Nick Thomas-Symonds comments on the news that the Brazil Covid variant has been found in the UK

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the news that the Brazil Covid variant has been found in the UK, said:

“It is terrible news that evidence of the highly infectious Covid variant from Brazil has been found in the UK.

“This is yet another example of the Conservatives being far too slow to protect our borders against Covid, closing the door after the horse has bolted.

“The utter chaos around airport testing, travel restrictions and quarantine is the fault of the Government. They have no proper strategy in place and this incompetence is putting lives at risk.”
