Coronavirus, England, Europe, Health

Andy Burnham, Mayor of Manchester, UK:

  • The government should reverse the cuts it made to schools and make digital teaching widely available.
  • He also calls on them to listen to Marcus Rashford and providing free school meals.
  • In 2021, Tier 2 should be a maximum and if needed, a two week circuit breaker should be applied around the school holidays.
