Eleven pandemic exercises were carried out before Covid, government admits

Eleven pandemic exercises were conducted between 2015 and 2019, the government has revealed – but it is refusing to release the results on national security grounds.

Health secretary Matt Hancock has been accused of “covering up secret reports” during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The trials included Exercise Alice, which in 2016 tested the UK’s readiness to cope with Middle East Respiratory syndrome (Mers), another type of coronavirus.
