Spanish soldiers find elderly people dead and abandoned in retirement homes

Spanish soldiers find elderly people dead and abandoned in retirement homes”

Staff demanded more protective equipment and extra resources to fight coronavirus after the death toll rose by 457 yesterday, the highest jump to date, reaching a total of 2,182.

The Madrid City Council agreed to the plan this week after it was suggested by the owners of the ice rink.

An investigation has been launched, the general prosecutor announced.

The order appeared to be issued in reaction to reports in Spanish media that quoted the country's defense minister as saying that a care home for elderly citizens was found to have a body or bodies that weren't being moved out.

Margarita Robles, speaking in a television interview, said the army had made the discoveries while disinfecting old people's homes.

According to the tally by global news agency, the pandemic has now spread to 195 countries and has infected at least 381,761 people. In Spain, * a href="https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.ine.es/jaxiT3/Datos.htm?t=1488*!tabs-tabla__;Iw!Iwwt!FbtOP_bHVjiZsuOhhebiAsm3xK5oeW_Nl5-fJwt27gxIKG6q3YY_MDsZ9_lb$" target="_blank" *around 19 percent of the population is over 65 years old; the country has one of the longest life expectancies in the world.

"When I heard this news from the minister I was horrified", Ignacio Fernandez-Cid, president of the Federation of Residential Home Companies, told Al Jazeera.

Under coronavirus protocols, health workers have been instructed to leave bodies in place in suspected COVID-19 deaths until the arrival of a doctor.

The shelter, to be managed by the Red Cross, will allow up to 1,000 homeless people to isolate themselves in hygienic conditions, Barcelona's Mayor Ada Colau said. He is very frail. "This is out of control", he told Al Jazeera.

"We will exercise the most intensive monitoring of these centers", she added. The state guaranteed around 80 per cent of unpaid loans owed by small- to medium-sized companies and self-employed workers, and released an initial tranche of 20 billion euros.

However, with many hospitals overwhelmed by cases, these delays can be lengthy.

Meanwhile, epidemiologists said the number of cases had doubled in the past three days in Spain, a phenomenon not seen in China or Italy.

While cases were mostly concentrated in Madrid, Catalonia and the Basque Country, infection numbers are growing in other regions.

The president of the Association of Social Services Directors and Managers, Jose Manuel Ramirez, labelled Robles's statement "shameful", according to Spanish newspaper El Pais.
