In this Editorial in Occupational Medicine, Raymond Agius asks why when millions of people are in ‘lockdown’ in their own homes to avoid the contagion of COVID-19, many workers lack a comparable degree of protection. The planning and logistics of contending with this pandemic may be analogous to those of war, but we are not in a conflict: workers’ lives need not and must not be lost.
"On the face of it, the conclusion that during this pandemic thousands of workers may have been seriously jeopardized and denied the safeguards that are theirs by right is difficult to refute."
