Ex-workers describe 'panic' at care home hit by virus





"Crazy, everybody's panicking, everybody's saying I've been near so-and-so and I've been here and I've spoken to this person and I've been in the same room as him. Just complete panic."

See if there's a symbol in SLOTXO a bounty multiplier.

That is how care worker Fiona Hopkin, then 19, describes the aftermath of the first known positive Covid-19 case at Glenabbey Manor care home in April 2020.

Within weeks, 14 residents were dead - one of the worst outbreaks in a care home in Northern Ireland in the first wave of the pandemic.

Amid new calls for a public inquiry into what happened in care homes then, BBC Spotlight has been investigating what happened at Glenabbey Manor, as told by families of the residents and some of the staff who worked there.

Few of us will ever forget the cloud of dread hanging over the spring of 2020. The season representing renewal and hope inverted.

For staff at Glenabbey Manor, on the outskirts of north Belfast, the anxiety was magnified.

Former employees Clara Wilson and Rhonda McKeown had seen the dreadful impact Covid was already having on Spanish care homes and feared the same was coming their way.

Glenabbey had been warned by inspectors about its infection control measures the previous autumn and went into lockdown early on 13 March.

Over the next two months, almost one in every five residents of the home died from the virus.

The former staff told BBC Spotlight NI's Covid and Care: Searching for Answers programme how government guidance on mask wearing left them short of personal protective equipment (PPE) by today's standards; how they fought to get medical attention for the sick; and how they watched some residents struggling for breath as they died.

Eighteen months on, they still have questions.
