The Sunday Times over the weekend caused a storm of public opinion with an article criticizing `38 days of sleepwalking into disaster` of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's administration.

The article was published in the In-depth section, revealing that Prime Minister Boris Johnson missed 5 emergency meetings at high levels to discuss plans to prepare for dealing with Covid-19 in January and February. It immediately became an issue.

`You have no way to fight if the Prime Minister is not there. And what you know is that Prime Minister Johnson has not chaired any meetings. He prefers holidays at home. He does not

Prime Minister Boris Johnson thanked the British National Health Service (NHS) in a video posted on April 12.

The article’s authors argue that Prime Minister Johnson seemed only concerned about Brexit in January, distracted by his complicated personal life, including divorce and engagement, in February.

The article asserts that Mr. Johnson’s government `just stood by` as the number of deaths and nCoV infections in China continued to increase in January and February, and `missed the opportunity` to purchase test kits.

Assistants and ministers in Prime Minister Johnson’s government immediately sought to protect him and themselves.

The agency said Health Secretary Matt Hancock was first warned about Covid-19 on January 3, reported to Prime Minister Johnson on January 7 and then informed the House of Commons on January 23.

To prove it, the British Ministry of Health cited the January 23 tweet of Richard Horton, editor of the Lancet medical journal, which urged `caution` about a deadly virus about to attack the UK, because

Therefore, this agency affirms that the British government’s step-by-step response is reasonable and correct.

`The government always listens to scientific advice,` the British Ministry of Health affirmed.

However, controversy flared up when Horton spoke out against it, accusing the British government of `deliberately rewriting history in its Covid-19 misinformation campaign`.

“When you see people who are supposed to be independent medical advisers to the government saying things that are not true just to shore up a government whose confidence is rapidly collapsing, you have to say that those advisers have lost their

Criticism was even more pointed at the British government when Michael Gove, Minister of the British Cabinet Office, also confirmed that Prime Minister Johnson did not attend 5 meetings on Covid-19.

`Most emergency meetings are not attended by the Prime Minister,` Gove said.

Gove explained that it does not matter who chairs the above meetings, the Prime Minister’s presence is not absolutely necessary and such meetings are usually run by the relevant ministers, with all content being reported to

Gove emphasized that Mr. Johnson was the `supporter` during the first phase of the response to Covid-19.

However, these explanations did not satisfy critics, who insisted that Britain was facing the biggest threat since World War II, not a winter flood in the Midlands.

The British government has been criticized for its slow response and underestimating the threat from Covid-19.

Sun commentator Trevor Kavanagh said that after the pandemic is over and investigations are conducted, Prime Minister Johnson and his government will certainly have to answer many difficult questions about the response to Covid-19.

But medical experts at Public Health England at that time advised that Covid-19 was no more serious than a normal seasonal flu.

Public Health England has also failed to build a stockpile of personal protective equipment such as masks, protective gear and gloves, despite a 2016 exercise showing that this should be a priority when responding to the outbreak.

The agency insists that Britons need to be protected by a `herd immunity` policy, exposing 60% of the population early to achieve short-term immunity.

`You will have to change a lot of things after Covid-19 passes. That change must start with Public Health England,` Kavanagh emphasized.
