Whitty warns of ‘net disadvantage’ in moving vaccines to younger people
There would be “a net disadvantage” in transferring Covid vaccines from older people to younger members of the public who are at lower risk from the virus, England’s Chief Medical Officer has said.Professor Chris Whitty pointed out there is not an endless supply of vaccines and the aim is to firstly protect the most vulnerable from coronavirus, which “is very heavily predicated by age”.
Former prime minister's aide Dominic Cummings says that Prime Minister Boris Johnson regarded Covid-19 as a "scare story" in February 2019 and said that he would have Professor Chris Whitty inject him with the virus on live TV to demonstrate that it was nothing to be afraid of.

Crowds at this summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo have been capped at 50 per cent of a venue’s capacity, up to a maximum of 10,000.Spectators will be asked to refrain from shouting or even talking loudly, and to travel directly to the venue and return home immediately afterwards. However, they are unlikely to be asked to prove they are negative for Covid-19, or fully vaccinated.
