Coronavirus: One-third of deaths are happening in care homes – BBC News


They are now occurring in homes caring for a third of all coronavirus-related deaths in England and Wales. And during Easter week the total death toll in the UK was much higher than initially reported and was usually double what could have been expected.

The Scottish government recommends that people cover their mouths and noses when they are in supermarkets or in enclosed public spaces on public transport. Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the face covers would provide additional protection to other people. Scientists advised by the UK government have said that wearing a mask has little effect on another coronavirus from infecting someone else.

Meanwhile, the UK government has stated that they are making a “substantial effort” to get first-class workers to get protective equipment. According to a BBC Panorama study, the UK government has ignored warnings from its own advisers about the lack of personal protective equipment.
