Jonathan Ashworth comments on Dido Harding remarks at Science and Technology Committee

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on remarks made by Dido Harding at the Science and Technology Committee, said:

“Confirmation that 20,000 people a day sick with Covid are not isolating confirms our repeated warnings that without decent sick pay and support we won’t break chains of transmission.

“With worrying identification of the South African variant in the community and the E484K mutation in the infectious Kent variant it’s now more urgent than ever that this hole in our defences is fixed.”
