Boris Johnson wanted to be infected with Covid on live TV, former aide claims

Dominic Cummings, the former No 10 aide, has claimed that PM Boris Johnson offered to be injected with Covid live on television to reassure the public and ’show it’s nothing to be scared of,’ before he contracted the virus. Cummings gave evidence on the government’s handling of the pandemic, stressing that actions from ministers and officials ’fell disastrously short of the standards’ expected.

Some guy with no evidence claims something politically beneficial to himself. Sure... I believe this as much as I believe the claims that trump said he wanted to nuke hurricanes.

Maybe I am in a very small minority here but good for him. As we look back at Covid it is slowly coming out that lockdowns did essentially nothing except causing economic disaster (which we are just starting to pay for...enjoy the inflation all). Masks give a 1.7 percent difference in transmission rate (per cdc data) and we know that the fear created due to covid actually damaged people's mental health (not to mention destroyed societies ability to function). He was willing to put himself at risk to help and provide his countrymen a little strength. Good for him. Churchill used to take huge risks during the bombings (for those wondering bombs are far more deadly than covid) for the same reason and is still cheered for it.

So before we knew it was potentially this bad and one option was to just let it happen, he said "if we need to show the public it's not harmful, I'll show them myself". Which is a bit outlandish, but if they were brainstorming ideas and working out what they'd do in various situations... If it did turn out to be a bit of a cold, that would have reassured the public in the face of press hype. The problem is we don't have a proper context and it's a guy who's job / life it is to bullsh1t.

I thought everyone hated Cummings. He was the anti christ a few months ago. Why is everyone taking his word now?

"Former aide". I imagine that casts some doubt on his motives, right?
