Alan Jones defends position on coronavirus following ‘absolute rubbish claim’

Sky News host Alan Jones has defended himself against the “absolute rubbish” claim he argues coronavirus is nothing more than a flu. “I note a newspaper story that says that I have always argued that the coronavirus is nothing more than a flu and therefore how irresponsible am I,” Mr Jones said. “That, of course, is absolute rubbish. Mr Jones said he has regularly quoted the Prime Minister himself in an address to the nation from March 15 2020. In that speech the prime minister said “the truth is that while many people will contract this virus that it’s clear, just as people get the flu each year, it is a more severe condition than the flu, but for the vast majority … around 8 in 10 is our advice, it will be a mild illness and it will pass.” “I have never said the virus was only a flu I’ve merely argued the prime minister’s position,” Mr Jones said. “This business about me saying coronavirus was nothing more than a flu is not borne out by my persistent references to the Prime Minister’s own statement to the nation on March 15 last year as I’ve indicated above.”
