Boris Johnson ‘said it was best to ignore’ Covid at start of pandemic and ‘warned of overreaction’


Boris Johnson said the UK should “ignore” the spread of Covid-19, an explosive account of the start of the pandemic claims.

“The general view was it is just hysteria. It was just like a flu,” a source told the BBC’s political editor Laura Kuenssberg, saying there was a “lack of concern and energy”.

The prime minister was even heard to say of coronavirus: “The best thing would be to ignore it,” the report claims – as it became clear there was no ‘Emergency break-the-glass’ plan to unveil.
