UK Nobel Laureate Scientist Slams ‘Shroud of Secrecy’ Drawn Over Gov't COVID-19 Response

The high-profile scientist’s comments join a wave of criticism that the UK government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing over its response to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which has so far infected over 306,000 people and resulted in 46,286 deaths, as of Sunday.

Sir Paul Nurse, a Nobel Prize laureate and chief executive and director of the Francis Crick Institute in London, slammed the ‘shroud of secrecy’ over the UK government’s decisions throughout the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in the country, arguing that the lack of transparency has harmed the nation’s response to the crisis.

Nurse, a chief scientific advisor to the European Commission and former president of the Royal Society, suggested that the panel of scientists, civil servants and politicians responsible for the nation’s response to the pandemic is a “black box”, and called for more openness and scrutiny in pivotal decisions.
