The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris John Onson said that his Secretary of Health Matt Hancock called the inability to increase the ability to test for coronavirus at the beginning of the epidemic “completely absurd”, according to a personal statement from his former chief adviser.
Dominic Cummings has released his malicious WhatsApp messages blog: Wednesday. They show that John Onson was thinking of ousting Hancock, whom he sent to his former aide in 2020. On April 27, he revealed that he thought the provision of personal protective equipment was a “disaster.”
John Onson added in the message: “I can think of nothing more than taking Hancock out and putting him down [Michael] Let’s lean. “
The comments undermine Downing Street’s assertion that “the Prime Minister has full confidence in the Secretary of Health”, which shows John Onson’s doubts about Hancock’s abilities during the health crisis.
Downing Street said Wednesday.[No 10] does not intend to deal with every charge. The Prime Minister stated that next year we will conduct an official poll. “Our focus is on recovery from the epidemic,” he said, adding that John Onson had full confidence in Hancock.
“The Prime Minister has worked very closely with the Secretary of Health throughout this epidemic and will continue to do so,” he said.
Cummings wrote in a blog post that John Onson “has a clear plan to leave a few years after the next election at the latest,” adding that he “wants to make money and have fun so that he does not ‘continue.’ Number 10 dismissed the lawsuits as “complete nonsense.”
In May, Cummings revealed in parliamentary testimony that at the outbreak of the epidemic, he had repeatedly demanded that Hancock be fired for “lies” about failures. Has the base denied When he says inaccuracies to Onson.
The second exchange of WhatsApp in 2020 March 27 showed Cummings complaining that the health department had rejected the air conditioners on price grounds. John Onson answered. “It simply came to our notice then. He was hopeless. “
The third exchange took place on the same day, showing Cummings complaining that the United States had switched from 2,200 daily tests to 27,000 to 100,000 in just two weeks. In contrast, Hancock, according to Cummings, was “skeptical” that the UK would reach 10,000 tests next week.
John Onson answered. “It is completely absurd.”
Finally, in early April, Hancock set a goal of 100,000 daily tests, which was met a month later.
At the beginning of Britain, Britain’s lack of testing capacity became the focus of government criticism.
One of Cummings’ most damaging claims was his suggestion that Hancock reassure John Onson that all people They were taken from hospitals to care homes It was going to be tested in advance, which did not happen. Hancock defended himself by claiming that the test was performed when there was sufficient capacity.
Cummings said in his blog that Downing Street prompted Hancock to create a more ambitious testing plan – 100,000 daily tests.
“Hancock is creating a new version of reality in which he intends to increase the experiments until March 14,” he wrote, adding: “Reality. As part of the transition to Plan B, No. 10 forced a new test plan on Hancock, which was still in effect for 16/3 weeks under Plan A / herd immunity assumptions, making community trials meaningless.
Former assistant accused last month accused Onson to chase the chaotic, unprofessional epidemic response that has led to tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths.
In his blog he wrote: “If No. 10 is ready to lie so deeply, so widely about such crucial issues of life and death, now it can not trust Covid or any other possible issue of war or peace.”
Hancock announced this week that the lifting of the blockade would be lifted on July 19 to allow the NHS to vaccinate all health care workers over the age of 50, the most vulnerable.
Speaking to the Prime Minister, Labor leader Kir Starmer argued that India onson’s “indecision” in including India on its red voyage list prompted the release of the Delta version first discovered in India in the UK.
“The British made their decision by following the rules and getting vaccinated. “But the prime minister wasted it, allowing a new option to be introduced in the country,” he said.
Earlier on Wednesday, public health advisers warned that the spread of the Delta version had accelerated the number of new infections and hospitalizations in the UK.
“What we are seeing right now is about 7,000 to 8,000 infections a day. “But we know there are more than half of the real infections in the community,” said Susan Hopkins, deputy director of the National Infectious Diseases Service in England.
He added that without vaccinations or social restrictions, the reproductive rate could rise to 7 republics, which means that 70 out of every 10 people infected with the coronavirus will be infected.
