Elderly abandoned in various asylums in Spain were found living with the corpses of people who would have died from COVID-19 when they were visited by the Military Emergency Unit (UME) in order to disinfect these facilities.

Defense Minister Margarita Robles explained that UME agents came across the shocking scenes during inspection visits to the homes of the elderly - and revealed that most of the cases belonged to places where part of the staff had been discharged after cases of coronavirus detected.

"The army, in some visits, has been able to see absolutely abandoned elderly, if not dead in their beds," said the official. "We are going to be absolutely implacable and forceful in the treatment given to the elderly in these residences," added the newspaper El País.

According to the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, José Luois Ábalos, the protocol indicates that when the death of a person is detected due to suspicion of coronavirus, the corpse cannot be touched until a team arrives with the necessary instruments to avoid further infections, reported the newspaper El Mundo.

Concern about the risk of spreading viruses in these centers increased considerably after 79 deaths of the elderly were recorded in residences across the country. The vast majority of the residences reviewed are located in the Community of Madrid, El Mundo reported.

The Association of Directors and Managers of Social Services indicates that there are about 400,000 seniors who live in residences, in which some 180,000 people work. The State Attorney General's Office opened an investigation to investigate "the alarming situation" in which people living in extreme health situations are also reported, concluded El País.
