A spokesman for the justice group for Covid-19 Bereaved Families said in a statement to Granthshala: “This is deeply disturbing to those of us who, instead of responding to yesterday’s devastating news, considered the prime minister a luxury. Lost loved ones while painting in the villa. Brought up. If the prime minister wants his condolences to have any meaning, he must draw up a new timeline for the ensuing investigation.”
The lawmakers said one of the biggest failures of the government’s approach was an early policy to contain the spread of COVID at the beginning of the pandemic, rather than stop it from spreading completely.
In its statement, the COVID-19 Bereaved Family Justice Group said: “Following yesterday’s report, bereaved families across the UK will be waking up this morning to see if their loved ones can still be with them if Johnson’s government has decided to separate- Different decisions were taken. Meanwhile. Johnson himself is resting on the beach.”
The statement said the report “has only scratched the surface of the country in the past two years,” criticized Johnson for dragging his heels on a public inquiry into the pandemic and called for an investigation to be launched immediately.
Conservative Party co-chair Oliver Dowden apologized to families who lost loved ones in the prime minister’s absence and said he welcomed the report.
“Of course, I’m sorry, as is the prime minister,” Dowden told Sky News. “We are sorry for the loss to all those families.”
Dowden acknowledged that the government would “do some things differently,” but said “this was an unprecedented crisis … there is no perfect rule book that we can follow.”
He said the government would “do a thorough analysis and give a full response to the report.”
