Chief medical officer for England and chief UK medical adviser is giving evidence all day
Good morning. Prof Sir Chris Whitty, the chief medical officer for England, and chief medical adviser for the UK, is giving evidence all day to the Covid inquiry. The session starts at 10am, but we have already had an insight into one of the points he might make from a witness statement from Sir Patrick Vallance published by the inquiiry last night. In it, Vallance says Whitty regrets saying “fatigue” might stop people putting up with a long lockdown.
