Public share concern over Government PPE failure
New data released by Public Health England shows that a total of 26,097 patients had died in hospitals, care homes and the wider community after testing positive for coronavirus in the UK as of 5pm on Tuesday 28th April 2020.
Our research for Amnesty International shows there is a lack of confidence in how the Government is responding to the crisis. It revealed that:
- nearly two in three people in the UK believe the Government has performed poorly in providing personal protective equipment for healthcare workers (60%) and key workers (62%).
- more than three-quarters 78% felt that the Government had not been fully transparent in its communication with the public so far with over a third (36%) saying the Government has tended not to be or never has been transparent in relation to its handling of the pandemic.
