    *Boris Johnson’s former adviser Dominic Cummings is set to give evidence into the handling of the pandemic in front of the joint Commons Health and Social Care and Science and Technology Committees today.
  • *Cummings left Downing Street last year after an internal power struggle and has been increasingly outspoken about the "catastrophe" that is, he says, No. 10's handling of the virus. *Cummings has warmed up for his appearance before MPs by posting a series of more than 60 tweets criticising the Government’s decision-making in the early days of the pandemic.
  • *The inquiry will likely look at decision-making in the early days of the pandemic, the timing of lockdowns, herd immunity and PPE procurement.
