Only suspicion and vague ‘linking’ but clearly a story, picked up from the Sun newspaper, that BBC Scotland want to dwell upon and hammer into the collective consciousness.

No evidence, no test results and so the deaths in a Scottish care home were not recorded as covid-19 deaths. Clearly disappointed, BBC Scotland reported what the NHS England director had to say on the matter:

‘It is with great sadness that deaths do unfortunately happen in the community,” Mr Powis said. “The figures we report from the NHS are the number of deaths in hospital.’

That’s ironic given what we’ve recently heard about massive under-reporting of deaths in NHS England and the introduction of new procedures in Scotland to make sure the figures here are accurate:

The Sun was less reserved and imaginatively described how the bug ‘swept through’ the care home.
