These reports raise serious questions about the Government’s immediate response to this pandemic – Ashworth

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to reports in the Sunday Times on the UK government’s coronavirus response, said:

“These reports raise serious questions about the Government’s immediate response to this pandemic and whether they were too slow to act.

“Mistakes have been made, especially over PPE and testing, which ministers must learn from. It is now urgent that our NHS and care staff get the protective equipment they need to keep them safe.”
