Top 7 Takeaways from Boris Johnson’s Two Days of Testimony at The Covid Inquiry

After two gruelling days of giving evidence, former Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s time at the COVID-19 Inquiry is up.

Here are some of the main takeaways from his 10 hours in the witness box: He made mistakes, and he is sorry.

He didn’t always have enough information about the risks.

Boasting about shaking hands with COVID patients was a bad idea.

‘Eat Out to Help Out’ seemed like a good idea at the time.

Matt Hancock did a good job.

Partygate was exaggerated.

Having been in intensive care with the virus himself, he understands the devastation it caused.
