Matt Hancock leaves GMB viewers furious with coronavirus travel admission ‘Ridiculous!’

Good Morning Britain viewers were left furious today as Health Secretary Matt Hancock revealed there was a distinct lack of testing at airports for people coming into the UK from coronavirus hotspots. Morgan and Hancock engaged in a very heated debate over the subject and viewers also hit out at the health secretary online.


After Reid quizzed Hancock on the government’s exit strategy for the end of the lockdown, Morgan was keen to ask whether those still arriving in the UK were being tested for Covid-19.

Referencing the importance of testing, Morgan asked: “If it’s so crucial, why are we still having all our airports open, flying in from coronavirus hotspots?”

“We do of course have different treatment from different places-” Hancock began to responded, 

But Morgan interrupted: ” How many people are you testing at airports? How many have come in this week?”

“About 15,000,” Hancock replied, with Morgan hitting back: “So that’s about 15,000 a day without any test?”

Hancock’s admission left those watching at home furious and many took to Twitter to express their anger. 

“#GMB @piersmorgan great question on why are all these people coming in from hotspots untested, why!!!? We will never get out of this going round in circles,” one viewer raged.

Another added: “So we all have to stay in our houses to stop the spread, everyday there’s videos of the police abusing their powers in the name of this ‘lockdown’ but they don’t mind 15,000 people a day flying into the country? #GMB.”
