The UK authorities reported 816 new cases of coronavirus this Monday, a level below the 1,062 positive levels confirmed on Sunday and the worst since late June. This was discussed in the full debate on the imminent reopening of schools.
The UK Department of Health has raised the tentative balance of COVID-19 cases to 311,641, a disease attributed to 46,574 deaths in the UK. The government has updated the death toll with 816 more deaths.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited a school in east London on Monday, from where he reaffirmed the will of the executive branch to resume classes. With that in mind, he said that closing schools “is the last thing his cabinet wants”.
“We think that education is the priority in the country and that it is a question of social justice”, the British “Prime Minister” defended according to the public broadcaster BBC. Several opposition organizations and politicians have urged the government to improve its follow-up capacity with regard to school reopening.
