Czechia have closed schools.

'But we can't just not open schools'

It's happening.

Just looking at the other European nations and apart from Spain, which did seem to take off earlier than others, this recent explosion in cases does seem to have aligned with Back to School.

Restrictions were lifted for bars and pubs, limited gatherings back in May and June, and air travel mid June in lots of these places to no gigantic effect.

It seems to be schools and uni combined with the fact the other elements had been lifted that caused the reinfection rate to leap.

Unless we make drastic decisions regarding schooling I don't see even Tier 3 restrictions keeping a cap on infections and deaths in the UK, even if we assume continuing civil obedience.

Maybe this year's intake will grow up thinking that prematurely ending the lives of the elderly is the price worth paying to educate the young.

here they chose to enforce borderline dictatorial measures (curfew at 21h for millions of people) instead of doing something about schools.

Almost half of secondary schools in England sent home one or more pupils because of Covid incidents last week, the latest attendance figures show.

In my day you had to go to the trouble of faking a life-threatening illness to get a free day off school. Typical modern snowflakes etc.

More non-following of scientists.

Thank you for the useful information we will now disregard to the cost of all.

Give says it there. Close schools and parents can't go to work and Tory donors will have to do without their wage slaves.

Still, Starmer will be all over them, he has the interests of the members of trade unions at heart after all.
