Video Description

Boris Johnson has announced plans to close all schools in England, as the UK death toll hits 104. It comes as infections rose by 676 to 2,626 in just 24 hours. The PM says that while children and young people are much less vulnerable, looking at the curve of the disease, further downward pressure should be applied on the upward curve by closing schools. "After schools close their gates on Friday they will remain closed for vast majority of pupils until further notice," Mr Johnson says.
