If Matt Hancock ‘lost two people’ to coronavirus, why won’t he sort out the UK’s response?

Super-spreader: despite having had the coronavirus himself, Matt Hancock still ignores his own advice. This was at the opening of the Nightingale hospital at the Excel Centre in London. What a poor example.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock looked very emotional when he said he “lost two people” to coronavirus at yesterday’s press conference.

At the same time, he announced that the UK as a whole had lost a further 621 people to the disease since the day before.

This is all because of government incompetence in failing to conduct proper tests, failing to bring in important personal protective equipment and ventilators, and failing to impose social distancing at the right time.

But you won’t hear Mr Hancock eulogising about that.

Matters have become so bad in parts of the NHS that health workers have been reduced to wearing bin bags for protection.

The shortage of equipment is now so bad that some NHS staff are having it taken away from them.

At least one has quit the service altogether because of it:

It’s easy to understand why anybody would make this move – especially when the Health Secretary himself cannot be bothered to find out how many nurses have died after catching the virus due to lack of PPE:

He won’t be aware of the death of John Alagos:

He won’t know about the death of Liz Glanister:

He certainly won’t know about the Scottish carer who has passed away:


Hancock himself – despite having had the virus himself – regularly ignores his own advice on how to stop it from spreading:

And here’s the punchline: Asked to give nurses a pay rise (possibly due to the increased danger his government’s decisions have created for them), Hancock said, “Now is not the time.”

If not now… when?
