Urges people to follow new set of restrictions as COVID-19 cases rise on British university campuses
With a second wave of COVID-19 hitting the UK, there has been a lot of speculation over whether students stranded in their hostels would be able to return home for Christmas.
The British government said it intends to make it possible for students to spend Christmas with their families. For that, the government expects people to follow the new set of restrictions that have been imposed to check the rising number of COVID-positive cases, said Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden.
Thousands of students have been isolating themselves in their hostel rooms after a surge of cases in 40 British universities, including Manchester Metropolitan University, Glasgow University and Queen’s University Belfast.
The Labour Party has asked Education Secretary Gavin Williamson to ensure sufficient testing for all students on campuses.
