Matt Hancock was photographed leaving Downing Street with Gina Coladangelo on May 1

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock admits an assistant broke social distancing orientation after photos of him kissing were published in a British newspaper.

He said he told the “disappointed people” he himself had nominated for the position after photos surfaced of him with Gina Coladangelo, and “sorry.”

Since then, the Labor Party has put heavy pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to sack Hancock, saying the situation is “untenable”.

But people close to the prime minister say Boris Johnson has accepted Hancock’s apology and has “closed the case.”
