Yesterday, the SKWAWKBOX reported the re-closure of seven schools in northern France after more than seventy new coronavirus cases were confirmed linked to them, just a week after the French government sent around a third of the country’s school-age children back to school.
The situation is developing rapidly – and now more than fifty schools have been closed across France after new confirmed or likely cases of the virus were identified.
Yet the UK media again seems to be stubbornly ignoring the French situation, while continuing to push a line that re-opening schools in England is low-risk – and even attacking teachers, unions, doctors and others who have expressed concerns or challenged the government to show the data on which it is basing its claim that children can safely return to the classroom.
The French media have reported in full on the changed situation, but once again the UK media are failing to challenge the government and instead are in many cases actively colluding in a propaganda push to send our children into the front line of the virus threat.
The perception of much of the rest of the world is that this country is a coronavirus disaster zone blighted by a dishonest and incompetent government. But then, those country’s are not taking their ‘news’ from the UK’s supposedly ‘mainstream’ press and broadcasters.
