Covid lockdown LATEST – Boris Johnson set to focus on ‘data, not dates’ ahead of easing coronavirus rules in England


Countries in the western world relied too heavily on flu pandemic planning in the early part of the Covid-19 outbreak, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

In response to Tory Holyrood leader Ruth Davidson, the First Minister said: “No amount of preparedness for a flu pandemic would have been sufficient in the face of the situation that we actually encountered.

“However well prepared we’d been for flu, it became clear quite quickly that we were dealing with something of a completely different nature.”

She added: “I actually think the more valid criticism of the Scottish Government, and indeed governments across the western world, is that we relied, in the early stages of the pandemic, too much on flu preparations and perhaps hadn’t done enough to prepare for the experiences of Sars-type outbreaks.”
