A call has been made for the Welsh Government to be investigated by the Equality and Human Rights Commission over fears older people's rights could have been breached.
The Older People's Commissioner for Wales says comprehensive testing for Covid-19 in care homes was "too slow".
She has questioned whether the "right to life" had been breached and raised the issue with the EHRC.
The health minister said he "didn't recognise" a breach and said the policy was based on scientific advice.
Since lockdown began, 27% of the coronavirus deaths in Wales have been care home residents, according to the Office for National Statistics. This figure does not include those care home residents who died after being transferred to hospital.
When everyone thought my father was dying
with Covid-19 in a home in Wales he couldn't get a test, and that is a 100% take-it-to-the-bank fact. He.E seems to have recovered thank God. The lady in the video below is in Roath Park, Coupla hundred yards from mum and dad's.
