ITV is reporting that a private school in North Wales will remain open over the half-term and Easter holidays for Chinese students who cannot return to China because of the deadly Coronavirus.
40 of the pupils at Myddelton College, in Denbigh, are from China where the death toll from the virus has risen to 1,380. On Thursday there were 121 deaths alone.
The school said the decision to stay open was made to ensure the health of all its students, reassure parents and safeguard the interests of Year 11 and Year 13 students who are due to take GCSE and A-level equivalent exams this summer.
The National Health Commission said coronavirus has infected almost 60,000 across the globe, with the overwhelming majority of those in China. Elsewhere more than 400 cases have been confirmed across 24 countries.
