Bodies All Over the Place: Michigan Governor Undercounted COVID Nursing Home Deaths...By A LOT
Townhall.com ^ | 14 January A.D. 2022 | Matt Vespa

When she’s not the target of kidnapping plots hatched by FBI operatives, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is burying COVID death counts. Yes, she took a page from Andrew Cuomo’s playbook on the number of COVID deaths from nursing homes. Now, the undercount is not as high as Cuomo’s but it’s significant. It could be between 30-40 percent. At a minimum, Michigan’s nursing home deaths are 30 percent higher than the initial total. I would say that’s an impeachable offense (via Fox News):

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's administration undercounted the COVID-19 deaths in the state's long-term care facilities by 30%, according to a state auditor general report reviewed by Fox News.

The report, which is expected to be publicly released on Monday, is likely to renew criticism of the Democratic governor's performance during the pandemic.

Michigan state Rep. Steven Johnson, a Republican, told Fox News Digital in a Thursday phone call that Whitmer is "well known" for her executive order "to place COVID-positive patients into nursing homes."

"And when we were looking into this to see just how deadly that policy was, the nursing home death numbers we received from the department weren’t including everything," Johnson said, confirming the number in the report was 30%.

Johnson said there are "some serious questions that have to be asked" about the alleged undercounting and that "it does appear the people of Michigan were misled as to just how many nursing home deaths there were" due to Whitmer’s policies.

"Seeing that it’s actually 30% higher is quite significant — we’re talking about thousands of lives that were not initially included in the department’s count," Johnson continued.

So, we talk about COVID misinformation all the time, right? What do we call this when the true death counts are being cooked to prevent a backlash? Like in New York, it was totally avoidable. A contagious virus that’s going to be allowed to flow freely in a facility where the elderly and the sick are housed. Are we shocked these places became killing fields? Forget COVID and the lack of vaccines at the time—we’ve said this before if any virus gets into a nursing home complex—everyone is getting it. Why would Democrats think any differently with this virus? The media gave these clowns plenty of cover to implement bad policy. The aftermath can now be seen for all to see which are piles of dead bodies—literally. Yet, Ron DeSantis is somehow the grim reaper or something.

No rational, decent person who has studied history should expect truth from Marxists be they domestic or foreign.

Michigan nursing homes self-reported to the state Department of Health and Human Services 5,675 resident deaths due to COVID-19 during the first year-and-a-half of the pandemic, according to the report, which was reviewed by the Daily Caller ahead of its Monday release. However, the Office of the Auditor General identified an additional 2,386 nursing home and long-term care facility residents who died of the virus between those dates.

8,061

And as always, the real question is:

“Were these deaths ‘WITH’ COVID or deaths CAUSED BY COVID?”

As a Michigander I knowledgably agree 100%.

Her disregard for inconvenient human lives was shown by her pre-gubernatorial campaign enthusiastic work to promote on demand, all 9 months abortion rights without parental notification and without showing ultrasound images. Tireless in promoting abortion murder.

Knocking off inconvenient nursing home people? Nothing special to her. She read American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic by Andrew Cuomo. In its Cliff’s Notes 15 page abridged version. She’s kinda busy.

This was a lab all along to drive the numbers up not telling anyone that MOST of the people passing were very elderly with MANY underlying conditions!! Then the next thing they did NOT tell everyone was that obesity and diabetes were very dangerous with this virus!! They PUSHED FEAR day after day to get these shots into everyone!! Something VERY NEFARIOUS is going on here but it will be DECADES before we know the truth!!!

Color me skeptical. I watched COVID go through several rural nursing homes. As long as they stayed out of the hospital more recovered than I could imagine.
