A Hong Kong charity has estimated that up to 2,000 children under the age of 10 may have been separated from their parents over the past six weeks after being admitted to hospital with Covid-19, with its executive chair calling the policy “child abuse”.⁠

The Hospital Authority could not confirm the figure on Monday, while lawmakers, medical personnel, legal experts and a mental health organisation urged the government not to separate infected children from their parents during isolation and treatment of the coronavirus.⁠

They also called on authorities to provide clear guidance to affected families to help alleviate their stress and grief.⁠

Dr Lucy Lord, executive chair of mental health charity Mind Hong Kong said that separating a child from their parents for even a brief period could lead to post-traumatic stress and have a long-term impact on a youngster’s mental health.⁠
