Carers Lacking PPE

April 1, 2020

Pat Jones, who cares for adults with learning difficulties in Bridgend, says she and her colleagues have very little personal protective equipment, and are resorting to buying home-made cloth masks.

She is concerned carers may spread the virus to the vulnerable, elderly people they look after, which will increase pressure on the NHS.

Ms Jones said: “At the moment we have two masks between a team of eight.

“They’re surgical, single-use masks so they’re not actually any good – and nobody is using them because nobody wants to be the one that used the mask. That’s all we have, two surgical masks.”
