UK Prime Minister insists ‘failure to reopen schools is not an option’ – Sunday Telegraph

On Sunday, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a gradual easing of restrictions.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has told allies that “failure to reopen schools is not an option”, the Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.

Earlier this month, Johnson said reopening schools in September was a social, economic and moral imperative, insisting schools would be able to operate safely despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Sunday Times reported this month that Johnson had ordered a public relations campaign to ensure schools open on time.
