Just 0.01% of schools affected by coronavirus outbreaks after reopening and no children needed hospital treatment


Just 0.01 per cent of preschools and primary schools in England suffered a coronavirus outbreak and no kids needed hospital treatment, a study has revealed.

A report by Public Health England (PHE) has revealed the reopening of schools after lockdown was eased was associated with 198 confirmed coronavirus cases – 70 in children and 128 in staff.

Schools in England were asked to reopen to children in nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 at the start of June, extending to Year 10 and 12 students from June 15. 

The PHE report found outbreaks in schools were usually small in size and more than half involved just one secondary case with PHE saying all were “successfully contained”.

The analysis said further school closures may be necessary in regions with increasing community infection, but this should only be considered “in extremis”.
