The UK government has decided to close all schools in London following the Covid-19 infection and rapid spread. London schools were to open again from Monday. Meanwhile, the decision was taken after news of the Corona infection intensified throughout England.
In view of the situation, the UK Department of Education immediately reviewed and directed that all schools across London should be closed. In the east, they were to be closed in certain areas of London.
As the Covid-19 case grew rapidly once again, teachers and opposition leaders of England were demanding that all schools be closed. Earlier, the National Health Service (NHS) had said that more number of Covid patients are being admitted in hospitals again. Teachers and leaders say that the closure of schools is necessary to save the country and the NHS due to increasing cases in the UK, especially London. Meanwhile, Britain’s Education Minister Gavin Williamson has said that we are monitoring the situation, schools will be reopened as soon as possible.
Officials said that according to the latest data, new strain of Covid-19 strains are increasing across the UK, especially in London. Most of the new cases found in southeastern and eastern England are of the new strain of Corona. In these areas, infection rates have increased at a much faster rate than anticipated. There is a need to take drastic measures to control the virus.
