The care watchdog has issued an investigation after the government’s blatant discrimination against vulnerable citizens shocked the nation.
Vulnerable people, together with those with learning disabilities, have been wrongly singled out under the new notice causing fury amongst its bodies and the general public.
Mencap said it had received reports in January from people with learning disabilities that they had been told they would ‘not be resuscitated’ if they fell ill with Covid-19.
Only in December, the Care Quality Commission stated that DNACPR (Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) had caused potentially avoidable deaths last year.
Many will view the shocking notices as clear-cut genocide and some have even compared to the treatment disabled people were subjected to during Nazi Germany.
In any case, singling out any group is more than dangerous, but it is what we’ve come to expect from governments and the rulers who control them.
