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.
