Pubs or "other activities" in England may need to close to allow schools to reopen next month, a scientist advising the government has said.

Prof Graham Medley told the BBC there may need to be a "trade-off", with the re-opening of schools seen as a "priority" for children's wellbeing.

It came after England's chief medical officer said the country was "near the limit" of opening up society.

Sod the pint, my grandkids come first. My Grandaughter has been badly affected by the lockdown and in turn my daughter, a week in Whitby has helped her, but now we have come back to a local lockdown in Bradford, even though we have had no cases in the last three or four weeks in Shipley ( part of Bradford Metropolitan.), And I am worried she will regress due to the situation. I'm furious at those who have been responsible for the new 'local' lockdown.

Although I do enjoy a pint or three kids come first so absolute no brainer, my grand kids need to get back to learning and seeing their friends again in Sept

I don't understand why it's one or the other?
I think it just has to do with the frequency of people bumping into people. It’s not especially sector focused anymore. One of my daughters works for a company that operates bowling alleys. They were suddenly told at the 11th hour they couldn’t open. Gyms however were allowed a week or so before so are still open (at the moment). There’s no logical reason for gyms to be open and bowling alleys closed as far as I can see; other than unfortunate timings.

As Chris Whitty said, we are at the limit. We can't afford to open both, although I don't see why the pubs that are playing the game shouldn't open. Close the rest down until they learn the rules.
