Boris Johnson has announced that all children should go back to school with immediate effect.

“We have realised that children really are not a threat to spreading the virus and have no need to be off school,” the Prime Minister announced.

Children were previously thought to be a significant risk but it has been realised that they no longer pose the same “high risk” as other vulnerable people. 

When asked about the Easter holidays Mr Johnson replied, “Children have already missed too much education. The Easter Holidays, therefore, have been cancelled and all children should be in school by lunchtime today.”

Asked if this was an April Fool, the Prime Minister said, “This is not a time for practical jokes! Get your children to school today!”

All teachers have been redrafted back to school with immediate effect and are ready to teach.
