Jonathan Ashworth responds to rising Covid infections

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to rising Covid infections, said:

“The hopeless failure to protect our borders and then stamp on the Delta variant means infections are growing nationwide and restrictions have been extended causing huge economic damage.

“It’s vital vaccination is rolled out faster, but we urgently need other measures in place to break transmission such as decent sick pay and support for isolation.”
