    Thousands of students at dozens of universities are “trapped” in self-isolation, as coronavirus sweeps through education centres around the country. The president of the National Union of Students (NUS) told ITV shocking stories of students having to go without food in “disgusting conditions” as security guards watch exits to ensure they stay indoors. At least 30 universities have had Covid-19 outbreaks after ministers told students, in the face of warnings about the spread of infection, that they should relocate from their permanent residences to their student homes at the start of term. At Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) more than 1,700 students are in isolation and will be taught via Zoom after in-person lessons were cancelled for the next two weeks.
