BBC’S Laura Kuenssberg demanded Boris Johnson explain what areas his Government got wrong in its response to coronavirus. During a BBC interview, Ms Kuenssberg insisted that hindsight was a useful tool to ensure that in the event of a second spike the same errors won’t happen. Ms Kuensberg argued the Government’s response was one of delay, to which Mr Johnson firmly denied.
Mr Johnson said: “If you look at the timing of every single advice we got from our advisers from SAGE, you will find whenever we were told to take a particular step, actually we stuck that advice.”
Ms Kuenssberg hit back: “Maybe your scientists were wrong?”
Mr Johnson admitted this was a possibility before taking a pause and replying.
He said: ” Well laura maybe, there were things we could have done differently.”
