British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Tuesday that an independent public inquiry into the government’s handling of the Coronavirus outbreak will begin next spring.

Mr Johnson revealed the news in a new statement to MPs and told the House of Commons that oral evidence could then be collected to put “the government’s actions under the microscope.”

More than 127,000 people have died of Coronavirus in the UK since the outbreak began.

“To avoid such a tragedy, the state has an obligation to scrutinise its actions rigorously and frankly and to learn lessons in case it needs to be,” Mr Johnson said.
