Despite being warned that the care sector faces a staffing crisis, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that “no job, no jab” is here to stay. The PM told reporters on his visit on the US that there would be no exemptions.
Health ministers have told Johnson that the sector will lose at least 40,000 workers as a result of the new law. Under regulations set out by an amendment to the Health and Social Care Act 2008, no-one will be allowed in a care home after November 11th unless they have received two doses of a covid jab.
Johnson was asked last night, if he would consider delaying the law or giving exemptions to any care home facing closure due to a lack of staff. He said:
“No. I think that it’s only reasonable to expect people who are entrusted with the care of elderly and vulnerable people to be inoculated against a disease which is particularly harmful to elderly and vulnerable people.”
There’s a storm coming. A care worker told The Richie Allen Show last week, that hospitals will be jammed this Winter with senior citizens who cannot be discharged, because of the shortage of care workers in the community and in care homes.
The NHS comes under enormous pressure every Winter. Oxford Professor and GP Carl Heneghan told Talk Radio that the service has been in crisis 17 of the last 20 years. Bed capacity has halved in UK hospitals over the past thirty years.
The tyrannical (and illegal) move to mandate jabs for care workers will be catastrophic for the NHS this Winter. It’s classic problem, reaction, solution.
They’ve created the problem. The reaction from the public will be to scream, “Do something!” The solution will be brutal and devastating lockdowns, the introduction of so-called vaccine passports and increased pressure on those who have declined the jabs.
