The SKWAWKBOX reported this morning that 158 UK schools have been hit by coronavirus outbreaks since the Tories re-opened classrooms.
That number has risen to 183, with 25 more schools affected in just a few hours.
One of the schools hit was the scene of a Boris Johnson PR stunt last month, while a school in Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s constituency is the site of the first confirmed on-site infection cluster.
The rate of new infections in the UK has hit a 129-day high. The return to school, the push for workers to return to workplaces and the reopening of indoor hospitality is fueling a second wave that health chiefs have been told to expect at the beginning of next month.
Yet the Tories – with the collusion of Keir Starme- continue to press ahead regardless.
