One thing that has been brought to light by the virus is the shïte state of some of the care homes in Canada. Unlike the UK where squaddies are carrying out virus testing, in Ontario and Quebec troops have been deployed to work directly in the care homes to provide support for the elderly. When the provincial government leaders requested the help it didn’t seem to dawn on them that the military would publish reports of the conditions that they encountered. It has now bitten them squarely in the arsę by revealing how badly Canadians take care of geriatrics who can’t care for themselves anymore. So far 28 members of the CF have got the virus by trying to give those who live in the homes a fighting chance and have had an uphill battle since the start as the facilities are in such a shïte state. Pathetic doesn’t even begin to describe the situation....
A military report released Tuesday shed light on the "gut-wrenching" conditions of five long-term care homes in Ontario during the COVID-19 pandemic.
