David Ellis has resigned from his post as COVID-19 Public Advisor.

He made the announcement on Starcom Network’s Down To Brass Tacks progamme on Monday. He was back in the chair as moderator, a job with which he would be very familiar, having worked with that company for several decades.

At the time of his appointment, Ellis said it was not a political pick and he came in for criticism from several quarters.

“One can expect there will be detractors, but I hope I can be measured by the work that I set out to do. Whether I’m independent or not should be  influenced by that work. We have a big fight on our hands. This is a health crisis we are facing. This has nothing to do with the politics of this country.”

Ellis took up the appointment in September 2021. (SAT)
