Kovid-19: British Health Minister resigns for non-compliance with health regulations

Kovid-19: British Health Minister resigns for non-compliance with health regulations

His position was unacceptable: British Health Minister Matt Hancock, who was at the heart of government action against the pandemic, resigned on Saturday for violating sanctions against COVID-19 during an affair with an adviser, which spread across all media.

Downing Street has announced that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will replace him with former finance minister Sajid Javed, 51. He will return to government after knocking on the door in early 2020 with dissatisfaction with the conditions imposed on the use of his portfolio.

The son of a former banker and former Pakistani bus driver is the first member of an ethnic minority who previously served as head of the interior ministry in Theresa May’s previous Conservative government.

The change came at a critical time for the United Kingdom, which has killed more than 128,000 people and is facing a contagious outbreak caused by the coronavirus that causes the highly contagious delta variant. The country is opposed to vaccinating as many people as possible with the aim of lifting the last sanctions still in force in July.

“Be honest”

“We owe it to ourselves to be honest with the people who sacrificed so much during this epidemic, when I disappointed them as I did by violating the guidelines,” Matt Hancock, 42, reiterated his apologies to Boris Johnson in his resignation letter.

Boris Johnson, who initially served as his health minister for three years, said he was sorry for his resignation. “You should keep your post very proud of what you have achieved, not only in tackling the epidemic, but also before Kovid-19 hits us,” he replied.

When confronted with this case, which was aired by all the media, the calls for resignation in the opposition increased as it did in the traditional camp in power. Eventually they improved the minister who was guilty of hypocrisy.

“It’s right that Matt Hancock should resign, but Boris Johnson should be fired,” Keer Stormer, the leader of the main opposition Labor party, responded on Twitter.

Conflict of interest?

The Labor Party has also questioned Gina Koladanjelo, a lobbyist known from Matt Hancock College and currently leading the exchange of stores chain of information founded by her husband, over the conflict of interest over the appointment to the ministry. The appointment was not announced before the press revealed.

Prior to the case, other embarrassing allegations had already targeted Matt Hong Kong, who gained prominence in Britain during the epidemic, holding regular daily government press conferences at the height of the First Wave.
