Deaths in care homes fell at a slower rate than the population at large, and the total number of deaths in care homes in England and Wales now stands at 9,975.A cross-party parliamentary committee looking into the government’s handling of the crisis on Tuesday said testing had been “inadequate” in a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.”The decision to pursue an approach of initially concentrating testing in a limited number of laboratories and to expand them gradually… is one of the most consequential made during this crisis,” they said.”From it followed the decision on March 12 to cease testing in the community and retreat to testing principally within hospitals.”The decision meant residents in care homes could not get tests when the virus was at its most potent stage, they added. Topics : The government’s official rolling tally, which was 34,796 as of Monday, is lower because it only records deaths after positive tests.Either way, Britain is the worst-hit country in Europe, and the government has been criticized heavily for its response to the outbreak.The ONS figures show a sharp fall in coronavirus deaths in the week up to May 8, reinforcing ministers’ claims that the country is past the peak.Numbers in England and Wales fell from 6,035 to 3,930. Care home deaths accounted for 42.4 percent of the total — up from 40.4 percent the week before. Britain’s official coronavirus death toll is now over 40,000 with almost 10,000 dead in care homes in England and Wales alone, according to a statistical update released on Tuesday.Some 40,902 deaths from coronavirus were registered by May 8, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), meaning the true toll will be even higher when deaths registered over the last 10 days are taken into account.The ONS figures include deaths where COVID-19 is suspected or mentioned on the death certificate.
Meanwhile, North Sulawesi had recorded 4,868 confirmed COVID-19 cases as of Thursday, with 185 fatalities.According to Sitaro Regent Evangelian Sasingen, her strategy for keeping the region COVID-19-free until June was to impose preventive measures before the central government announced the first COVID-19 in Indonesia.“At every entrance there were strict examinations. At the beginning, we didn’t have personal protective equipment, so we wore raincoats instead”, she said in a statement published on the national COVID-19 task force’s website on Thursday.After the first case in the regency was announced, an infection cluster was detected at a market, prompting Evangelian to lock down the market temporarily while the area was disinfected. With the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping across the world and Indonesia, Siau Tagulandang Biaro (Sitaro) Islands regency in North Sulawesi has become a rare case of a region with a very low rate of infection.The first confirmed case of COVID-19 was only recorded in the regency that comprises Siau, Tagulandang and Biaro islands, in June, after a resident who had just returned from the provincial capital of Manado tested positive for the deadly virus.As of Thursday, the regency, which has a population of 73,584, had one COVID-19 patient under treatment, while 34 patients had recovered and one had died. Her administration also traced the contacts of the patient, which lead them to one subdistict. Whenever a reactive result was recorded from an initial test, the suspected carrier was taken to the Rumah Singgah shelter home, which the administration has turned into isolation center.In addition to setting up an isolation center, she also established COVID-19 task forces at every level of the community from district to subdistrict, village to hamlet. The task forces are in charge of monitoring all newcomers to their respective areas.”All newcomers are obliged to undergo isolation for two weeks,” Eva said. Traditional leader of Sitaro Islands regency Erland Jaya Salindeho added that cooperation between the regional administration, traditional leaders and the community had been optimal.The challenge they faced was how to engage remote hamlets.“We addressed the issue by establishing traditional institutions who are in charge of educating and empowering residents and mitigating disasters,” Eva said.For their efforts at curbing COVID-19, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency gave an award to Sitaro regency on Thursday.According to a risk map published on the national COVID-19 task force’s website, as of Oct. 11 there were 11 “low risk” green zones that had recorded zero cases of COVID-19 and 14 regions that were not affected by COVID-19.
