UK’s Johnson Calls Protective Gear Shortages in NHS ‘Enraging’

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Wednesday he was frustrated to see the National Health Service struggling to obtain personal protective equipment for workers dealing with the pandemic.

Johnson, who answered lawmakers’ questions for the first time since falling ill with COVID-19 in April, praised “hundreds of thousands” of people involved in the logistics of supplying billions of PPE items across the country.

The government said last week that 49 frontline health care workers had died in the country since the start of the outbreak, but the Guardian newspaper said the number of deaths was likely several times higher.
