Boris Johnson could have saved thousands of lives by locking down days earlier – report
The Daily Mirror says Boris Johnson is under pressure to bring forward the public inquiry into how the pandemic was handled after a report by MPs condemned errors that cost thousands of lives.
A joint probe by the Commons health and science committees found ministers made a “serious error” by taking a “gradual and incremental” approach to lockdowns last year.
Experts said shutting down a week earlier than March 23, 2020, would have cut the 40,000 death toll in the first wave “by at least half”.
