Does anyone know if he is okay? There has been no mention of him for a while now.

I hope he is getting better. I don't know

They were all often in close proximity, and Boris has just been taken to hospital.

BuffaloCauliflower Sun 05-Apr-20 21:34:22

I’m quite concerned we don’t seem to have heard anything. He seems such a smart, calm, capable man. I was always pleased to hear him.

LavenderQuartz Sun 05-Apr-20 21:34:35

oh blimey! if its taken hold of the government is there a contingency plan?

OatMilkAddict Sun 05-Apr-20 21:35:21

The contingency plan is Dominic Raab hmm

It's all gone quiet about Chis Witty hasn't it? I felt that he spoke a lot of sense, hope he's ok

Hopefully he isn't at his second home!

Frownette Sun 05-Apr-20 21:38:35

I don't think CW likes being in the limelight, he's a private man.

SeasonallySnowyPeasant Sun 05-Apr-20 21:41:15

I was wondering about him too. I hope he’s ok.

Legoandloldolls Sun 05-Apr-20 21:47:04

I was wondering about him too. He is undoubtedly somebody's loved one plus a great mind.

WinterCat Sun 05-Apr-20 21:48:39

I’ve been quite anxious about him from the start. He might be very private but in his line of work I imagine this is something he would want to be at the forefront of advising and answering questions.

Glenthebattleostrich Sun 05-Apr-20 21:51:39

I hope he's ok.

After some of the awful stuff on Facebook and Twitter I wouldn't blame him if he had decided to say sod the lot of you I'm staying at home for 2 weeks eating chocolate hobnobs, drinking beer in my pants and watching box sets.

SaigonSaigon Sun 05-Apr-20 21:57:27

I hope he's ok too. I like hearing him speak and want him back doing the daily CV broadcast. He's clearly a great mind. I'm even missing Boris doing that. I can't believe I've just said that, not a huge fan of his, but him speaking alongside CW and the Chief Science guy was reassuring and informative.

Toothsil Sun 05-Apr-20 22:00:17

He does at least seem to have been on Twitter a couple of days ago. Hope he's ok.

The contingency plan is Dominic Raab

Yep, the man who, during his time as Brexit Secretary, discovered, to his surprise, that Dover is an important port.

No doubt he will now embark on a crash course on viruses, in which he will discover that they make people ill.

starrynight19 Sun 05-Apr-20 22:02:03

Yes I was wondering that to. Not heard from him and didn’t he self isolate at the same time as Boris.
Although I agree all the comments he got on his appearance can’t have been easy to take.

covetingthepreciousthings Sun 05-Apr-20 22:10:17

Yes I'm also worried for him, I found him one of the more genuine speakers at the press conferences and hope he is recovering.

Same

AhoyMrBeaver Sun 05-Apr-20 22:42:54

I hope he's well and will be back doing the daily updates soon. There's no performance or drama with him, just facts and clarity, which I find very reassuring.

Russellbrandshair Sun 05-Apr-20 22:43:21

Yeah it’s a bit weird is t it?

taptonaria27 Sun 05-Apr-20 22:50:56

I'm worried about him too, as well as Boris. I was also worried about Jenny Harries until she appeared at today's briefing as I've thought she was very reassuring too.
Bad enough worrying about my nearest and dearest without adding in people I don't even know!

1happyhippie Sun 05-Apr-20 22:54:10

I also hope he is ok.
He has a nice calming way about him when he speaks. He seems a lovely guy.

Jinx2020 Sun 05-Apr-20 22:56:43

Hoping he is ok too - he seems a very wise, calm and rational man.

AmelieTaylor Sun 05-Apr-20 23:13:25

I have been concerned we haven’t been told ‘he’s still displaying mild symptoms’ like with BJ. Even more worried after the comment today about ‘losing a couple of people he really admired’ Worrying.

Lumene Sun 05-Apr-20 23:15:26

I thought he had appeared at a press conference since unisolating?
