29,000 deaths later: care home staff and residents to get regular Covid-19 tests

In government, there is an intention behind action – or inaction, as in this case.

To the best of our knowledge, 29,000 people have died of Covid-19 in care homes – many after being transferred out from hospital on the orders of the Conservative government, many after contracting the disease from them.

The Tories said they had thrown a protective ring around care homes before imposing the national lockdown – but that was proved untrue.

And now they say care home staff and residents will receive regular tests – after the testing regime has been proved to be thoroughly useless.

What do you think was the intention behind all these failures and lies?

Staff and residents in care homes in England will receive regular coronavirus tests from next week.

Staff will be tested for coronavirus weekly with tests every 28 for days residents over 65.

The testing policy, which begins on Monday, will also apply to younger patients suffering from dementia.

Any care home dealing with an outbreak, or at increased risk of an outbreak, will be more intensively tested.

Care sector experts say that repeated testing is crucial to containing the virus, following criticism of the government’s handling of the pandemic in residential homes.

    ‘Speaking on LBC, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the government would “go over and look at” whether an earlier lockdown would have made a difference to the number of people who died in care homes.

    “We will have to go back and look at the whole issue of what happened in care homes in great, great detail,” he said.

    “I think what happened was absolutely tragic, there’s no question that we saw far too many lives lost in care homes and we mourn for everyone.”

    Serial liar and instigator of state sanctioned mass murder of over 66,000 women and men, dictator boris claims ‘we mourn for everyone!’ Yes???? Don’t believe a word he utters!

    So will these ‘so-called regular tests’ be similar to what this female paramedic has experienced? All waffle and wasting public money on a mythical ‘test and trace scheme!’
