THE global Covid-19 virus was with us in January 2020.

Eventually in March the Government recognised it was a pandemic and started to take action.

One of the first decisions made was to give 650 MPs £10,000 each to ensure they had the equipment that was needed in order that they could work from home.

The few quid which the Government has thrown into the education pot may help, but, is it not too little, too late?

Were you perplexed by the statement the Prime Minister made with regard to schools?

Children in reception classes, lively, tactile, too young to understand social distancing and the dangers of the virus, being the first to be sent back to school.
