Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to Public Health England figures showing sharp rise in Delta variant cases

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Public Health England figures showing a sharp rise in Delta variant cases, said:

“These figures are terrible. The pace at which cases of the Delta variant continue to rise is deeply worrying and is putting the lifting of restrictions at risk.

“The blame for this lies with the Prime Minister and his reckless refusal to act on Labour’s repeated warnings to secure our borders against Covid and its variants.”
