Britain will launch a public inquiry into the government's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday.

"This process will place the state's actions under the microscope," he told parliament. The inquiry will have the backing of legislation giving it far-reaching powers, Johnson said.
