  • RT published this video item, entitled “‘UK govt diverting attention from failures’ – Galloway on new COVID strain” – below is their description.

    Long queues were formed outside supermarkets in London over concerns of food shortages in the run-up to Christmas. Fear has been fuelled by a combination of factors, including a potential no-deal Brexit, stricter lockdown regulations, and border closures because of the new coronavirus strain.

    RT spoke to former British MP George Galloway. He says it’s suspicious that the UK is reacting to the new strain of the virus only now when in fact, it was identified months ago.
