Closed petition Welsh Government to hold a public inquiry into decisions taken by them before & during the pandemic.

Many loved-ones acquired Covid-19 in hospitals & care homes in Wales. PPE was lacking, staff not tested unless symptomatic, ventilation poor, Covid patients put on non-Covid wards. Many sent home without being retested; spreading infection in the community & subsequently dying. Many had DNRs placed without consultation. Communication was poor or non-existent. Lessons most definitely have not been learnt. Decisions taken in Wales which affected the people of Wales should be scrutinised in Wales.

More details

As the First Minister has clearly pointed out throughout the pandemic, decisions regarding the Covid-19 rules in Wales have been made in Wales. He has been keen to highlight the often-significant differences of those rules between England and Wales.
A Wales -specific inquiry would provide an independent review to investigate if deaths in Wales could have been prevented.
The Welsh Government deserve to be properly scrutinised - not a footnote in a UK Government inquiry.
