Open borders contributed to spread of Delta variant - Starmer

The first remarks on coronavirus at Prime Minister’s Questions come from the Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer.

He asks the PM if his decision to keep our borders open contributed to the spread of the Delta variant in this country.

Boris Johnson told MPs: “Captain hindsight needs to adjust his retrospectocope” because India was added to the red list on 23 April and was not identified until 28 April.

He says it was only identified as a variant of concern on 7 May.

Starmer responds, however, that India was reporting more than 100,000 cases a day weeks before India was added to the red list.
