Coronavirus: 24 confirmed deaths in Erskine charity nursing homes

Twenty-four residents of Erskine’s nursing homes for former military men and women are believed to have died from coronaviruses.

Three residents in Erskine nursing homes died after the virus was diagnosed while another 21 died with suspected coronavirus. The charity said it hadn’t been able to test them since they recently received kits.

The association cares for over 300 residents in its four nursing homes, two in Bishopton, one in Glasgow and one in Edinburgh.

It has not been confirmed which houses have had deaths from the virus.

More information on:

More than 200 staff members or their families have suspected coronavirus, which means they have had to isolate themselves.

As also reported by the BBC, four staff members tested positive with one requesting hospital treatment.

Nursing homes were closed to families or visitors on March 16 and essential visits have been limited since then. None of the deaths occurred before March 16.

During the pandemic, 90 residents were “barrier treated” – people treated in isolation after showing symptoms. Forty-eight have since recovered, while 18 remain isolated.
