News Update

  • 'Excess deaths' fall below average for the first time since March

    'Excess deaths' fall below average for the first time since March

    06.07.20 Care home coronavirus deaths continue to fall, according to the latest official data from the Office for National Statistics, and “excess deaths” from all causes have fallen below the five-year average for the first time in more than three months. In the week ending 19 June, the number of deaths in care homes fell below the five-year average for the first time since the week ending 13 March. The number of excess deaths also decreased in all settings compared with the previous week. There were 49 fewer deaths in care homes than the five-year average during the week to 19 June. But Alzheimer’s Society warned against complacency. “Tragically, people with dementia have been worst hit by this crisis, representing over a quarter of all Covid-19 deaths, twice as many people dying at the height of the pandemic compared with previous years,” said the Society’s head of policy Gavin Terry.

  • Government announces phased moved to repeat testing in care homes

    Government announces phased moved to repeat testing in care homes

    03.07.20 All care home staff and residents will be given regular coronavirus tests starting from Monday 6 July, the government has said. The care home sector has been calling for repeat testing for months as the only way to control the outbreak and under this new initiative staff are due to be tested every week and residents once a month. The Department for Health and Social Care said that care homes primarily looking after over-65s or people with dementia would be prioritised for repeat testing from 6 July, before the scheme is rolled out to all care homes looking after adults in August. Repeat testing, which will identify asymptomatic residents and staff, will apply in addition to the existing intensive testing of care homes facing an outbreak or the risk of an outbreak. Sector leaders welcomed the move.
