The UK was in strict lockdown with alarming Coronavirus infection and death rates in May 2020. An alcohol-laden party took place at the gardens of 10 Downing Street. A hundred invitations were sent to government staff by Martin Reynolds, principal private secretary of Boris Johnson. Ultimately forty people attended the party held on May 20, Johnson and his wife were present.
