UK will have to choose between opening schools or pubs, says expert

The UK may have to choose between keeping pubs open or reopening schools – if it wants low infection rates coronavirus, a member of the expert group told the British press that advises the government to contain the pandemic.

“Some other restrictive activities may be necessary to allow schools to open. It can boil down to a matter of exchange and then priorities. Do we think pubs are more important than schools?” Asked Professor Graham Medley.

Medley’s claim came to light the day after crowds were seen crowding bars in northern England, despite an increase in covid-19 cases and the government’s “step back” in reopening.

WHO (World Health Organization) balance sheet shows that, until yesterday, the United Kingdom had 302,305 cases of covid-19 and 45,999 deaths due to the coronavirus.
