British Prime Minister Boris Johnson closes schools after reversing virus containment plan

London, March 19 (RHC)-- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has ordered schools closed across the United Kingdom beginning Friday.  Johnson reversed course this week after initially favoring a strategy to let the virus burn rapidly through the population in order to build “herd immunity.” 

He abandoned the approach after a study estimated that, without mitigation, a quarter of a million Britons could die.
