Prime Minister Boris Johnson has acknowledged that his government has made mistakes in fighting the coronavirus pandemic in the country, particularly with its commitment to easing restrictions in the first few weeks of the outbreak This Saturday, the country has more than 760 new cases and 61 deaths due to the disease added.
“Of course we were wrong about a lot of things. We keep learning,” Johnson said in an interview with Sky News on the first anniversary of his arrival in office. It should be remembered that Johnson was hospitalized last April for the illness.
In another retrospective interview with the BBC last night, Johnson complained that his government “did not understand the virus in the first few weeks and months” and underestimated the ability of the coronavirus to spread asymptomatically from person to person.
Back to balance: The UK government confirmed 767 new infections and 61 deaths this Saturday, for a total of 298,681 cases and 45,738 deaths. There are 1,445 hospitalized patients, 104 of whom are assisted breathing. The number of tests performed in the last 24 hours was 218,829.
