In an interview with the UK’s public inquiry into the COVID-19 pandemic on Monday, former Chief Scientific Advisor Patrick Vallance testified that Boris Johnson struggled to understand much of the science during his time as Prime Minister. Vallance explained that he and others encountered repeated difficulties in getting Johnson to comprehend the science, but also mentioned that leaders in many countries faced similar problems in understanding scientific evidence and advice.

He is scheduled to address the inquiry before Christmas.
