I never want to see another headline stating that a child has died alone because no family members were allowed to be with them. This is what happened to a 13 year old boy in the UK on Monday.

We are all so grateful for the wonderful job that the NHS does and especially at this difficult time. We understand that so many hard decisions have to be made every day. Please provide guidelines for front line staff to prevent tragic and frankly inhumane decisions being made under these extremely difficult circumstances.

If a child is transferred to hospital from their family home and tests positive for Covid-19 then surely the whole family will need to self isolate regardless.The parents will already have been exposed to the virus so there is no further risk to them by being with their child.

There must already be safety measures in place when transferring suspected Covid-19 patients into hospital. These could also be used to get parents safely into the hospital without risk of infecting others. 

These are scary times and we all want the best for everyone. Preventing the spread of the virus is crucial but so are basic human rights. Some of us will live and some of us will die, please let our children who must die go surrounded by love, not fear.
