On March 18, Mr. Cummings claimed that Boris Johnson said, “I will see the Queen. I do that every Wednesday. Damn that. I’ll visit her. “
Then Mr Cummings intervened, he said.
“If you give her coronavirus and she dies, what are you going to do?”
“There are people in this office who isolate. You could have coronavirus. I could have coronavirus, “Cummings reportedly told the prime minister.
“You cannot go to the queen. What if you visit her and give her the queen coronavirus? You obviously can’t go. “
Laura then asked how he had persuaded Mr. Johnson not to leave.
“I just said, ‘If you give her coronavirus and she dies, what are you going to do? [do]? You can not. You can’t risk that. This is completely crazy, ”he said.
“And [the PM] said – he just hadn’t really thought it through – ‘Yes … I can’t go’. “
