Public Health England pressed government officials to lockdown care home facilities as it became apparent that these spaces became ridden with the coronavirus. However, this proposal was soon turned down by government officials.

The plan to lockdown care home facilities consisted of an 11-point plan which contemplated the lockdown of care home facilities, getting care-takers and NHS workers to potentially move into these facilities for a period of about 4 weeks and to utilize NHS properties and other government owned facilities as nursing homes for the infected to be isolated in.

The plight of infected patients within these facilities is what encouraged the PHE to propose to the government a potential solution to the extreme levels of transmission that dominates these care home facilities, and to allow for care-takers to better contribute to alleviating the stress within these homes.

Infections within care homes became rampant, leading to an estimated 38% of the patients who had become infected with the virus, to eventually die from it. As it is known that care home facilities house the elderly, and have been proven to be among the most vulnerable group to this virus and thus require better care.

The lockdown proposal was however not acknowledged by the government seeing that Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock did not include the PHE’s lockdown plan in his announcement regarding infection control within the UK.

The plan has since been overlooked, however government officials are still trying to develop alternative methods to deal with the on-going crisis within care homes.
