Tory minister Robert Jenrick appeared on both Sky News and BBC News this morning to discuss the government’s coronavirus response. He told Sky that the UK has 12,000 ventilators – then the BBC, less than an hour later, that it has 8,000:
The 12,000 figure is entirely false.
On Sunday, Jenrick told the nation during the government’s daily press conference that 170 million face-masks had been delivered to NHS staff. They hadn’t.
Never trust a Tory – especially on the NHS.
