Michael Gove was asked on Sky News this morning whether reports that the UK sent 266,000 pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE) to China in February – when the Tories were ignoring the need to build PPE stocks, or ventilators, in readiness for the inevitable epidemic of the deadly coronavirus in this country.
