Two UK Doctors Launch Legal Action Against British Government

Two doctors are launching legal action against the British government’s guidance on personal protective equipment (PPE) in hospitals, their lawyers said.

The two doctors, a husband and wife who are expecting a child, have been exposed to patients with COVID-19 and are concerned that current PPE guidance and availability are inadequate to protect them from infection.

“We are incredibly concerned at the ever-growing numbers of healthcare workers who are becoming seriously unwell and dying due to COVID-19,” said the doctors, Meenal Viz and Nishant Joshi, in a statement issued by Bindmans, a law firm.

“It is the government’s duty to protect its healthcare workers, and there is great anxiety amongst staff with regards to safety protocols that seem to change without rhyme or reason,” they said.
