Covid isn’t over because Sunak says so; he’s fooling us with his call to end free testing

Rishi Sunak: after he served up this little howler he pushed up Covid-19 infections massively. Now it seems he wants to repeat this feat by cancelling free Covid testing for people with symptoms – and not even replacing it with tests you have to buy.

Take a look at this:

Latest Covid figures show 46,025 new cases and 167 deaths, and the UK is the least-vaccinated country in western Europe.

And those are the conditions in which the Tory government has decided it wants to stop free Covid-19 testing for people with symptoms.

The initiative is spearheaded by the Treasury, not the Department for Health – which indicates to This Writer that Rishi Sunak wants to give the money he’s spending on this to more of his big business friends, so they can hide it in tax havens instead. Am I right?

Public health leaders are said to have been “blindsided” by the surprise announcement of the government’s intention, and have argued strongly against it, as you can see if you read the article linked below.

But the current situation means that, after the end of March, people with Covid aren’t likely to know.

If they don’t know, the authorities will be able to deny it, and official numbers will plummet.

But what will the death statistics do? And who will take the blame?

    It figures that they would stop testing while cases are still high. That way they can get back to killing the vulnerable in peace, and blaming us for not taking care to protect ourselves.
