Coronavirus: anger over huge death toll in “abandoned” care homes – BBC News

There is growing anger over how coronavirus has taken hold in care homes across the UK. The government suggests that one in four of all coronavirus deaths in England have been in care homes.

The National Care Association says they feel “completely abandoned”. Others are questioning how quickly the extra £600m of funding for the care sector will get to those who need it.

Meanwhile teachers’ unions are to meet the government’s chief scientific advisers to seek reassurance about plans to partially reopen some of England’s schools.

Some say they are concerned about the safety of staff and pupils.
