Joint Inquiry Chairs Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP and Rt Hon Greg Clark MP said:

“The Joint Inquiry is examining the lessons that can be drawn from the handling of the pandemic, and applied now and in the future.

How Government and its agencies dealt with and responded to early intelligence about covid-19 is critical to our investigations.
