Abstract

To the Editor — Residents of long-term care homes (LTCHs) in England aged 65 years and older endured disproportionate deaths and suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic. A more robust framework in place before the pandemic to protect their human rights, defined as the rights and freedoms of all humans contained in international and national human rights law, may have saved lives and could potentially have avoided the level of hardship experienced by this marginalized group.
