Watch: Matt Hancock Laughs His Way Through Coronavirus Questioning

As the coronavirus death tolls continue to rise in the UK, the British Government have found themselves in the middle of a PR disaster in recent days. The Dominic Cummings scandal has dominated the news cycle, despite the best efforts of the Tory Party to change the topic of national conversation.

One such effort came in the early release of details surrounding the country's 'trace and track' system. It was thought this would be released on June 1st, the same date as the accompanying app, with some feeling this is an effort to take the attention away from Dominic Cummings and his questionable eyesight.

That was the question put to Health Secretary Matt Hancock on Sky News this morning, who went on to laugh his way through the interview.

It's priceless, I'm normally accused of delaying these things and bringing them in too slowly. I committed to getting this system in in mid-May. You can't accuse of me of rushing it and delaying it...

I can't quite work out if you're telling me we've gone too slow or too fast, I think we've gone at just the right pace.

We brought it in at just the right speed. The app is helpful and it is working on the Isle of Wight. The reason we haven't brought it in right at the start is that asking people to isolate even if they're healthy because the NHS has got in contact, that is quite a big change.


Certainly not a good look.


Considering the crisis that continues to grip the UK, many were appalled with the demeanour displayed by Hancock when discussing a subject that has the potential to cost or save lives.


This came soon after Hancock was presumably unaware of the irony of telling the British public to stay at home in order to do their 'civic duty'.
