By the time a "lockdown" was imposed by the prime minister on March 23, the virus was spreading fast and Sonya Kaygan, who worked at the Elizabeth Lodge, was beginning to feel sick. Unbeknown to her family, Kaygan had ordered surgical facemasks on Amazon. They arrived in early April after she was hospitalized. Other carers at the Lodge ordered masks, too, said another staff member. And after Kaygan's death, a different fellow employee posted on Twitter: "I work there and all of this has (been) very hard on us all and every one is right. We as carers don't have enough PPE."

Erkan Nabi holds his mother, Munuse Nabi's hand, in King George Hospital before she died from coronavirus in Ilford, Britain, April 19, 2020. In early April, Munuse developed a temperature and a dry and persistent cough, and lost her voice. As she got worse, a doctor examined Munuse by video link. When she began to struggle to breathe, Nabi urged the home to send her to hospital. A nurse, he said, told him: "We've been told not to send people to hospital. Just leave them here. They're comfortable." He was upset. "They were trying to encourage me to leave her there basically to die." He insisted they call an ambulance, and she was taken to hospital.

On the third night of 90-year-old Munuse Nabi's hospital stay, a doctor called her son Erkan to say her COVID-19 test had come back positive. As her condition was worsening and she was too fragile for invasive treatment, they would not be able to save her life. Erkan, urged to visit, went to the hospital and was dressed up by staff in what he calls the "full battledress" protective gear, including visor and gown. As doctors gave Munuse small doses of morphine to make her comfortable, Erkan stayed by her bedside all through April 19 and into the early hours of April 20, holding her hand as she slipped away.
