Will sick/disabled people be denied the care they need if they get coronavirus, simply because the Tories aren’t bothering to ensure it will be available to them?

Can we really say the Tories are taking coronavirus seriously when their chief advice to stop its spread is “Now Wash Your Hands”?

And stopping its spread seems to be the Tories’ only policy – which is strange because contagions like this tend to sidestep such measures with ease.

What can we deduce from this, if not that the Tories’ health system simply isn’t capable of handling the increased care needs of people who are more susceptible to the disease?

In other words: are we to consider people with underlying health conditions, that make them more vulnerable, to be collateral damage in the fight against COVID-19?

Disability Rights UK is seeking evidence that hospitals will be able to cope with the most vulnerable cases – which indicates that no such evidence has been forthcoming.

The other advice currently issuing from the Tories is that people who think they have the disease should isolate themselves.

Wouldn’t that be a route to certain disaster for vulnerable sick and/or disabled people who can’t look after themselves properly under normal circumstances?

Most worrying of all is the fact that the Conservatives cannot be said to have shown proper concern for sick and disabled people in normal circumstances.

Their benefit assessors alone have doctored thousands of applications to deny claimants the money that was due to them – placing their lives in danger by doing so.

And many, many thousands of sick and/or disabled people have died, either through the worsening of their conditions or by taking their own lives, due to the hostile environment that the Tories have made for them.

So it seems reasonable to suggest that the outbreak of coronavirus in the UK may be seen by the Tories as a handy way of culling the millions of “useless eaters”, as the Nazis used to describe disabled people in 1930s Germany.

Do they want to increase coronavirus-related deaths, simply by ignoring the possible effect on people who are sick/disabled?
