Government response to COVID-19

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on the government’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, said:


“Our part-time Prime Minister needs to get a grip of this escalating situation quickly. It shouldn’t take another 3 days for this meeting to take place.


“People are understandably worried. Boris Johnson should drop his childish ban on ministers appearing on BBC radio programmes. The public deserves to hear what plans are in place to deal with the outbreak.”
