The Covid Inquiry

Wednesday, 12 May

A public inquiry is coming, but not until the spring of 2022. Boris Johnson promises lessons will be learnt, but what should the scope of the inquiry be? We speak to Professor Sir Ian Kennedy who has chaired public inquiries and Newsnight’s Nick Watt on the political fallout. The nurse who was given a shout-out by Dua Lipa at the BRITS tells us how she found out about the honour. And the government announces beefed up measures to regulate social media companies to protect us from online harm. The BBC’s tech correspondent Jane Wakefield guides us through them. Today’s Newscast was made by Maz Ebtehaj with Danny Wittenberg and Alix Pickles. The Studio Director was Ben Andrews. Assistant Editor was Emma Close. Dino Sofos is the Editor.
