“We needed to make a choice about testing, we did decide to focus upon the NHS.” said Mr Buckland.

Mr Buckland continues to say that the loss of elderly persons within these care homes is greatly unfortunate and a huge regret for the government and health care providers.

However Mr Buckland iterates that the reasoning behind prioritizing the NHS prior to care homes was to gain control over the health crisis and that by making sure that these facilities such as the hospitals and care homes are properly equipped and prepared to deal with the pandemic.
