Coronavirus: Boris Johnson criticised over care home comments Dr Xand van Tulleken I visited one of the hardest hit care homes in Peterborough. 7/18 residents died in two weeks. The only place I have visited that took every single precaution perfectly to no avail. They had no help & no guidance. They were distraught. It is appalling to blame them.It’s hard to exaggerate how much the government is lying. They had to invent every procedure themselves. Staff slept there to protect residents. I arrived and was given an egg timer set for 20 mins. They trained me (!) how to wash my hands & I did it every 20mins Rachel Clarke @doctor_oxford "We discovered too many care homes didn't really follow the procedures in the way they could have." This attempt by@BorisJohnson to blame care homes for 20k residents' deaths is disgraceful. Staff wore *bin bags*. No PPE. No testing. Abject govt failure. We hardly need to comment, do we?
