Coronavirus: PM must explain 10,000 deaths in care homes says Labour leader – BBC News

The prime minister must account for official figures, showing 10,000 “unexplained” deaths last month, in care homes in England and Wales.

The challenge was made by the Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who said the UK government had been “too slow to protect people in care homes”.

Meanwhile the number of tests being carried out for coronavirus is still below the government’s target of 100,000 a day. The latest day’s figures show just over 87,000 tests were carried out. Some key workers are also reporting difficulties and delays in getting test results.
