Health Secretary Matt Hancock has hit out at a landlady who evicted her paramedic tenant over fears he would spread Covid-19.
Joseph Hoar, who works for South Western ambulance service, said he was asked to leave his home by text message.
When you work as a paramedic for the NHS and you get evicted over a text by your land lady. Because of this I now won't be able to work my 12hr night shift tomorrow, so that means one less paramedic on the road. At these unprecedented times we need our NHS demand more than ever. pic.twitter.com/gfxbIykElq- Joseph Hoar (@joseph_hoar) March 21, 2020
Speaking on LBC, Mr Hancock described the incident as "totally outrageous" and said he was "shocked that somebody did it".
