UK’s early Covid response was a failure, report says – BBC News

The UK’s failure to do more to stop Covid spreading early in the pandemic was one of the worst ever public health failures, a report by MPs says.

The government’s approach – backed by its scientists – was to try to manage the situation and in effect achieve “herd immunity” by infection, it said.

This led to a delay in introducing the first lockdown which cost lives.

But the report said there had been successes too – in particular the vaccination programme, which was described as “one of the most effective initiatives in UK history”.
