Major Liverpool hospital has seen surge in cases and deaths, say whistleblowers
Whistleblowers at a major Merseyside hospital report that the trust has seen a significant surge in coronavirus cases this week, with a high number of deaths leading to a shortage of body bags.
A spokesperson for Aintree University Hospital denied that it had run out of body bags, but did not explicitly deny that the trust had seen a surge in cases and deaths.
Official figures state that the ‘R’ rate of spread of the virus in the north-west of England is only fractionally above the critical ‘1’ – 1.01 – a claim that is challenged by such a significant surge. The alleged situation on Merseyside is an alert to the rest of the nation of the dangers of Boris Johnson’s haste and determination to prematurely lift lock-down measures.
The SKWAWKBOX has warned that Johnson’s actions will lead to a ‘second wave’ of the type already seen in Iran, which is suffering a worse catastrophe than in its first wave.
The UK government is clearly aware of the likely results of its actions, as it has quietly more than tripled temporary mortuary capacity to 100,000 in anticipation of a huge new spike in virus-related deaths.
