Eight old dead and 27 others infected in a residence in Seville

Eight elderly people have died and 27 are infected by coronavirus in the private residence of the elderly Domus VI in Seville, located near the Santa Justa station, as reported by the Federation of Andalusian Senior Organizations (FOAM) tonight, citing data offered to relatives by the direction of the center.

According to these data, among the workers of the center there are 10 confirmed cases with COVID-19 and 20 isolated in their homes as a preventive measure that are pending the testing.

FOAM has indicated that the center “has been medicalized since last Saturday” by the Board’s Health Department, the day on which it took over its management.

The president of the FOAM, Martín Durá, has criticized in a statement to the management of the residence for “having hidden, lied, deceived and not having provided information to the relatives of the residents.”

He has also denounced that the Andalusian Government “has not taken adequate measures to prevent the proliferation of the virus, neither in this nor in any other nursing home.”

The residence hall has 150 users out of a total of about 180 places and of the elderly who have tested positive, four have been transferred to the Hotel Alcora, medicalized by the Andalusian Health Service (SAS) as part of the measures to fight the pandemic.
