Politico: UK government failed to protect care home residents from COVID, High Court rules. “The U.K. government broke the law by failing to protect care home residents from COVID during the pandemic, the High Court ruled Wednesday. In March and April 2020, an unknown number of elderly patients in England were discharged from hospital into care homes, having contracted COVID and either died or passed the virus on to others. Judges concluded this was unlawful because it failed to take into account the risk to vulnerable residents from non-symptomatic transmission of the coronavirus.”
