Launch a compensation scheme for frontline key workers living with Long Covid

Petition Details

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, the UK’s keyworkers were on the front line. Latest figures now show that there are 2.3 million people living with Long Covid in the UK, and many of those are the keyworkers that continued working whilst the rest of the UK shielded, were locked down or furloughed.

Additional Information

Despite the dangers, where some of these amazing people actually lost their lives, today there is not enough support for those suffering from Long Covid.

The Coronavirus All-Party Parliamentary group have released a report and one of their key recommendations was to open a compensation scheme for frontline key workers living with Long Covid: https://www.appgcoronavirus.uk/home/long-covid-report-march-2022

Yet months on and the UK Government shows no signs of doing anything to help these people.
