  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “England’s schools will not reopen before March” – below is their description.

    England’s lockdown will continue at least until March 8. Boris Johnson said today that schools will not reopen before then – the earliest moment that the most vulnerable could all be protected by the vaccine.

    Other lockdown restrictions might be eased after that. Northern Ireland’s lockdown already runs to March. Wales and Scotland will review their plans in the next few days.

    But for travellers arriving anywhere in the UK, stricter measures are coming, with passengers arriving from certain countries to be required to quarantine for 10 days in a hotel.

    In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
