The British government has confirmed that Public Health England will be scrapped and replaced with an organisation that will be in charge of dealing with pandemics and biological weapons. Health secretary Matt Hancock announced that baroness Dido Harding, who was appointed as interim head of the new National Institute for Health Protection, will also be in charge of finding a permanent head. Sky News reports that the decision follows several reports that cabinet was not impressed by the way the PHE handled the Coronavirus pandemic.
