LONDON (Reuters)-British Health Minister Sajid Javid was accused of insulting coronavirus victims on Sunday after urging people to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and “learn to live with this virus instead of flinching.” .
Javid succeeded Matt Hancock as Minister of Health last month after his predecessor stepped down for violating COVID regulations by kissing an assistant in the office. His work began by urging people to learn to coexist with the virus.
As one of the countries with the highest official death toll from COVID, the United Kingdom has transformed its strategy to fight the coronavirus from restrictive measures to limit its spread to an open society, hoping that vaccines can protect most people from serious diseases.
There are many cases, but the use of the COVID-19 vaccine is also high, and officials believe that this shift is needed to help businesses in industries such as hotels and night economy.
Javid wrote on Twitter on Saturday that he has recovered after testing positive for the new crown virus. “Thanks to the amazing vaccine, the symptoms are very mild,” he said.
“Please—if you haven’t—accept your injection, because we have learned to live with this virus instead of flinching.”
The deputy leader of the Labor Party, Angela Rayner, was one of several lawmakers from the opposition party and one of the people who lost their families due to the pandemic. She criticized him for using the term “crunken”.
She tweeted: “127,000 people have died from this virus. If it were not for the catastrophic failure of your government, tens of thousands would still be here.”
“So how dare you slander those who try to protect themselves and their families.”
