When crisis is over, there must be justice – and a reckoning
An NHS doctor who wrote to Boris Johnson with an urgent warning that the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) would lead to needless deaths among NHS staff has died of COVID-19.
Dr Abdul Mabud Chowdhury, who worked at Homerton hospital in east London, had begged Johnson to provide PPE for every NHS worker in the UK – but the shortages have continued in spite of government claims to the contrary.
Dr Chowdhury, aged just 53, died on Wednesday. He leaves behind his wife and two children.
When this crisis is over, the Establishment must not be allowed to resume ‘business as usual’ and sweep the deaths caused by the arrogance of Johnson and his government under the carpet.
There must be justice for Dr Chowdhury and the others who have died and will die because of Tory laziness and callousness – and a reckoning.
