A day after apologizing for not wearing a mask while visiting a hospital, the Prime Minister was seen taking public transport without a mask, Mirror has been informed.
On Thursday, eyewitnesses reportedly saw a masked Boris Johnson taking a train from Oxford Road station to Warrington Bank Quay station in Manchester and took a picture of the incident.
a witness told Mirror When they got on the car, they saw that the car was half closed.
The witness said a large group, including the prime minister, boarded the blocked section of the train, adding that the group was under surveillance.
“There were people around the prime minister and some of his men were not wearing masks – unlike the rest of the passengers,” the witness said.
When asked about the incident, Downing Street declined to comment.
Current government guidance says wear a mask when you’re in contact with people you wouldn’t normally meet in enclosed and crowded places – such as on public transport.
Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM) guidance is similar, which states that passengers should wear a “face covering, unless exempted”, when using the Metrolink network, bus stations or interchanges or Ring and Ride services.
“If you do not, you may be unable to travel and you may be fined,” the TfGM website says.
Last week, Mr Johnson apologized for “accidentally” not wearing a mask when he visited Hexham General Hospital in Northumberland earlier this month.
“I accidentally left the room without wearing it,” he said. “I put it on as soon as I realized I made a mistake. I apologize for that.”
He said he remained without a mask for “hard 30 seconds”. Number 10 repeatedly defended her, saying she followed the hospital’s guidance – despite the hospital’s guidance that visitors should wear masks in all areas.
The prime minister was also photographed without a mask at the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow, while he sat next to 95-year-old Sir David Attenborough, who was wearing a mask.
In response to the picture, a Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister has followed the Covid-19 guidance in Cop26. Cop26’s guidance does not require attendees and delegates to wear face masks when seated”.
