Boris Johnson asked scientists if people could kill Covid by blowing a hairdryer up their nose - after he watched a YouTube video suggesting this, the Covid Inquiry has heard.

The then-PM shared the clip on a WhatsApp group including government health experts and senior Number 10 officials. In a written statement to the Covid Inquiry, Dominic Cummings accused Mr Johnson of spreading misinformation during the pandemic. “A low point was when he circulated a video of a guy blowing a special hair dryer up his nose ‘to kill Covid’ and asked the CSA (Chief Scientific Adviser) and CMO (Chief Medical Officer) what they thought,” the former No10 adviser wrote.

today Mr Cummings gave more details on his claim that Mr Johnson had to be stopped from going to see Queen Elizabeth II in person on March 18 - five days before the first lockdown was announced, the Mirror reports.

He said No10 officials were prepared to prevent him getting into his car. “He rejected our advice,” Mr Cummings wrote. “I was desperate and said something like, ‘If you’ve got Covid and you kill the Queen you’re finished’. [No10 adviser] Cleo [Watson] said she would not let him get in the car.
