Government broke law discharging care home residents from hospital untested during Covid, High Court rules

Sharing is Caring!

Boris Johnson’s Government broke the law by failing to protect more than 20,000 care home residents who died from Covid-19 during the pandemic, the High Court has ruled.

The policy of discharging patients from hospital to care homes at the start of the pandemic was “unlawful” and “irrational”, the court said.

Presiding judges Lord Justice Bean and Mr Justice Garnham said the Government’s policy was “unlawful” because they failed to take into account the risk to elderly and vulnerable residents from non-symptomatic transmission of Covid-19.
