Care Provider Forced To Pay Additional Price For Masks Compared To Pricing Before Pandemic

A care home business boss, Alice Ushamba, burst into tears while describing her struggle to purchase masks for health workers. The care provider runs Hampshire Healthcare in the New Forest.

She disclosed that she is being forced to purchase the masks at an additional price compared to the price before the coronavirus outbreak. She accused the government of ignoring the health of frontline workers.

Her care home needs more than 200 of the protective items a day. But the government has issued only 300 in total. The care home is now spending £1,500 to purchase protective items for workers.

She said: “We used to buy 10 masks for £6. But now we are paying £60 to £100 pounds to pay a box of 50 masks. It is not sustainable to spend this much amount for only masks.”

Alice also disclosed that the quality of masks is also uncertain because she is not buying from her normal suppliers. She also revealed that most of her workers quit the job because they feel unsafe because of the lack of PPE.

The care home chief said that they are checking houses to find COVID19 patients. But they have no items to protect themselves. Care home workers only have few plastic aprons and gloves which are not enough for the whole staff.

Novel coronavirus has infected 124,743 people alone in UK and 16,509 were declared dead. Hospitals in UK have limited access to personal protective equipments.

Doctors said that they are forced to opt whether they exposed themselves to virus or letting a patient die on their watch.
