JEREMY HUNT CALLS FOR TIGHTER BORDER CONTROLS FOLLOWING DISCOVERY OF SIX P.1 VARIANT CASES

Former health secretary Jeremy Hunt has said the discovery of six cases of the Brazilian P1 variant of the coronavirus in the UK showed the need for tighter controls.

“Absolutely we have got to look at what has gone wrong,” he told BBC Radio 4’s The World at One programme.

“It shows that it needs to be tightened up still further because if we are going to protect the road map out of lockdown then the name of the game is going to be stop new variants coming in, some of which may end up being immune to the new vaccines.

“Where we need to get to is a much, much more thorough combination of test and trace and genetic sequencing so we are not just testing the people who have been near someone who tested positive, but we also are working out where the original infection happened and which variant it is.

“You can only do that if you bring the cases right down.”
