COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on older persons living in care homes in England, with more than 18,500 dying in the first three months. This report examines UK government decisions and failures which resulted in violations of the human rights of people living in care homes. Amnesty International calls for a full, independent public inquiry to be set up immediately – so that lessons can be learned and measures swiftly taken to ensure older people in care homes are protected.
