It is well known that Boris Johnson did not take Corona seriously at the beginning. Now allegations are loud: Did Johnson consciously want to endanger the elderly?
London – The British have long since passed the 400 mark at a run. Now the incidence in the UK is already scratching the dubious 500 mark: on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, the 7-day incidence in the UK was 474.3, ten days ago it was 300. The health authorities reported 40,671 on Tuesday New infections, 19 people died. The biggest problem for the British: the Delta variant and the almost completely repealed Corona measures in the English part of Great Britain. Older people in particular are more affected by infection with the coronavirus – and that despite a vaccination.

Comments by a former top advisor to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson actually come at an inopportune time. Dominic Cummings, who left Boris Johnson’s team last year, said in a BBC interview that Johnson was originally unwilling to take corona measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. The dizzying corona numbers are proof enough.
UK Incidence: Was Johnson Consciously At Risk For Elderly People?
Specifically, Cummings accused Johnson of deliberately endangering the elderly. Johnson is also said to have denied that the health system in Great Britain was overwhelmed by the pandemic.
TV pictures and all media reports from Great Britain over the past 18 months speak a completely opposite language. The exploding corona numbers are just one example. The London uprising against the fall of the Corona measures is rehearsing another.
Despite the Corona case, Prime Minister Boris Johnson wanted Queen Elizabeth II.
And, according to Cummings, that shouldn’t be all, because as is well known, Johnson was taught after all, reports the Reuters news agency. As Cummings further explained, the prime minister wanted to meet 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II – even though it was known that the corona virus was bypassing his office at the time.
Boris Johnson wanted second lockdown – “the people who are dying are essentially all over 80”
Cummings goes even further with his allegations against the British prime minister. As the former government adviser said, according to Reuters, Johnson did not want to impose a second lockdown last fall because “the people who are dying are essentially all over 80”.
The highly trustworthy Reuters news agency explicitly stated in the report that the information has not been verified. A Johnson spokesman said the Prime Minister had “taken the necessary steps to protect lives and livelihoods, guided by the best of scientific advice.”
Opposition accuses Johnson of making decisions at the expense of general health
It was heard from the British opposition Labor Party that the Cummings revelations supported the case for a public inquiry. They are also “further evidence that the Prime Minister has repeatedly made the wrong decisions at the expense of general health”.
The former top advisor to the BBC said he had to stop Johnson from meeting the Queen. The answer he received – after successfully dissuading Johnson from the idea – was that Johnson had not thought the whole thing through properly.
So far, only individual passages from the interview have been published. The BBC plans to show the full interview on Tuesday. * Kreiszeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
