Liz questions Minister over problems getting PPE to the frontline

Almost 8,000 people have died in care homes, and we are still seeing serious problems with getting personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontline care workers.

I’ve heard directly from care staff who have only just received PPE, and many are having to re-use the same mask all day. This is absolutely unacceptable – we need more action to get PPE to the frontline, to make care workers a priority for testing (especially getting tests to their own homes) and to ensure proper support from the NHS.
