The number of schools confirmed to be hit by coronavirus outbreaks is now 2,023*. The National Association of Head Teachers continues to estimate that more than four out of five schools are affected.
Many of the schools have seen multiple and serial infections and transmission within schools and from schools into the community are both now confirmed. Many more schools are being told to keep quiet about outbreaks and only isolate small groups or individuals.
Teachers are also now in intensive care after contracting the virus in school.
