Coronavirus UK news – Dominic Cummings tells MPs Boris Johnson ‘nearly fired Matt Hancock 15 times’ in pandemic grilling


Health minister Matt Hancock should have been fired for allegedly ‘lying’ in government meetings on Covid, Boris Johnson’s former top adviser Dominic Cummings said today.

“I think that the Secretary of State for Health, should have been fired for at least 15, 20 things including lying to everybody in multiple occasions in meeting after meeting in the cabinet room and publicly,” Cummings told a parliamentary committee.

Asked for an example, Cummings said Hancock had said that all patients got the treatment they needed during the first peak of the virus. Cummings said that was contrary to briefings from the government’s health experts, who had said some patients had not received necessary treatment.

He also said Hancock had told ministers that the supply of personal protective equipment was under control in April, but that had later proved not been the case. Cummings also said the country’s top civil servant had told him he had lost confidence in Hancock’s honesty.

A spokesman for Hancock said: “We absolutely reject Mr Cummings’ claims about the Health Secretary. The Health Secretary will continue to work closely with the PM to deliver the vaccine rollout, tackle the risks posed by variants and support the NHS.”
