In an attempt to shield care home residents from infection, 150 care home residents without symptoms are being moved into hotel accommodation in Barcelona.
So far, 1 out of every 4 deaths from COVID-19 in Barcelona is a care home residents. Currently (29th March), more than half of all care homes in Barcelona have at least one resident with COVID-19.
In South Korea this appears to work the other way round: the residents who test positive for COVID-19 are moved to special quarantine/treatment centres.
