Skip to comments.Nearly half of all coronavirus deaths in US occurred inside nursing homes: report

Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports.
The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases around 282,000 have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths or 54,000 deaths have come from the same, the New York Times reported.
The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The numbers are based on official confirmations from states, counties and the facilities themselves, as well as some data provided by the federal government, the newspaper said.
According to the data, the states with the highest number of deaths in nursing homes were New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania all of which recorded more than 4,000 deaths in nursing homes.
Nursing home populations are at higher risk for infection and death from the coronavirus, experts have said. Even as the average age of infected populations has shifted lower, the average age of death has shifted higher.
Individuals with underlying health conditions are especially susceptible to infection, and the likelihood of developing such conditions increases with age. Additionally, the virus spreads more easily in confined areas, and the concentration of residents helps the virus spread even faster.
At the state level, the difference is even more pronounced, with some states seeing care facility residents and workers account for half of all deaths from the virus.

Those Governors got away with murder. Just using the words of Nancy PeLousy.
A few officials need to be brought up on mass murder charges
Id like to know tge extent of those in my. Theyre covering for ac
Leave it to the Chinese to purposely off the elderly in an efficient manner.
Is that a new dialect?
A few typos and occlusions, but what the poster was trying to say, it was the NYT, covering for AOC.
But yeah, I got the drift of it right away.
As for the people who deliberately sent the human 'smallpox blankets' to the nursing homes, strip their sovereign immunity for violating 18 USC §§ 241 and 242, open the floodgates for a thousand wrongful death civil lawsuits, and no future governor will risk everything he or she owns and their coveted civil service pension.
Anyone who lost a loved one has standing to sue for wrongful death. Anyone.
While we're at it criminal charges are in order.
LouieFisk found this gem:
Theres whats called depraved heart murder - from Findlaw cuz I dont trust my memory right now:It seems to me that forcing nursing homes to accept patients who are infected or still infectious, while safe alternatives were available, would be an act of a "depraved heart".
Often the intent to kill (or malice aforethought) element of murder can be satisfied by showing that the defendant showed extreme indifference to human life. These are also known as depraved heart murders.
Acting with extreme recklessness and knowing that act is dangerous to human life (i.e., firing through the floor of your third-story apartment) and ending a human life may satisfy this intent element, even if the person never intended to kill anyone. This has been argued in fatal DUI cases in which the driver was far too intoxicated to form any intent.
Bring federal depraved heart murder charges against any governor who ordered infectious patients into facilities with the very most vulnerable people, and any minion who executed those orders.
They've earned the full Michael Flynn treatment, lets make sure the get it...
I believe ESPECIALLY Dr. Levine who knew this would happen, the proof being she moved his own mother out of the nursing home before she forced the eldercare facilities to accept infectious patients.
It looks like mass murder under the color of law, if we could reasonably assume there is anyone else in the Pennsylvania power structure is bright enough to realize that putting highly infectious people into the very most vulnerable population is a bad idea we could include them in conspiracy charges.
Yes. Its the autocorrect dialect of English. Most annoying to all readers.
Id like to know the extent of those in NY nursing homes. There were nearly 5,000 They seem to be covering for the gov in NY. A bit of gaslighting. Oh so many deaths in Nsg homes. Inevitable.
AC had the mercy ship, the javits center and a brand new hospital in Brooklyn. They went empty as he ordered all sick elderly into nursing homes, places
Where residents families were not allowed yet sick patients were forced into. LVNs and nursing assts man these places with a few if not just one RN in charge. No protective equipment and or training.
Thanks much. AC is btw the governor. AOC has been basement hiding
Not so fast!
There is no statute of limitations on murder.
They haven't gotten away, charges can be brought for the rest of their miserable lives.
It would be appropriate to do this before November, or - God forbid - it may never happen.
What d’you know!
When I mentioned it (this, and the age group) in early-mid May, somebody said BS and nothing else for me to retort.
Not more than a week ago in the DEM strong hold of NC DEM GOV KING COOPER it was being reported that those kinds of deaths were in the range of 63-69%! how did they fall so quickly? Help from MSM? EVERYTHING TODAY IS A LIE!
Granny-Killing Trannys and Democrats
Are they counting nursing home patients who died in hospitals?
“In early May, those reports quietly began omitting long-term care residents who died of coronavirus in hospitals.”
When Dems steal an election, the narrative is “we need to count all the votes.” Will we count all the nursing home victims?
“Not more than a week ago in the DEM strong hold of NC DEM GOV KING COOPER it was being reported that those kinds of deaths were in the range of 63-69%! how did they fall so quickly?”
What exactly does this mean?
FOLLOW THE MONEY...a Medicare patient admitted with a diagnosis of COVID to the hospital nets the hospital an additional 9K reimbursement. When they go to the ICU as they get sicker, an additional 39K!!
If they survive-shoot them off to the nursing home where they might be able to spread the illness to others....rinse repeat.
