At the OlmenEs care centre in Appelscha, 37 residents have tested positive according to director Rob de Breij and as reported by the Omrop Fryslân. The OlmenEs centre is used by adults with disabilities and is run by a co-operative.
On Friday, all 130 residents were tested, and 25 positive results recorded- with some residents having tested positive before.
“We’re concentrating on continuing our care services”, says De Breij. “The majority of residents that have tested positive have mild symptoms, but it’s a scary experience for all involved”.
Carers have to have their wits about them, says De Breij, “our residents won’t always recognize the symptoms in themselves”, he says. That was also the reason that all 130 residents were tested on Friday. “Since infected people can pass the virus on without having symptoms, and that has been borne out by out test results”, he says.
Those residents that do test positive are to be cared for in their own rooms, or at a sister-organisation (OlmenEs has three).
On Sunday 90 people tested positive for the Coronavirus, slightly down on Saturday (103). Most of the new cases were recorded in Súdwest-Fryslân (22), and Leeuwarden 20), reports the Omrop Fryslân. Positive tests were also recorded on all of the Frisian Wadden Islands.
