The experts leading the government’s coronavirus strategy have not been tested for the virus, the SKWAWKBOX can reveal.
In spite of their regular – and public – close proximity to Boris Johnson, who has tested positive for the virus today, Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty and Chief Scientific Officer Patrick Vallance have not taken tests to establish their status.
The SKWAWKBOX understands that neither are currently showing symptoms. Health Secretary Matt Hancock has, however, tested positive.
The government’s failure to follow the World Health Organisation’s recommendation to trace and test all contacts of those infected goes right to the top.
