Residents living in a virus-affected aged care home have been found dehydrated and malnourished with potentially just hours to live.

A report revealed the conditions St Basil's aged care residents were exposed to before their emergency medical evacuation last night.

At least 30 people have been transferred from the facility to private hospitals for specialist care.

At least 10 aged care homes - including St Basil's - are now being investigated over concerns workers have been also put at risk while attempting to deal with coronavirus outbreaks.
