Watterson AE (2020) Chief coroner's guidance on covid-19 deaths: workers outside the NHS are also vulnerable to risk. BMJ, 369, Art. No.: m2179. https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.m2179

Abstract
First paragraph: The BMJ rightly questioned the decision that coroners need not investigate NHS England personal protective equipment (PPE) failures in staff deaths from covid-19. This rings alarm bells for workers beyond the NHS who may have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 without appropriate PPE. The medical press will hopefully speak up for these often very vulnerable workers.
