The new report on UK’s botched Covid strategy makes me so angry. It's basically a catalogue of missteps that led to 150,000 deaths

The initial report into the UK’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is a damning indictment of a government’s mishandling of “the greatest peacetime challenge in a century,” which led to off-the-scale suffering and 150,000 deaths.

The release of the highly anticipated parliamentary report offers no comfort whatsoever to the families and loved ones of those who have so far fallen victim to the Covid-19 virus in the UK. But it does make you angry. Very. Bloody. Angry.

Parliamentary reports rarely give rise to much emotion. However, reading through the 150 pages of ‘Coronavirus: Lessons Learned’, produced by the House of Commons and Science and Technology Committee and Health and Social Care Committee, I was reminded of just how inept the UK was in dealing with the killer virus, of the bitter recriminations of the PM’s former adviser, of ex-Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s over-reach and demise, and of the disaster that was the launch of the nation’s track-and-trace system, and I could feel my temperature rising.
