One in eight primary pupils in England had Covid last week, figures show
Infections among younger children thought to have peaked, but secondary school disruption still rife
More than one in eight primary schoolchildren in England were infected with Covid during the last week of January, the highest prevalence for any age group at any stage during the pandemic.
Figures released on Friday by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggest that infections have now peaked among primary schoolchildren, but the surge is continuing to cause significant disruption with large numbers of children absent from school due to positive tests.
