Care home crisis

This came before a segment on how care homes were coping during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Piers slammed the narrative that the virus "only affects the elderly, so we should not worry so much".

He pointed out "any decent society would put the vulnerable first. Every life should be as important."

It was also revealed that unlike the NHS, care homes are being charged VAT on PPE such as masks and gloves.

The GMB hosts empathised with those separated from their loved ones, due to the UK's lockdown measures.

Susanna Reid ended the section by saying: "We thank all those who work in care homes and all the families who would usually be going to visit their elderly or sick relatives."
