And as in all previous stories we have published like this, the experimental vaccines are not even being considered as a cause. The North Wales Chronicle reported:
The home had reportedly suffered a COVID outbreak last year that they handled well. So how do they explain this current outbreak that occurred just after injecting the residents with the first dose of one of the experimental COVID shots, which has resulted in so many deaths?A DEVASTATED care boss who fought a valiant battle to protect her care home from the grip of Covid has spoken of the painful “empty feeling” after 12 much-loved residents died.
Jodie Jones, manager of Fairways Newydd Nursing and Dementia Care Centre in Llanfairpwll, Anglesey has described the shattering outbreak at the home as the worst experience of her long career.
The home, which has enjoyed a renaissance since being saved from potential closure by Fairways in 2017, had taken great steps to try and prevent any outbreak of Covid and all residents had recently had their first vaccine.
Home bosses remain in the dark about how the virus broke out in the home, given the stringent measures they put in place to prevent any outbreak which had been acknowledged in inspection reports.
Mrs Jones has expressed her anguish at seeing the impact the outbreak has had at the home, which caters for residents with dementia as well as others such as the elderly.
“It is heartbreaking to lose so many residents,” she said. “All of them were very popular with staff and we are devastated to have lost each of them.
I’ve always said it is not like working in a hospital, where patients come and go. The residents are with us for months and years
A proper bond is built up and the residents become like family. We see them more than we do our own families.
So, when any resident passes away it hits the staff hard. It upsets them to walk past the bedrooms and realise a resident is no longer with us.
Our thoughts are very much with their families at this incredibly difficult time.”
Mrs Jones, 40, has spent all her adult life working in the care sector and has been at Fairways Newydd since 2017. She became manager the following year.
“This is without doubt the worst experience I have ever had in my career,” she said.
“There’s such an empty feeling. The people who live here are not just a number, they are part of our lives.
Whenever I am interviewing staff, I always tell them that I want them to look after residents the same way they would their nain, taid, parents or any other close family member. They treat them with the care they would for their own family.
It really has hit everybody hard. The staff are grieving for the residents we have lost.”
As we have repeatedly seen in these stories, so strong is the belief in vaccines that they are never considered to be the cause of death, even when given in close proximity to the deaths.She believes the new variant of Covid-19 is likely to have been responsible for the outbreak in recent weeks, which has led to a total of 36 residents at the home testing positive along with 54 staff.
The home has not yet received confirmation that the positive Covid tests were for the new variant of the virus.
However, Mrs Jones believes the way the home was able to successfully contend with a small Covid outbreak last year is a clear indicator that something has been different this time around.
“We dealt with this outbreak in exactly the same way as the previous one and were confident we knew what to do,” she said.
“However, the fact that this has been so different suggests it may have been the new variant.”
Instead, in this case they are blaming it on the “new variant” even in the absence of any testing or data to back up such a belief.
