Jonathan Ashworth calls on the Prime Minister to address the nation to set out how he will get control of COVID infections

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the rising number of COVID-19 infections in England, said;

 

“It has been apparent for some days that the virus is again out of control in parts of the country. The Government’s tiered system has failed to stem its spread.

 

“This is an incredibly serious moment and people are worried. The Prime Minister has refused to take action to limit the virus’ spread over Christmas. All he has offered so far is confusion and indecision.

 

“He must now address the nation to explain what action he will be taking.”
