Relatives say ban on care home visits is “breach of human rights” and plan legal action – BBC News

Families with relatives in care homes in England say government rules preventing visits during the coronavirus pandemic are a breach of human rights. They are planning to take legal action.

In Tier 1 areas residents can usually have one visitor, but in higher risk areas the advice is that visits should only happen in exceptional circumstances. The government says its priority is keeping residents safe.

Meanwhile The UK is set to become the first country in the world to deliberately infect volunteers with coronavirus, in the hope of speeding up the search for a vaccine.

Healthy volunteers under the age of 30 will be paid to take part in the human challenge trials and monitored for any side effects for up to a year.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by social affairs correspondent Alison Holt and medical editor Fergus Walsh.

    Theresa May introduced "Snoopers Charter" in 2016 a basic 'breach of human rights'…. where was the, outrage and media coverage then? Why is it even still a 'law'? Do these human rights matter when those human rights don't? hypocrisy of the highest order.

    Leaving old people in care homes is a breach of human rights, too. They raised you up, they deserve better. Respect and love your parents and take care of them, don't slam them into an institution.

    We have no rights anymore. Wake up people. It's time for action.

    Wow! BBC covering the effects of lock-down on the elderly. It's only taken 6 months. Well done chaps!

    As a carer i know for a fact the care an elderly dementia patient receives is greatly enhanced by regular family visits in more way's than one can imagine. This situation is so sad and wrong on so many levels. Logic and all rationale appears to be lost on people managing these institutions. The colour of money however seems to be the only driving force hence why Covid patients from hospital are discharged into care homes.

    Relatives should be allowed just give them full PPE – Gloves Apron and a mask like they do at the Hospital.

    Amazing Testimony of God completely Curing
    Pancreatic Cancer!!!
    My name is Dae Gyung Kim. I am the head pastor
    of Sarang Jeil Church in Ban Weul Dong,
    Hwaseong city, Gyeongi province.
    Our church is part of The General Assembly
    of Presbyterian Church in Korea.
    I was diagnosed with the deadly pancreatic cancer.
    One morning I collapsed suddenly and was rushed
    to the S Hospital in Seoul.
    Doctors told me I should begin to make
    my funeral arrangements.
    The cancer cells had already spread
    throughout my lymph nodes,
    stomach and intestines,
    and brain so there was no chance for me to survive.
    I received a death sentence.
    But God healed me miraculously.
    Through earnest request I once again received
    a CT scan, an MRI, a spinal examination,
    a radiation examination, a blood test, etc.
    These detailed tests revealed
    that all the cancer cells
    had completely disappeared from my body.
    Doctors said that this was impossible
    and that it was a miracle.
    I did not even go through
    with the 36 chemotherapy treatments
    that doctors ordered me to have.
    But a medically impossible healing did happen to me.
    Only by God’s grace did I receive healing from cancer.
    I was given the gift to heal diseases through intercessory prayer.
    I want to upload my testimony to YouTube
    to be a witness to the living God’s power
    I recorded a short, two minute testimony in both Korean
    and English so that this truth could be proclaimed
    over the whole world.
    I’m so filled with thanks
    that I am using the comment section
    to let everyone know what I have experienced.
    Surely God the creator is alive
    and is in control of all things.
    Please watch this video
    and share it with people close to you
    and let them know that there is a way to live.
    For those who desire their illness to be healed,
    If you leave your prayer requests
    in the YouTube comment section of
    <Reverend Dae Kyung Kim healing prayer>.
    We will pray on your behalf every Sunday at 4PM.
    For English speakers,
    you may upload your prayer requests in English as well.
    I hope you live a long and healthy life
    and afterwards, we are able to meet in heaven.

    (Youtube search : Pancreatic Cancer Healing Testimony)

    If you request a healing prayer by comment,
    I will pray in order within 30 minutes.
    Please write your name along with the prayer topic.
    I call each and every one to pray.
    Please watch the healing testimony
    and YouTube video posted at the beginning
    of the comment and pray with faith.
    The healing prayer time starts at 4pm every week.
    It proceeds once a week at the same time in order.
    I will continue to pray for those who requested prayer even during the morning prayer time every day.
    Please pray with Amen as you listen to the healing prayer video every day.
    If you pray for not only yourself, but for other patients, you will be healed.
    My wife, Kim Myung-sook, was also cured of diabetes while praying with tears for curing the diseases of the saints.
    I believe that God will hear you
    if you repent of all sins and pray
    with a pure heart.
    Please recover your health and devote your life to the church
    you attend and live a blessed life.
    Healing is done by God.

    We all love our older loved ones.. but about 35-40% of people are asymptomatic with Covid – there is no way to keep those in care homes safe with that (unless you test out and even that's not 100%) If you really want to see your loved ones, take them home.. but don't potentially infect others. Everyone knows this is heartbreaking, living through a pandemic is hard. Don't make it more difficult for the care homes to keep your family safe.

    Racism wouldn't even exist if we all stayed with our own people and didn't try to sneak into other people's tribes. Multiculturalism, globalism, and slavery created racism. We got rid of slavery, now its time to end the other two and lets end racism for good.

    If these measures were a medicine, they would never be approved due to the massively harmful side effects.

    UK should legalize euthanasia for the elderly like Switzerland did. In 2015, a woman from the UK named Gill Pharaoh decided to go to Switzerland in order to receive doctor's assisted euthanasia, even though she was extremely healthy. ~Gill Pharaoh, age 75, who wrote two books giving advice on how to care for the elderly, was not suffering from a terminal disease.~
    She said she had seen enough of old age to know that she was “going over the hill” and wanted to take action to end her life while she was able to do so.~
    Speaking before her death in Basel, the mother of two said her experience as a nurse, including working in nursing homes, had shown her that the reality of old age was “awful”.~
    She told The Sunday Times: “I have looked after people who are old, on and off, all my life. I have always said, ‘I am not getting old. I do not think old age is fun.’ I know that I have gone just over the hill now. It is not going to start getting better. I do not want people to remember me as a sort of old lady hobbling up the road with a trolley."
