LONDON (Reuters) – It is too hard to set a date yet for when schools can reopen after shutting to most students earlier this month as part of lockdown measures, a senior medical official in England said on Monday.

“We’ve always said schools should be the last to close and first to open but I think giving a more defined date than that is very difficult until we see what happens over the next few weeks,” said Susan Hopkins, senior medical adviser at Public Health England.
