Dr Abdul Mabud Chowdhury warned of fatal consequences of government’s failure to provide protective equipment to NHS staff – then died of coronvirus. Hancock’s condescension when confronted by his son is appalling
The appalling Matt Hancock was confronted this morning during an LBC interview by Intisar Chowdhury, the son of Dr Abdul Mabud Chowdhury. Dr Chowdhury died of COVID-19 after warning the government that its failure to provide adequate PPE (personal protective equipment) was going to cost the lives of health workers.
But Hancock didn’t only refuse to acknowledge that there had been failures.
Instead, he went on to condescend disgustingly to the bereaved Intisar Chowdhury, telling him he’d been ‘very brave’ to speak out – and how complicated the ‘logistics’ of delivering PPE are:
More than 150 healthcare workers have died. The government continues to understate the number – and Hancock’s arrogance makes the Tories’ arrogance even more disgraceful.
