The French Care Home thread is a better one,there were problems in Italy ans Spain,even Ireland were warning later, if you think that only closing on the 23rd of March to facilitate visiting was a good idea, well...I am not saying it wasn't going to happen,it should have been lessened, after promises of testing on 15th 24th and again today of care home testing,it is plain wrong.
That was part of the overall judgement. There's no economic factors involved, in theory banning care home visits would have been one of the easiest measures to take. The constant need to play top trumps with covid 19 is such a futile one. Nobody has the exact same variables.

Your uncle is clearly not representative of the average care home resident. Nobody is saying that they should all be banned from going to hospital, but should (and will) only go if it's in their best interest.
