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.

Mr Johnson told a Downing Street press conference on Friday he needed to "squeeze the brake pedal" on easing restrictions, following a rise in coronavirus cases.

And England's chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty, warned the nation had "probably reached near the limit or the limits" of what can be done to reopen society, meaning trade-offs may be needed to allow pupils to return to classrooms next month as planned
So, is this really how life is going to be for the next year or so. Chris Whitty seems insistent that we can't open much more, we may even have to close things back down if we want to reopen schools.

Is this life for the next year or do you believe that we can and should be making a bigger effort to reopen society in spite of a flatline in the number of cases as the 'R' value approaches 1?

I certainly hope this isn't life for a good while, it's extremely depressing if it is :(
