Times Radio presenter Reya Al-Salahi said this morning that taking a lateral flow test is a small price to pay in order to attend a party this Christmas.
UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid said yesterday, that everyone attending a Christmas party should consider testing themselves before setting off. Appearing on Good Morning Britain earlier, Al-Salahi said:
“I’d love nothing more than to be able to be rubbing shoulders at a normal Christmas do, perhaps not snogging in a corner anywhere, but you know just getting back to some semblance of normality.
But we’re not living in normal times. And the idea that to do the absolute bare minimum of taking a lateral flow test before going to a Christmas party is ruining your fun, seems completely bizarre.
It’s such a small price to pay in order to be able to have a Christmas do. I would want people to have vaccine passports in order to be at a Christmas party that I was at.
And if that wasn’t the case, to be frank I wouldn’t be there.”
