In Scotland, in the last two years, hospitals have become hot-beds of infection and these infections have been linked to patient deaths. Though none have been shown to have been killed by the infections, the stories are told in melodramatic, simplistic terms implying that they were.

You can tell that this is fake news because they were telling no such stories in such a frenzy, before, when infection rates were objectively higher, and because the English media are not telling the same story despite evidence of even greater problems, revealed in inspections there.

What is different here, is that the Great Scottish Hospital Health Crisis is driven by a political agenda and not just by the desire to attract an audience.
