Boris Johnson, the former U.K. prime minister, struggled with understanding some concepts and data during his time in office. This was evident in his difficulty comprehending particular graphs and pieces of information. However, it is suggested that the prime minister’s difficulty did not originate from a unique inability but rather from the challenging nature of the work involved.
The U.K.’s COVID-19 death toll in Europe is one of the highest, with over 232,000 people recorded as dying from the virus. The investigation into Boris Johnson’s actions during the pandemic is set to begin before Christmas, led by retired Judge Heather Hallett. The public inquiry was agreed to by Johnson in late 2021 under significant pressure from grieving families who expressed dissatisfaction with the evidence surrounding his actions. The investigation is expected to last for three years.
