Coronavirus: British authorities announce that the homeless of London will be accommodated in local hotels for the next 12 weeks




British authorities have announced that the homeless of London will be accommodated in hotels for the next 12 weeks, in an effort to protect the most vulnerable people from contracting or spreading Covid-19.

The government, working in partnership with the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), will make 300 hotel rooms available for homeless people known to charities across the city.

If this limited trial is successful, it might be extended to other cities across the UK.

Homeless people are particularly susceptible to be infected and/or spread the coronavirus due to their situation.
