A “moral duty” for children to return to school, says PM Boris Johnson

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said returning children to school was a “moral duty”.

He said he would rather close pubs, restaurants, and shops if another wave of coronavirus swept the country.

Mr Johnson said:


“Keeping our schools closed a moment longer than absolutely necessary is socially intolerable, economically unsustainable and morally indefensible.”

Meanwhile, it’s reported the daily update on Covid-19 deaths might be scrapped.

The way Public Health England has been calculating the numbers has been investigated.

It’s thought officials were “over-exaggerating” deaths.

The figures would be announced at the end of a week.

On the job front, more than 1,800 companies have told the Government of plans to cut 20 or more workers in June.

Labour is calling on the Government to halt a “jobs bonfire” by helping out industries and businesses still shut down by the pandemic.
