A mum claims she caught coronavirus in the playground from "selfish" parents who "brag" about their symptoms while on the school run.

The furious parent claims the school-run mums are "putting everyone at risk" so they can get "peace and quiet" from their own kids.

One mum, who asked not to be named, said others at the school gates are refusing to self isolate and continuing to take their children to school while they have Covid-19 symptoms.

Sh claims to have heard one mum bragging: "I’ve been through child birth and still standing, Covid-19 isn’t going to stop me doing school runs."

The mum told Hull Live she fears for the safety of other parents and pupils at Griffin Primary School in east Hull and has reported her concerns to the school.

She said: "Selfish parents are bragging they have Covid-19 symptoms while standing around in school playground putting everyone at risk.

She says mums did the school run despite having symptoms

"I heard one parent say to another 'oh I have all Covid symptoms and been told to get tested and isolate but I need peace and quiet and don’t like the testing they do'.

"And the other one was saying 'I’ve been through childbirth and still standing, Covid isn’t going to stop me doing school runs',"

She added that she was "shocked and disgusted".

"Now I’ve got symptoms and had to take all my children to isolate until a negative test while their kids are in school, potentially infecting everyone else as they haven’t let the school know about their symptoms.

"And other parents in that class and year have no idea. I'm mad, really mad. The parents are risking hundreds of people for their own selfish and lack of care.

The mums have been slammed as selfish

"The selfish parents need punishment or fined for knowing they have put others at risk just because they want a few hours peace.

The mum says she feels "shocking", but says her children are fine and symptom free, but are not happy about missing school.

She added: "I feel shocking. My children are fine but due to having symptoms they have to stay at home until I provide a negative test which I dunno when I can, due to the testing situation.

"I have no taste or smell. I feel like because I’m a good parent unlike them we miss out, my daughters, even though no symptoms can’t go to school and see their friends, it’s disgusting.

"Even though they have school work to do they want to be back. They’ve missed too much though, no fault of their own and not ours."

Griffin Primary School has been approached for comment.
