If there’s one thing that could make the coronavirus pandemic more unbearable, it’s an unexpected overlap with Brexit.
Just when we thought we’d escaped three years of soundbites and ridiculous funding promises, they’re back.
During Matt Hancock’s briefing yesterday (following his swift recovery from Covid-19), he said a line that sounded very familiar to many.
When being quizzed on the lack of coronavirus tests, after repeated promises to scale up daily amount of people receiving them, he began outlining the current situation.
Hancock promised “100,000 tests a day” (at the moment, the UK is struggling to clear 10,000). And he also discussed the infamous 3.5 million order of “antibody” tests, which are supposed to show if people have previously had coronavirus.
