Jonathan Ashworth comments on news that Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak are not self isolating

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on news that Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak are not self isolating after being pinged, said:

 

“There will be parents across the country who have struggled when their children have been sent home because they were in a bubble and had to isolate.

 

“There will be workers across the country who have to isolate when pinged, including in public services like the NHS.

 

“This looks like one rule for Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak and something else for the rest of us.

 

“At a time when we need to maintain confidence in self isolation, people are going to look at this and wonder what on earth is going on.”
