Boris Johnson.. contracted COVID and ended in intensive care.. there were rumors at the time that he was near death..
But he wanted to be injected with COVID prior to this!?
Fate knocks you down..
In shocking testimony before a parliamentary committee on Wednesday, Dominic Cummings — the former chief adviser to the prime minister — admitted that the British government’s response to the coronavirus was wholly unacceptable.
“The truth is that senior minister, senior officials, senior advisers like me, fell disastrously short of the standards that the public has a right to expect of its Government in a crisis like this,” Cummings said. “When the public needed us most, the government failed.”
At the center of that disastrous response, Cummings said, was Johnson — who believed the virus was much ado about nothing, comparing it derisively to swine flu. The prime minister’s cavalier attitude towards the virus was such, according to Cummings, that Johnson wanted England’s chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, to inject him with Covid-19 on live TV just so he could show that it wasn’t a big deal.
“The view of various officials inside Number Ten was, if we have the Prime Minister chairing Cobra meetings and he just tells everyone “It is swine flu, don’t worry about it, I’m going to get Chris Whitty to inject me live on TV with coronavirus, so everyone realizes it is nothing to be to be frightened of,’ that would be, that would not help actually serious planning,” Cummings said.
