The Health Secretary Sajid Javid has apologised after suggesting that we need to learn to live with Covid rather than cowering from it.
Apparently families who have lost loved ones felt his remark was deeply insensitive and had caused deep hurt to them and those who stayed at home to protect society.
Mr Javid caught Covid last week even though he has had his two jabs but made a full recovery after experiencing very mild symptoms.
He tweeted, “Please if you haven’t yet, get your jab, as we learn to live with, rather than cower from, this virus.”
Unfortunately he was criticised by opposition MP’s and later removed the tweet on Sunday which I thought was a shame as I would have hoped he would have had the courage of his convictions and not cowered from a few “woke” MP’s, after all I took his remark to be an encouragement to people to get the jab so they don’t have to be frightened of Covid.
Politicians are not what they used to be, I can’t imagine Churchill if he were in the same situation removing a tweet.
