Politicians from around the world have criticized the UK for its “humiliating” and “neglected” response to the coronary pandemic.
Politicians, health experts and political commentators from Turkey to Australia condemned the UK’s response to the COVID-19 disease outbreak.
Britain now has more than 30,000 deaths associated with coronavirus, making it the most affected country in Europe and the second most affected country in the world, behind the United States.
Donald Trump used the UK as a warning example of how not to deal with the epidemic, while in Turkey the Anatolian News Agency called for the interrogation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
Elsewhere, former Australian High Commissioner to Britain Mike Run told the Sydney Morning Herald that Britain:
“dealt with the early stages with neglect.”
He described the UK’s response as
“a mess of mixed messages, weak organization and a feeble attitude that what was happening in Italy will not happen here.”
Where he made the comments of the former High Commissioner, which was published on Sunday, its headline:
“The greatest failure in one generation: Where did Britain sin?”
A similar article was published in the New York Times on Monday entitled:
“The UK needs a real government, not a Boris Johnson puppet government.”
“Dealing with the Covid-19 crisis in the UK is the most serious failure of science policy in a generation,”
Dr. Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of the Lancet medical journal, told the Financial Times.
