Once again I fear you are letting your dislike of this government, and the particular individual concerned, cloud your judgement. Both parents were infected and it is reported that Cummings himself, whilst in isolation in Durham, was unable to even get out of bed and his wife was struggling with her breathing. They could not have predicted how badly either would suffer and the son is only 5 years old. Ensuring his safety with someone close by to look after him if necessary was a reasonable priority (and in keeping with government guidelines as articulated by the deputy CMO) and I suspect you would have taken the same action if necessary had it been you.
Whatever your views of this man, and I have my own, this cynical storm in the media seeking his sacking is another example of using this pandemic as a vehicle to further political agendas of an entirely unconnected flavour. We all know what this is really about and frankly, it is rather tiresome.
