Many of Tuesday’s papers focus on the evidence given to the Covid inquiry by Sir Patrick Vallance, who served as the government’s chief scientific adviser during the pandemic. The Daily Mirror leads with reports Rishi Sunak, then chancellor under Boris Johnson, said the government should allow deaths from the virus to “soar” rather than impose new restrictions in autumn 2020. The allegation was made in Sir Patrick’s diary entry from October 2020, claiming Mr Johnson’s special adviser, Dominic Cummings, had said: “Rishi thinks just let people die and that’s OK”. The inquiry is due to hear from Mr Sunak soon.
