Corona outbreak in nursing home: vaccination teams are said to have brought in the virus
The managing director of a nursing home raises serious allegations: of all things, the vaccination teams are said to be responsible for the corona outbreak.
Since the beginning of December, a Bavarian test regulation has been in place, according to which only people who tested negative are allowed to enter the care home.
The Elisabeth nursing home would have adhered to this regulation. But: “We now had 51 out of 58 PCR-confirmed Covid-19 cases,” said Franke.
It is therefore very likely that the visits by the vaccination staff and the outbreak are directly related.
“We didn’t have a resident, employee or relative who tested positive until January 2nd,” said the head of the facility. Then the employees would have come with the protective drug.
Since then, more than 50 cases have become known. Not just with the residents of the facility.
The staff was also hit hard: “33 of the 55 employees have dropped out, 28 of them due to Covid-19.” These are now in quarantine.
Which has led to a significant personnel problem. But the remaining nurses got help: “Great praise also to the population,” said Franke to the volunteers. Eight people, some of them themselves from the nursing staff, have been trying to keep the company going since this week.
Franke had meanwhile also contacted the responsible authority regarding his suspicions: “Unfortunately, when we asked the district office, they couldn’t show us any negative test results.”
Some of the vaccination staff could therefore be positively infected with Sars-CoV-2: “The only people who entered our nursing home without having tested negative were these 20 members of the vaccination team.”
The district office rejects the allegations. The home manager has now submitted an application to receive help from the Bundeswehr. An answer has not yet been received.
