BREAKING NEWS: COVID deaths surge again in care homes

COVID-19 Blue

A further 1,817 COVID related deaths have been recorded in England and Wales in the latest weekly statistics published by the ONS.

The figures for the week ending 22 January mark a 546 rise in deaths in the previous week, the biggest jump since mid-May. Weekly coronavirus deaths in care homes are now at the highest level since early May.

Deaths involving COVID-19 in care homes accounted for nearly half (46.6%) of all deaths in care homes, up from 36.0% in the previous week.

On a year to date basis, COVID deaths stand at 24,709 in England and Wales.

CQC figures show there were 24,919 deaths of residents in care homes involving COVID-19 between 10 April 2020 and 29 January 2021. Of these, 1,790 were notified in the week up to 29 January.

Care Inspectorate Wales recorded 1,470 COVID deaths of residents between 1 March 2020 and 15 January 2021.

The latest shocking rise comes after the government announced that it had reached its target of offering vaccinations to all care homes.

Concerns remain over the number of care home staff vaccinated, however. HC-One told CHP that while 86% of its residents had been offered vaccines as of Friday night across England, Scotland and Wales, the figure for staff was 58%.

HC-One said 6% of staff had declined jabs but said that people initially refusing vaccinations later changed their minds once their peers had been vaccinated.

Speaking during a visit to a jab centre in Batley, West Yorkshire, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said there had a “big increase” in staff vaccinations, the Press Association reported.

When asked if care staff vaccinations should be stepped up, the PM said: “We’re working fast to sort it out and we’re now seeing a big increase in uptake in care home staff and that’s a great thing to see, and I’ve seen in the last few weeks a big increase in the receptivity of care home staff to the vaccinations.”

Managers of any care home for older people that has not yet been vaccinated should email: covidvaccineasc@dhsc.gov.uk.

  1. Surely we should have started to see care home deaths due to Covid fall dramatically by now if they say that the vaccine is 95% effective?

  2. What the hell is going on? If the majority of care home residents have had the ‘vaccine’ then why are large numbers dying? It does not make any sense for them to put the emphasis on jabbing care home staff when surely the residents should be protected by having the jab anyway? I fear something is not quite right here!

    1. 100%
      People are blind to the lies.
      If it protects you then that is it, it’s final.
      But, the vaccine does not stop you catching it or passing it on, it APPARENTLY helps your body fight It in such an event.

      So why the push to get care home staff to have it?
      They can still infect residents.
      None of these ridiculous rules make any sense, scaremongering at its finest

  3. These are experimental vaccines using messenger RNA that have never been used successfully before. There are many concerns with these vaccines. You might be interested to read the ‘informed consent disclosure’ document to people who were undergoing the vaccine trials https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33113270/ . In the results section it states:-

    ‘COVID-19 vaccines designed to elicit neutralising antibodies may sensitise vaccine recipients to more severe disease than if they were not vaccinated. Vaccines for SARS, MERS and RSV have never been approved, and the data generated in the development and testing of these vaccines suggest a serious mechanistic concern: that vaccines designed empirically using the traditional approach (consisting of the unmodified or minimally modified coronavirus viral spike to elicit neutralising antibodies), be they composed of protein, viral vector, DNA or RNA and irrespective of delivery method, may worsen COVID-19 disease via antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE). This risk is sufficiently obscured in clinical trial protocols and consent forms for ongoing COVID-19 vaccine trials that adequate patient comprehension of this risk is unlikely to occur, obviating truly informed consent by subjects in these trials.

    This is saying that people having the vaccine could be more ill than if they didn’t have it, previous similar vaccines have never been approved, there is a serious mechanistic concern and also that this risk is not made clear. But is this being made clear to the public? I don’t think so.

    The vaccine is a totally different type of vaccine to the flu vaccine and hasn’t been used in large vaccine roll-outs before. It actually injects ‘messenger RNA’ (a half-helix of DNA) into your cells. In addition to any reaction within the first few days there can be a secondary risk at a later date. This is sometimes called ‘antibody-dependent enhancement’ (as mentioned in the ‘informed consent disclosure’ document mentioned above) or ‘immune priming’ or ‘cytokine storm’ and is explained in the following papers:-.

    1. Great response Peter, I have come across the same studies you have referenced. Please let us know if we can follow your work and research somewhere.

      Thanks

  4. My 89 year old Mum died in a care home on Saturday less than 72 hours after receiving the vaccine. She had a positive covid test in late Novermber, spent 33 days in Hospital but recovered. In the two weeks before her death she was eating more and overall beginning to recover
    24 hours after having the vaccine her blood pressure began to rise and she became tired.
    After 48 hours high blood pressure, stayed in bed all day, died the next day.
    Why is nobody publicly questioning the link between rise in Care Home deaths and the vaccine roll out?

  5. It will never be published as the take up on the vaccine will drop which is what they don’t want to happen but everyone should be given the same information to allow them to make their own decision and not force it on the elderly or anyone
