ONS report on Covid-19 – Marsha de Cordova responds

Marsha de Cordova MP, Labour’s Shadow Women and Equalities Secretary, responding to ONS report on the social impact of Covid-19 on disabled people, said:

“This report once again shows the devastating impact that Covid-19 is having on disabled people’s lives.

“It is deeply concerning that disabled people are significantly more likely to have concerns about access to food and medication as well as their non-Covid related health care needs.

“As lockdown eases, the Government must urgently act to ensure that its coronavirus recovery policies are inclusive for disabled people, so that no one is left behind.”
