The reopening of schools in Great Britain has triggered a wave of Covid cases among students: in fact, according to official data, over 100 thousand children were absent last week with confirmed or suspected coronavirus infections.

The total of 103 thousand students with confirmed or suspected cases is higher than the number recorded at the end of the last school year. In mid-July, only 82,000 children were absent from school with confirmed or suspected cases.

These are the first official indications of the spread of the virus within schools and colleges since the start of the new school year in early September, when the use of preventive measures as masks and spacing, it was sidelined by the Johnson government.
