    I agree that care homes should be environments that cope with viruses, but clearly they can't.
    Agreed.

    I'm in total agreement with both of you.

    Hopefully they'll be better prepared for next winter.

    According to the ONS, it was over 33,800 up to 30th April. So to get to 34,000 would mean we're averaging 10 a day since then.
    And that's based on the figures that we know of.
    Then again, last time I checked, the UK figures are over 3,000 new cases per day, so it's not exactly under control either.
    It's 34716 registered Corona linked deaths in the UK as of this morning

    That's not the ONS figures, that the DHSC figures.

    On 30th April, DHSC were reporting 26,771 total dead in the UK.
    ONS base it on the date of death, so a death that took place in April but wasn't reported until 5th May would be included in their figures.
    ONS figures to 30th April were 33,841
    Since 30th April, DHSC have reported about 8,000 deaths.

    Even if all deaths reported to DHSC up to 5th May were actually April ones, there's still over 5,000 to add on.
