Country’s inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic begins

The United Kingdom’s COVID-19 Inquiry, which aims to understand how well the country responded to the pandemic and what could’ve been improved, officially opened on 21st July with its first investigation.

The Inquiry is Chaired by The Right Honourable Baroness Heather Hallett DBE, who has set the Terms of Reference, as well as a detailed timeline of what the inquiry will cover when.

Opportunities for members of the public to give evidence to the inquiry will take the form of a ‘listening exercise’, which will be announced at a later date. The strength of the inquiry will be measured by the quality of evidence it receives, so anyone who feels they have useful evidence to provide should do so when the listening exercise begins.
