The UK begins to reopen schools in March



UMMATIMESOn March 8, all schools in the UK will reopen, "Children first, then school priority, two people can meet outside and maybe have coffee together, on March 8. Then on the 29th, two families, or six people, and outdoor sports (will be allowed to restart), "Vaccine Deployment Minister Nadhim Zahawi said on Monday.

"This is a gradual reopening of the whole of the UK, not the region," said Nadhim Zahawi

The easing measures are the first phase of a four-part roadmap, which is expected to include the reopening of non-essential retail and hospitality in the coming months.

Professor John Edmunds, Britain's leading epidemiologist, also said that the easing of the lockdown must be done gradually to prevent a surge in the number of Covid-19 hospitalized patients and deaths from Covid-19.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce his plans to the House of Commons Monday afternoon, before presiding over a press conference on Downing Street at 7pm. Lawmakers will vote on easing regulations in the coming weeks.

"Our priority has always been to bring children back to school which we know is very important to their education, as well as their mental and physical well-being," "Our decisions will be made based on the latest data at every step, and we will be careful about this approach so that we don't undo the progress we've made so far. " said Prime Minister Boris Johnson.a
