Regional health minister in Murcia refuses to resign after paper reports he received Covid vaccine early
Regional Parliament, Cartagena, Murcia
The regional health minster in Murcia, Dr. Manuel Villegas, refused to resign this morning after jumping the Covid vaccine queue, and saw no moral wrong in doing that before all the staff in the hospitals he manages, or the old people suffering in care homes and coronavirus wards.
Update: Villegas did resign later on in the day, at a 6 p.m. press conference with the regional First Minister, López Miras.
