Hancock’s 19 was a lie when it was uttered this morning. The reality was almost double his ‘admission’
The confirmed number of deaths of NHS staff has reached 36. Julie Omar, Sara Trollope and Gareth Roberts – all nurses – died this week of COVID-19.
Two Filipino porters died at Oxford University Hospitals, but their names have not yet been released, although the hospital has announced their deaths.
All 36 died before Health Secretary Matt Hancock claimed this morning that 19 NHS workers had died of the virus.
Hancock’s false claim is still being repeated several times an hour by the BBC, even though the information showing its falsehood was easily available hours ago.
The fallen NHS heroes are also casualties of the Tories’ determination to obscure the truth and avoid their guilt.
