Nine die of Covid-19 at Kent Care Home – let down by system

The owner of a care home in Kent where nine of its 22 residents have died after testing positive for Covid-19 has called for a public inquiry.  One resident, a 96-year-old veteran, returned from William Harvey Hospital, in Ashford, before receiving a Covid-19 test result.

Roger Waluube, who runs Pelham House in Folkestone, said the home had been through a “living nightmare”. Especially after the “abandonment of the care home sector”.

Up to 18 of its 20 residents contracted Covid-19 and until 18 June nine had died from the virus.

Mr Waluube believes residents at the home ” treated in a deplorable way”. He said there were too many failings in the support for the home.  The owner said it was “wholly inadequate”.

Ministers said a review would have to happen after the pandemic.
