The Prime Minister held a COVID briefing on 4 January 2022
The speakers were:
- Boris Johnson, Prime Minister
- Professor Sir Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer, England
- Sir Patrick Vallance, Chief Scientific Advisor
Boris Johnson told the Downing Street news conference: How absolutely crazy it is, absolutely crazy, that there are two million slots this week for people to get vaccinated and yet the majority of people in ICU for Covid are not vaccinated – 61%. “It is sad but it is also a huge opportunity for us to correct it.”
In response to a press question, Professor Sir Chris Whitty stated he was “saddened” by the numbers of unvaccinated people in intensive care. “The great majority of them are not anti-vaxxers in ordinary sense with some really weird ideas”.
