    England Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty attacked, people horrified

    In a shocking incident in UK today, everyone is ‘horrified’ by the footage of two thugs attacking Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer of England. Officials are looking at the protection available to him.

    A 16-second clip has since emerged showing the moment the two thugs put the epidemiologist in a headlock.

    The Home Secretary blasted the yobs’ ‘appalling’ behaviour after they grabbed Chris Whitty in St James’s Park, central London, on Sunday night.

    The men cheer and yell as they tackle the top scientist while continuing to film his stunned reaction.

    The video in the background showed a Metropolitan Police squad van, but it is not clear if any officers were in there.

    Members of the public have rounded on the force and asked why the men were only ‘spoken to’ and not arrested.

    The attack also sparked calls for scientific officers in UK to get the personal protection offered to senior politicians after they were launched into the limelight by the pandemic.

    It is the second time Prof Whitty has been attacked this month after a man harassed him in the street in Oxford and accused him of lying about coronavirus.

    He was also rounded on by a young thug in February, who uploaded his video to TikTok and was later scolded by his mother.
