ONS estimates 132,000 people in England have Covid-19”

Opposition parties and whistleblowers in the care sector have said hospitals allowed patients to be discharged from hospital into homes without adequate testing to determine if they had the virus.

The ONS has also said of that of those care home residents whose death involved COVID-19, dementia and Alzheimer's disease was the most common main pre-existing condition found.

"The government has also produced data which not only shows that there has been, as I say, a awful epidemic in care homes but since the care homes action plan began we're are seeing an appreciable and substantial reduction not just in the number of outbreaks but also in the number of deaths".

Of 45,899 care home residents who died during this period, 27% (12,526) had Covid-19 mentioned on their death certificate.

There have been over 12,500 deaths in United Kingdom care homes across a two month period.

Around 148,000 people in England had Covid-19 in recent weeks, according to results on Thursday (14) from a large-scale study in Britain into the spread of the disease.

The charity said the excess deaths in care homes could potentially be attributed to extra stress.

However, a paper dated to February 10 from the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling, which advises the Department of Health, said there was a "realistic probability that there is already sustained transmission in the United Kingdom, or that it will be become established in the coming weeks".

"It's not just the many deaths of older people directly attributed to the virus that cause us concern, but also the spike in deaths accounted for by other things".

There have also been 233,151 UK-wide confirmed cases since the outbreak started, the department said.

She added: "The Government has been too slow to get to grips with this problem".

"The Government's own Covid-19 recovery strategy can't guarantee that every care home for the over-65s will even be offered tests until June 6".

This includes NHS professionals, such as nurses and doctors, as well as social care workers, such as nursing home or home care workers.
