Public health has engaged in unimaginable cruelty confining 150,000 nursing home residents to solitary confinement in their rooms for up to 15 months.
Residents of Ontario’s long-term care homes begged on Tuesday to be allowed outside, saying anti-pandemic restrictions that have confined them indoors for more than a year make no sense given almost all have now been vaccinated.
Some compared their situations to solitary confinement, and urged the provincial government to act on what they called a gross violation of their basic human rights.
Yesterday I read about hospitals that have prohibited parents from visiting new born babies, including those in intensive care for long periods of time. This is devastating.
