This Morning Doctor warns that STAFF ROOMS could be a hotbed for coronavirus

A doctor who appeared on This Morning has insisted that reopening schools poses a ‘lower’ risk than keeping children at home because they are ‘very unlikely to pass the coronavirus on to adults.

Dr. Sara Kayat today joined Larry Flanagan, general secretary of EIS, alongside Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes in the ITV program to discuss reopening schools.

Dr Sara told viewers that while transfer between children and teachers in school may be minimal, she is more wary of behavior between staff members, explaining, ‘It is in the teachers’ room that teachers need to be more careful because adults are will pass it on to each other. ‘

Her comments come days after Boris Johnson laid down the gauntlet of union leaders who blocked students’ return to classrooms by insisting that the country has a “ moral obligation ” to reopen schools next month.

Larry, who appeared on the program today, said the guidelines for opening Scottish schools were “very robust.”

But he added, “What our members are concerned about may be the area that the guidance does not cover. In the accompaniment there is a delight to take as much physical distance as possible.

But one area where members would like more guidance is the use of face coverings for students, for older students.

“Older students out of school, they may have to wear face masks in buses and museums, but at school it is left to their personal choice.”

‘The guideline at the moment is that face covers can be worn if a teacher or student wants to wear them.

‘We are concerned that older students who pass the virus on to other students are more important than younger students.

WHY ARE MASKS NOT MANDATORY IN SCHOOLS?

In England, the government has decided that face masks will not be necessary in schools.

The guidelines for schools state: “Wearing a face mask or face mask in schools or other educational establishments is not recommended.

‘Face masking can be useful for short periods indoors where there is a risk of close social contact with people you don’t normally meet and where social distance and other measures cannot be maintained, for example on public transport or in some shops.

This does not apply to schools or other educational environments.

Schools and other educational or childcare environments should therefore not require staff, children and students to wear face covers.

“Changing habits, cleaning and hygiene are effective measures to prevent the spread of the virus.”

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said, “If you’re in a room with the same people repeatedly and for extended periods of time, be it an office or a classroom, a mask doesn’t really protect them.”

“If you have 30 to 25 young adults in a class, face covering can be a matter of safety.”

Larry added, “We want consistency between inside and outside the school.”

Meanwhile, he continued, “Interestingly, two-thirds of our members in our survey supported measures to reopen the school, but only one in five expressed confidence in these security measures.”

Larry said he felt people had “general support for the reopening of schools, but a lot of fear.”

He explained: “Many older students are concerned about catching a virus and taking it home again.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a number of parents keeping their children at home until they see how the virus develops.”

He added, “We need to make sure we can maintain safety throughout the school year so that staff and students can have confidence.”

Dr. Sara explained, “I fully understand the fears surrounding it. It’s been five months. But we have to look at science.

A large study by UCL in May found that children are 50 percent less likely to contract coronavirus and when they do, the symptoms are very mild in most cases.

“A new preliminary study by PHE says transmission is very low and carries little to no risk.”

Eamonn asked the doctor if she would like to go back to work if she was a teacher, and she explained, “Personally, yes, as a doctor I have been in contact with many patients.

“As a teacher, I’m not worried about the kids if you’re with people who are unlikely to pass it on to you.”

She went on to warn of the risk of the teachers’ room, before adding that wearing a mask had to be “one of those voluntary things.”

She said, “The younger kids probably don’t understand the importance of not touching the face.

“It could be the older students who want to wear one anyway if they’ve thought about it.”

Meanwhile, Larry warned that teachers would face a 'major challenge' to address the impact of lockdown on young people when they return to school in September

Meanwhile, Larry Eamonn said that the school year could not return to normal just like that, explaining, “ Addressing the impact of lockdown on young people will be even more challenging, which can be traumatic for young people. . Schools will have to focus on the well-being of young people. ‘

Dr. Sara added that parents and children should focus on hand hygiene.

She said, “As soon as you step into the house, wash your hands and don’t touch anything else.

‘The risks are very low in schools and the risk of not sending children to school is being considered more often.’

In an article for The Mail on Sunday, the Prime Minister stated that returning to normal education is now his ‘national priority’.

The rallying cry will further increase political pressure on the issue, which is fast becoming a totemic test of the government’s ability to reboot the economy and bring the country safely out of lockdown.

Mr. Johnson writes, “Now that we know enough to safely reopen schools to all students, we have a moral obligation to do so.”

At the start of the lockdown in March, students were sent home, and since then only the children of key workers have enjoyed some level of normal classroom education.

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has come under a lot of pressure when critics warned that the layoff widened the educational divide between rich and poor and prevented many parents from returning to the workplace.

Mr. Johnson’s words come after Dr. Mary Bousted, head of the National Education Union, urged schools to ignore “threatening sounds” from the government and refuse to reopen if they feel it is unsafe.

Many parents have become angry after schools have told them that they will only be teaching their children until lunchtime on at least one day of the week because they need time to implement additional safety requirements, such as thorough cleaning and staggered breaks.

Students are NOT RISK of spreading Covid, study reveals

A groundbreaking coronavirus study has found that the risk of transmission in classrooms is minimal, increasing the pressure on the education secretary to fully reopen schools.

Boris Johnson is said to have warned that Gavin Williamson’s head will be on the chopping block if the students are not back in classes next month.

The prime minister has declared resuming classes a ‘national priority’ and plans to run a commercial to urge concerned parents to send their child back to class.

His campaign was bolstered yesterday by encouraging scientific evidence showing that there is little chance of infection in schools.

Professor Russell Viner, adviser to the Sage government, outlined Public Health England’s forthcoming study, stressing that the reopening of schools was ‘absolute’.

“A new study conducted in UK schools confirms that there is very little evidence that the virus is transmitted in schools,” he told the Sunday Times.

These are some of the biggest data you can find about schools anywhere. Britain has done very well when it comes to data collection in schools. ‘

The PHE study, due out later this year, tested more than 20,000 students and 100 teachers.
