SIR – Every minute that Boris Johnson and his cabinet support Dominic Cummings, belittles the effort and sacrifice of millions of people living in Britain.

It dishonours the real integrity and selflessness of those remarkable individuals who put every basic human instinct to one side and suffer the horror of agreeing to allow their loved ones die alone.

It devalues and undermines the work of an NHS to whom Mr Johnson owes his life.

We received a letter from the Prime Minister, the instruction within was unequivocal, outlined in bold, with no reference to anything that might confuse the message,”Stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives”. We have returned the letter to him, it is not worth the paper it is written on.
