A campaign group of bereaved families who lost relatives to COVID-19 and want the government to account for its errors during the pandemic are dissatisfied with the COVID Inquiry and feel they are being sidelined.

T he COVID-19 Bereaved Families for Justice have been dealt yet another blow by the COVID Inquiry. Shockingly, the Inquiry is considering only allowing one bereaved family to speak in the first module on preparation for the pandemic when the organization counts 6,500 members.

The-said module is a month-long and it has been proposed that it would only take place at the very end of the process.

This is despite the Chair of the Inquiry Baroness Hallett’s promise that bereaved families would be at the heart of the Inquiry.
