Coronavirus Daily: School plans could be out on hold as Norfolk registers no new daily cases




Education Secretary Gavin Williamson could announce in a House of Commons statement today that the government's plan to get all primary pupils back to school before the end of term could be scrapped.

The government wanted to try and get the pupils to spend at least four weeks at school before breaking up for the summer.

It follows Health Secretary Matt Hancock comments at Monday's briefing saying that English secondary schools may not reopen until September, or maybe later.

MP Matt Hancock said English secondary schools may not reopen until September 'At the earliest'.

Yesterday's figures from Public Health England showed Norfolk had no new daily positive cases over the last reported 24-hours, keeping its total so far at 2,210, with Suffolk reporting only two new cases, with a total of 1,541.

The UK's daily confirmed cases was 1,205, down from 1,326, with the overall count now at 287,339.

The number of daily deaths was reported at 55, but this figure could be low due to the lagging in some places reporting deaths over the weekend.
