An outbreak of the coronavirus would be ‘quite useful’ for taking out hospital bed blockers states local man.
Roy Ambrose, from Freckleton, has suggested that the pandemic of Covid-19 would enable hospitals with delayed discharges to improve as ‘these people would be taken out the system’. He added that the system is not designed around the needs of older people becasue there is not enough people to care for them outside of hospital. A pandemic would solve this problem.
Mr Ambrose later clarified his comments as being made ‘ironically’.
