Including Keir Starmer’s child’s school
The number of schools now hit by coronavirus following the reopening of classrooms has shot to 792* – and rising continually:
As usual, the rise is driven by a surging increase in England:
- 553 England
- 115 Scotland
- 69 Northern Ireland
- 55 Wales
The schools affected include that of Keir Starmer’s child. The Labour leader is self-isolating from today after one of his children came down with symptoms.
Boris Johnson and Starmer have been in lock-step in claiming schools are safe. Today, Israel became the first nation to return to a full lock-down after the virus ran wild again when schools there were reopened in full.
Starmer’s agreement with Johnson on schools being safe included a boast that his own children had been at school ‘throughout‘ the pandemic.
