Care home deaths exceed those in hospitals

Personally I'm quite ready to believe that a) the advice was incomplete b) the advice was changing and c) the response of some care homes wasn't good enough.

IIRC, about 2/3rds of care homes haven't had any COVID deaths; not all of them will have been brilliant but at the same time there's a chunk in there that did things differently to the 1/3rd of care homes that had deaths.

Perhaps we should look to understand what's gone wrong and what's gone right.

Perhaps those without deaths didn't have infected Covid-19 carriers returned to the homes from NHS hospitals....

We will forget what they did eventually, and inevitably continue to ignore the real problems in the sector.

Plus post-Brexit the government think vacancies in care homes will be filled by UK workers. They haven't got a brain cell between them - and will be in for a shock.

A doctor I know is in Spain and now upon coming back will be on unpaid quarantine leave for 2 weeks which he was slightly disappointed about.
