A TEAM of health inspectors are checking nursing homes across Alicante Province to make sure that they’re following the official rules to stop the coronavirus spreading.

A significant proportion of local deaths since the start of the crisis have come in such homes, with 26 people dying at one Alcoy residence.

Thirty inspectors have been busy across the area to ensure that every home has the right procedures in place should a case of Covid-19 be detected.

Greater coronavirus testing has been promised for residence home staff and health professionals by Valencian health minister, Ana Barceló, but the massive issue is the lack of test kits.
