Care home staff concerned Scottish government still not reporting full death toll

Over the past few weeks, this programme has revealed the lack of accurate data around deaths in care homes across the UK.

Until now, the number of Covid-19 deaths in care homes has been based on testing, of which there’s been relatively little, and information from death certificates.

But this programme revealed allegations that information may not be accurate.

Now a Scottish care home tells us five of its residents may not have been included in the official coronavirus death toll.
