UK government scientist: Pubs ’may need to shut’ to allow schools to reopen

Pubs or ’other activities’ in UK may need to close to allow schools to reopen next month, a scientist advising the government has said. ’I think we’re in a situation whereby most people think that opening schools is a priority,’ said Prof Graham Medley, adding, ’It might come down to a question of which do you trade off against each other..., do we think pubs are more important than schools?’.

"the group said the spread of coronavirus from children to adults "appears to be low" and outbreaks in schools "are extensions of community outbreaks and comprise small numbers, rather than indicating that schools are high-risk settings"." Could this, possibly, also help the US go forward with reopening schools? There has been a lot of talk about the possibility of children being infected, putting their lives at peril. But the Sky article clearly says here that spread of COVID from kids to adults is 'low'. If that is the case, why not reopen schools in the US, too? Could Trump be right about the need to reopen schools?
