Report Lambastes UK Response

“Groupthink,” “fatalistic,” and “slow and gradualist.”
No government official would want these descriptors applied to their country’s response to COVID-19, yet that’s how a UK House of Commons committee report described UK efforts.

The report said:

  • The UK’s early response one of the worst public health failures in the country’s history and led to an increased death toll.

  • Boris Johnson’s government “squandered” the benefits of its January 2020 test for COVID-19 and instead led the country into a “permanent crisis.”

  • The lack of data early on to analyze was a major setback.
