Intentional Care Home Infection

If the care homes are anything like the hospital where my missus works, most of the staff have already had Covid19.

The vector last time was probably patient-care staff-patient, if the care staff are immune and follow hygiene protocols (they mostly will be immune if they've had it whatever the hysterics say) then this vector will be reduced a lot.

I could see the nursing homes being used by the NHS to provide Covid19 palliative care - NHS overflow capacity. "Can't do any more for you matey I'm afraid, off to the nursing home. We need your bed for someone we might be able to help"

If deaths can be maintained in the nursing homes, so that beds clear, it'll be pretty much like a conveyor belt from hospital -> nursing home -> crematorium.

Not a bad plan tbh.

Seems a little harsh if giving them HCQ/Azithromycin/Calcifediol could save most of them.

@Hopeful is looking at the bigger picture (strain on state/ letting nature do it's thing) and seems to be especially savage in that regard today.

That's what it's all about. Invididuals are irrelevant, However important each of us feel we are xD

I see everyone else as irrelevant xD

It was said here earlier in the year, you expect to go to hospital to be cured, and you expect to go to the care home to die. People dying in hospital is bad optics (Italy last Spring), people dying in old folks homes is normal....

If they have come from a care home and are going back to a care home, it's a little different from someone a bit ill being sent to the death-homes. 


We value extending life quite a lot in the UK even if we forgot to look at the quality of that extended life.

Yes but it gives a better quality of life to the care home owners who profit from it.
