Being ‘past the peak’ does not hold true for social care – Liz Kendall

Liz Kendall, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Social Care, responding to the latest Office for National Statistics’ data on Covid-19 related deaths, said:

“These figures show that talk of being ‘past the peak’ of this awful virus simply does not hold true for social care.

“Ministers must take urgent action to get to grips with this problem – including getting proper PPE to the frontline, making care workers a top priority for testing and ensuring the NHS does more to support social care services and help keep elderly and disabled people safe.”
