On The Other Hand, Boris Johnson has actually come under fire following claims his federal government missed out on a series of chances to minimize the effect of the coronavirus epidemic in February and March.

According to an examination by The Sunday Times, alarming cautions were disregarded from researchers – and the UK lost “a crucial five weeks in the fight to tackle the dangerous threat of coronavirus despite being in a perilously poor state of preparation for a pandemic”.

The paper likewise highlighted the reality that Mr Johnson did not go to the first 5 emergency situation conferences in the run- as much as the break out in the UK – something that was verified to Sky News at the start of March.

However Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove countered, informing Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday: “The idea that the prime minister skipped meetings that were vital to our response to the coronavirus, I think is grotesque.”
