In a series of tweets, Piers called out the Health Secretary for being “uninformed” on vital information.

What did Piers say?

His first read: “Wow – the Health Secretary doesn’t know how many NHS staff have died in this crisis???!! This is shameful. You should be informed of every single one @MattHancock and know the exact number every time you’re asked at these briefings.”

Genuinely can’t believe what I just witnessed.

Another said: “The Health Secretary @MattHancock cares so much about our NHS heroes that he doesn’t bother to find out how many of them have died fighting coronavirus before leading the Govt daily press briefing. Genuinely can’t believe what I just witnessed.”

Piers later added: “It’s 31, @MattHancock – that’s the number of NHS workers who have currently died as a result of coronavirus. Why do I know that but you don’t?”

And it appears some Twitter users agreed with Piers.

Others appeared to agree with Piers

Backing the TV host, one wrote: “No he is right… [he] should know how many of his people have died. Disgrace.”

Another added: “He actually sounded bored during that press conference, terrible performance.”

Piers hasn’t been afraid to voice his opinions on the ongoing pandemic to date.

He recently let rip at a cyclist who broke social distancing rules during a live GMB interview with Health Minister Edward Argar.
