It was a travesty that it happened.Indeed, the benefit of hindsight is a wonderful thing. However, at the end of the day one of the Govt’s primary functions is to protect its citizens. The decision to release patients back to carehomes without testing was unforgivable. As little as a 2 minute safety review shouldve highlighted the need to test first. It absolutely boggles the mind why it wasnt done. Unfortunately by the time any public enquiry is complete, nobody will care...harsh but true. And we’ll be facing Indyref 99 by then.
A friend of mine has both parents in two separate care homes. There ended up with 10 deaths in his mother's home and thankfully none in his father's.
I couldn't believe that residents and staff were not being tested. It is only quite recently that this has begun to happen. Definitely lessons to be learnt.
Whether they learn from them or not is another matter.
