A statement on coronavirus, disabled people, people with long term conditions and carers.
With the situation related to COVID-19 changing from day to day, members of the ALLIANCE (including people living with long term conditions, disabled people and unpaid carers and organisations that work for and with them) are expressing understandable anxiety about the following issues:
- The direct impact of the virus on disabled people and people living with long term conditions, many of whom are at most risk from COVID-19, according to official advice.
- Care and support provision for disabled people and people living with long term conditions in the event of widespread infection.
- The long-term impact of COVID-19.
