Would it be feasible for all those destitute 'hospitality' workers to be quickly retrained as carers or nursing auxiliaries?
This will not be the first pandemic or the worst pandemic, and when this has abated there will still be a need to be prepared for the next pandemic.
From what I understand about 'hospitality' workers' (not a lot!) they are already imbued with the attitude of service and doing as they are told. I believe they would be ideal people to retrain for more specialised care.
Yes, I would love to be some use. I was a nurse and a lecturer in further education decades ago. Many mature students I met were the sort of capable people, home helps and the like, who would be great after a brief retraining.
