4 August 2020
The Government is committed to ensuring disabled people receive the support they need during the COVID-19 outbreak and beyond. We know that many people with long-standing, limiting illnesses or health conditions are at higher risk of poorer outcomes from COVID-19.
We are continuing to review all the available evidence and commissioning new research to better understand the specific impact of COVID-19 on disabled people. This will inform future policy development and what additional practical measures we can take to protect disabled people.
