“We should’ve been focusing on care homes from the start, despite that this is evidence that despite what is being said, there were cases of people who either didn’t have a Covid status or were symptomatic and were discharged from our care homes” quoted Mr Starmer.

The prime minister inserted his rebuttal stating “no one was discharged into a care home without the authorization of a clinician”.

Mr Johnson was also quick to remind his counterpart about the progress which was made during the first quarter with regards to hospital recoveries “the number of patients discharged from hospitals into care homes was 40% down in March”.
