Nearly half of coronavirus deaths linked to nursing homes; Gov. Cuomo complains of 'political heat'

Nearly half of all COVID-19 deaths in the United States are connected to nursing homes and long-term care centers, according to a new report from the New York Times.

The analysis found that there were more than 54,000 residents and workers at nursing homes and long-term care centers who have died from coronavirus-related illnesses. There were over 282,000 people infected at 12,000 senior facilities across the country. COVID-19 cases at nursing homes made up only 11% of all COVID-19 cases, but accounted for approximately 43% of the total U.S. deaths.

There were 24 states that had more than half of all COVID-19 deaths linked to nursing homes. New Hampshire was the highest at 80% of coronavirus deaths connected to long-term facilities, followed by Minnesota at 77%, Rhode Island at 77%, and Connecticut at 73%.

Well, we knew a long time ago that Covid was particularly fatal to those who were older, and those with other underlying conditions. These numbers shouldn't be shocking at all, they should be obvious.

If anything, it shows that we need to exercise more care in preventing it's spread to those most at risk.

Conveniently every 100 year old person that dies in a nursing home without a hole in the head can be labeled COVID and comes with a $15,000 check from the government. Americans are stupid. This means you. Suckers.
