Coronavirus: Care home testing speed questioned by commissioner

21 May 2020 – BBC News

The Welsh Government was reported to the Equality and Human Rights Commission with allegations that older people’s rights could have been breached.

The Older People’s Commissioner for Wales says comprehensive testing for Covid-19 in care homes was “too slow” and questioned whether the “right to life” was breached and raised the issue with the EHRC.

The Health Minister said he “didn’t recognise” a breach and said the policy was based on scientific advice.
