Disaster fuelled by Tory arrogance continues to accelerate
706 UK schools* now have Coronavirus infections among the school population – just a single school day after the tally reached 500 on Thursday night.
While numbers in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales have risen significantly, they have been far outstripped by the exponential rise in English schools, which opened three weeks later:
• England 488
• Scotland 111
• Northern Ireland 68
• Wales 39
The Westminster elite continue to put our children and our vulnerable in danger – and are covering up a testing fiasco that makes a mockery of the official levels of infection among England’s population.
