A staggering death toll!

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has cost the lives of at least 154,333 Americans.

We know the disease caused by this coronavirus is far more dangerous for the elderly. Statistics show that deaths in the United States have disproportionately taken place in long-term care facilities. While only 0.6% of Americans live in such complexes, over 45% of coronavirus deaths nationwide have occurred inside their walls.

That comes out to over 70,000 deaths!

The following Democrat governors forced facilities like nursing homes to accept residents who contracted COVID-19 — despite having no way of knowing if they had fully recovered.

The New York State Department of Health, under Cuomo’s supervision, issued a directive on March 25 to nursing home administrators and hospital discharge planners, ordering them to expedite the admission of residents following their hospital discharge.

The advisory stated:

No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.

The New York Department of Health has since purged the document from its website, but a screenshot is available online.

New York’s long-term care facilities have recorded 6,588 confirmed and suspected COVID-19 deaths or 20% of the state’s death toll.

Gavin Newsom seems to love meddling in the private lives of his citizens. After issuing one of the strictest shelter-in-place orders in the country, his office released a list of outdoor activities that were still permissible, including watching the sunset and playing catch. 

Less reported was a memorandum dictating that long-term care facilities must readmit residents with suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.

California’s long-term care facilities have recorded 2,775 COVID-19 deaths, approximately 30% of the Golden State’s death toll thus far.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health issued instructions for nursing facilities during the pandemic on March 18.

Like other states, visitations were suspended indefinitely, excluding end-of-life situations.

However, the memo also stated that nursing care facilities must accept both new admissions and re-admissions for current residents who contracted COVID-19 to relieve the burden on hospital ICUs.

Pennsylvania’s long-term care facilities have recorded 4,708 COVID-19 deaths — 65% of the state’s death toll.

A similar memorandum from the New Jersey Department of Health went out to long-term care facilities demanding compliance with the following instructions:

No patient/resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the post-acute care setting solely based on a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19. Persons under investigation for COVID-19 who have undergone testing in the hospital shall not be discharged until results are available. Post-acute care facilities are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized patient/resident who is determined medical stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or re-admission.

New Jersey’s long-term care facilities have recorded 6,608 COVID-19 deaths. Roughly 42% of all New Jerseyans who succumbed to the coronavirus so far have resided in nursing homes and related facilities.

I hope so but doubt it and doesn’t compare to abortion taking 60+ million lives.

Stop talking like they made a mistake. At probably $50,000 or more per year, they got rid of a huge expense. Same thing Obamacare set out to do. Never let a crisis go to waste. Trying to get the numbers high to hurt Trump is just an added bonus to the,

That’s $50k per person on Medicaid. New York and New Jersey are probably a lot higher. Do the math, that’s a lot of votes they can buy with that windfall. $3.5 billion + per year. Add to that all the people they literally killed in NY hospitals for $30,000 a patient plus they’re yearly welfare and Medicare expense that a lot of them had since the bad hospitals were in the lowest income neighborhoods

Just had a thought. That is 150,000 votes that they would have had by the hands of those who control those nursing homes. Oh, that is right. They will still have them.

They also got rid of an entire population of senior voters who would have voted for Trump.

You seem to be trying to make it seem that they are concerned about spending money. That is the furthurest thing from the truth ever. All of their actions are evil.
1. Death of elderly
2. Deficit spending to add 5 trillion to the deficit and hasten the collapse of our dollar.
3. Getting rid of those elderly who they think vote consertvative
4. Numbers on covid to make brain dead milleials think that Trump is responsible for the down turn in the economy
5. Destruction of the economy, destruction of small businesses they hate, fines of thousands to those who refuse to obey their tyrannical orders.
