While other nations fight Covid-19, the Tories lie about it – as ‘February 30’ proves

Closed: but the Tories pretended that the UK was closed to travellers from Covid-19 hotspots in China from February 30 – which is impossible.

Jonathan Van Tam is the Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England – although he shouldn’t be.

He can’t even lie convincingly.

Or does he honestly believe February has 30 days?

Speaking for the Tory government, he was trying to push another retrospective lie onto the people of the UK – that people from Covid-19 hotspots in China who came to the UK had been quarantined, starting from February 30 – a date that does not exist.

Funny thing is, as far as I can tell, this is the current advice for people travelling from the Chinese hotspots of Wuhan and Hubei – last updated February 13.

It’s a “question and answer” sheet which states:

Q: If I want to leave China via commercial means, will I be placed in quarantine in the UK on arrival?

A: No. People arriving from Wuhan and Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days should stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu, and call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the area. This applies even if you do not have symptoms of the virus.

The UK is not taking special measures regarding arrivals of any nationality from China beyond standard entry procedures. However, if you believe you may have been exposed to coronavirus or been in contact with another person exhibiting flu-like symptoms, you may wish to take precautions and self-quarantine for a minimum 7 days, also informing anyone you might be living with of your concerns.

Another day, another Tory lie about the coronavirus.

We cannot trust them on a single thing.

Yet they have taken it upon themselves to co-ordinate our response to the biggest threat of life we have faced in decades. No wonder more than 60,000 people have died.

    Fascist tories are brazen in their countless lies but I expect no less from this fascist callous profit driven tory government! Fascist tories already re-writing their fascist tory history and I have no doubt many women and men will accept these lies as truths!

    So what about the Cheltenham Racing which took place on 23rd March, 2020 and resulted in numerous women and men being infected with the coronavirus! Oh that didn’t happen because the fascist tories advised against this taking place!!! Deliberate sarcasm!

    Still never mind – fascist tory revisionist history will ensure they are given gold stars for murdering over 60,000 women and men!
