At the outset of this Coronavirus pandemic the British public and NHS frontline workers were assured there was adequate PPE, then followed the ongoing pantomime and failure in rolling it out.
Now scrubs promised from Turkey during Saturday’s Coronavirus Daily Briefing we were told would arrive on Sunday, are nowhere to be seen.
Chris Hobson of NHS Providers, when interviewed on Sunday immediately after the Government’s Coronavirus Daily Briefing revealed that when an order for 200,000 gowns from China arrived last week there were only 20,000. So did someone leave a ‘0’ off the order?
