Covid: Schools aren’t ‘infection hubs’ says public health Medical Director

Dr Yvonne Doyle said she understood parents’ nervousness about schools returning after the summer in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. She stressed that lots of measures to reduce the risk of Covid spread remained in place.
