UK’s Johnson Finally Agrees to Meet COVID-bereaved Group

September 27, 2021

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will finally meet with members of the COVID-19 Bereaved Families for Justice campaigning group, who have criticized his handling of the coronavirus pandemic for more than a year.

Johnson’s Downing Street office confirmed that the prime minister will hold a “private meeting” with members of the group Tuesday.

The group said family members will tell the stories of how their loved ones caught the virus and reiterate their calls for a statutory inquiry into the pandemic to start soon.

The group has also asked for the meeting to take place outside and that social distancing is observed.

Jo Goodman, co-founder of Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice, said it has “over a year since the prime minister first said he would meet us and in that time over 100,000 people across the country have lost their lives with COVID-19.”
