to be that particular object (whose whereabouts are unknown); a hole was made not by gunshot, but a knot falling out. However, some of the items collected on the Endeavour’s voyage are in Britain, along with many other equally important pieces, as revealed by a project just completed. Continue reading...
