Boris Johnson has been urged to act after an Indian COVID variant with potentially worrying mutations was found in the UK.
There are fears the variant, which features two mutations, could evade current vaccines, as well as immunity gained from previous infection.
Scientists said the appearance of the “double mutant” strain was a “disaster” and branded the prime minister “crazy” for still considering a trade trip to India later this month.
Experts (and the likes of me) have questioned why India has not yet been added to the red list of countries given the concern over the strain.
120,000 cases a day, a variant that could nullify the effectiveness of all the vaccines, and our Muppet in Chief won’t red list India.
Money before lives again Boris?
