Sir Mark Walport, a renowned scientist who was an advisor to the British Government, assured this Sunday that if the schools remain open, the lockdowns will last longer.

In statements to Sky, Walport assures that the new confinement that starts this Thursday in England can fall short: “It is unlikely that this time (the rate of infections) will drop as fast as it did during the first closure because we have open schools. “

So Walport says there is a “possibility” that the restrictions should remain in place for more than four weeks.

Of the same opinion is the main union of the sector in Great Britain, the National Education Union (NEU).

Its secretary general, Kevin Courtney, said in a statement: “The government should include all schools in proposals for an immediate national closure and at a minimum be preparing for school rotations at the end of that period. “

“According to data from the ONS (Office of National Statistics) it is clear that schools they are an engine of virus transmission “, dijo Courtney.

“It would be counterproductive for the government to impose a national lockdown, ignoring the role of schools as one of the main contributors to the spread of the virus. This is likely to lead to the need to even longer closures in the future “he added.

The government’s position is the opposite. Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said Saturday that it is “very important” that schools and universities remain open.
