Posters plastered in Earlsdon by Covid deniers have been criticised as “insulting” and “dangerous”.

Hand-written posters have been stuck onto bus shelters, lampposts and buildings along Earlsdon Street.

The posters, some titled a ‘Cov Covid-19 update’, claim that testing is being used to “justify lockdown and deaths”, brand mask wearing as “stupid rules”, and urge people to “avoid all mainstream media”.

More than three million people have died from the deadly coronavirus worldwide since the pandemic began, with 641 deaths linked to the virus in Coventry.

Coventry: Anti vaccine and Covid denying posters have appeared in bus stops, lamp posts and fly posted on Earlsdon High Street, Coventry.

Resident Antony Tucker, who reported the posters to Coventry City Council, said: “It is very concerning that we have found these.

“It is not just dangerous to mislead people in this way but it is insulting the so many people who have died or are mourning and people feel they have a right to spread falsehoods.”

Coventry City Council said it has been made aware of the posters.

Transport for West Midlands, which is responsible for the bus shelters, added it was in the process of removing the posters.

A spokesman for TfWM said: “We have been made aware of the posters on a number of bus shelters in Coventry and staff are busy cleaning them off. We aim to have them all removed by the end of this afternoon.

“This additional cleaning diverts staff from their work with partners to ensure the safe running of our transport network.”
