Uncheckable: 50,000 tests were planned and performed in nursing homes during the week of April 13 to 19

On Sunday, April 19, Olivier Véran, French Health Minister, said in a press conference that “This week, 50,000 tests were planned and administered in nursing homes.” But 50 000 might seem like a large number solely for nursing homes, and given the importance of these tests – especially for the elderly – it is necessary to verify if 50,000 of them were given in one week.
