Sham of Tories’ token measures exposed by reality
The number of schools hit by coronvirus has risen to to at least 347 – a number compiled by @ToryFibs from local news reports, NHS updates and school website – an increase of 97 from its overnight figure.
As usual, the increase is driven by the virus’s spread in England – the number of English schools has rocketed past that of Scotland, even though Scottish schools have been open for weeks longer than English schools, which returned just last week.
In spite of the obvious reality – as well as international studies proving how quickly the virus can spread within and from schools – the Tories have ignored schools and workplaces in their token response to the rapid increase in the number of cases in England.
