Covid-19: more than 3,000 new cases for third day in a row; 726 schools infected

Rampant: the Covid-19 virus is once again on the loose across the UK because the Tories haven’t just lost control; they’ve deliberately thrown it away.

It’s safe to say that Boris Johnson’s anti-Covid strategy has collapsed.

If we see any reports of success in reversing the rise of the disease, it will be despite his government’s restrictions, not because of them.

Here’s The Independent:

There were 3,330 confirmed new cases of coronavirus, according to government data published on Sunday, compared with 3,497 a day earlier.

The overall tally has now risen to 368,504 infections.

A further five new deaths were also reported, bringing the national total to 41,628 – the highest in Europe.

Separate figures published by the UK’s statistics agencies show there have been 57,400 deaths registered in the country where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

For the situation in schools, let’s go to the Tory Fibs Twitter account. At 10.51am on Sunday, it stated:

Less than five hours later, the total had risen again:

This is particularly concerning:

Outbreaks in schools mean pupils have to go home, meaning parents cannot go to work but have to stay back to look after them.

The fact that the situation may change at any minute means that, in ending the full lockdown, Johnson has created more uncertainty in both the economy and education than before, and has increased the risk of infection all round.
