UK's Gove: I did not hear PM Johnson say "let the bodies pile high"
- United Kingdom
Senior British minister Michael Gove said on Monday he did not hear Prime Minister Boris Johnson make a comment that he would rather bodies piled "high in their thousands" than order a third coronavirus lockdown.
Asked about the remarks, as reported by the Daily Mail newspaper, Gove told parliament: "The idea that he would say any such thing I find incredible. I was in that room, I never heard language of that kind."
