Employees working in the UK care home struggle amid the virus outbreak

UK care homes are at risk of being hit by COVID-19 again as the UK fights a major upsurge in lawsuits.

Tracy Leads nurse at Northfield Nursing Home in Sheffield spoke to British broadcaster Sky News and compared her experience to “Groundhawk Day”.

“Every time you get a discharge, you always get another patient,” he said.

Eva Kofi, a third-year medical student and part-time caregiver, told Sky that the situation could change drastically from week to week.

He recalled having a shift for a weekend, which was “absolutely fine”.

“I’ll be back next week, there was a little sticker for every name on the board that said they had Govit on it,” he continued.

“I was really scared.”

On Friday, Britain approved a corona virus vaccine manufactured by Moderna, the third largest licensed use in the country.

The UK has so far vaccinated about 1.5 million people with the Pfizer-BioEntech and Oxford-Astrogeneca vaccines.

The British government says it aims to vaccinate all residents of nursing homes by the end of January.
