Twenty-two residents of the same Hampshire care home have died after testing positive for Covid-19.
Owner Avery Healthcare said all the deaths at Pemberley House in Basingstoke occurred this month.
The number of deaths accounted for approximately a third of those living at the home, which provides care for people over 65.
They died after testing positive for Covid-19. Therefore it’s a ‘Covid outbreak’, naturally. They also died after being vaccinated.
“As a company we are supporting the vaccine roll-out and our focus remains on supporting the wellbeing of residents, families and staff as we work through this together.”
A spokeswoman for Hampshire County Council said the local authority did not comment on deaths within private care homes and offered condolences to the families affected.
She added that “protection from the vaccine takes time” so even people who have had the jab should continue to regularly wash their hands, use face coverings and stay two metres apart.
They didn’t wash their hands enough or stay 2 metres apart, obviously.
RIP you lovely people. So sorry for the grieving relatives.
This graph shows the immune suppression (lymphocyte count) shortly after the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine is administered. As you can see, it is very significant and this could possibly make a very old and frail person susceptible to a life threatening infection.
