‘Little evidence’ coronavirus passed on at work, insists man who caught coronavirus at work

Matt Hancock on catching coronavirus at work

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has revealed this week that there is little evidence that coronavirus infections are passed on in offices and workplaces, despite previously catching the disease himself in the workplace.

Not only did he catch it and potentially pass it on to his colleagues in the workplace, but his boss ended up in intensive care in hospital, after – you guessed it – catching it in the workplace.

As employers continue to question the safety of returning to the office en masse while infections are still rising, the health secretary has assured the nation that there is absolutely nothing to worry about.

Speaking earlier today he told reporters, “It’s fine, there’s no way you can catch it at work.

“I mean yes, obviously I managed to catch it at work at the height of the pandemic when we really should have been on our toes with social distancing and other safety measures.

“And granted, yes, a few other MPs might have caught it while at work including the junior health minister herself, but again, that doesn’t prove anything.

“Oh and the Prime Minister, I suppose he caught it at work too, and ended up in intensive care in hospital with an oxygen feed helping him to breath, but you know, other than that, I can’t see any evidence whatsoever of this virus being transmitted in the workplace.”

“In fact, from what I have heard, the only place where is it actually possible to catch this dreadful virus anymore is anywhere where you are not actively contributing to the economic recovery, like at home.”
