Inside Care Homes: COVID-19 Conditions Revealed
"We've never had so many deaths"
As the coronavirus outbreak continues to cause unprecedented death in the United Kingdom, care homes have become one of the dangerous places for the spread of the disease.
While the government has released daily figures detailing the number of people to die from COVID-19, it has not included the numbers of those who have died from the virus in care homes, something which has baffled and angered critics.
What is the situation in care homes across the UK? We spoke to one carer who wished to remain anonymous about the worrying lack of personal protective equipment available to them and their colleagues, as well as the alarming rate of deaths since the outbreak began.
“If we have a day off sick, we are made to feel like we are just skiving... We have never had so many deaths."
