The Nursing Home/Press Virus

The New York Times says that nursing home deaths from COVID-19 are a defining scandal for Boris Johnson. But no mention of the fact that New York Governor Cuomo created the highest death count in the world, and half of US deaths by forcing nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients.

On a Scottish Isle, Nursing Home Deaths Expose a Covid-19 Scandal – The New York Times

AP count: Over 4,500 virus patients sent to NY nursing homes

Because of a wildly corrupt press corps in the US, Cuomo’s poll numbers are soaring, when he should be facing a criminal investigation.

Cuomo’s response to COVID-19 gives him highest approval rating

    Being sent to a nursing home is a death sentence. No one ever gets out alive.

    It’s odd that we never used to have headlines like ‘Scandal UK care homes abandoned to the flu virus’ but we do for CV19.

    Just more political/activist opportunism/destabilisation/propaganda…..

    It depends on the flu strains circulating (different demographics affected for various reasons), but it is extremely common for flu outbreaks to be especially severe in care comes – there are gov. action plans/leaflets for care home managers to mitigate it.

    Even as recently as 2015:-

    “Public Health England has also suggested that the high number of deaths could be linked to outbreaks[flu] in care homes, and an especially high incidence among older people.”

    “There were outbreaks in care homes and admissions to hospital and intensive care for flu were higher than usual.”

    The Isle of Skye comes under the Scottish Govt, so has nothing to do with Boris. Death rates in Scottish (SNP) and Welsh (Labour Welsh Govt) are higher than in England.

    Also death rates in most European care homes are also higher

    …Cuomo’s poll numbers are soaring….

    In my 11th year of being awakened, I should not be surprised anymore that the public are so totally vulnerable to media/gov propaganda and spin. Those at the top of this experiment must be giddy with joy at what they pulled off.

  5. Johansen says:

    “no resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the (nursing home) solely based on confirmed or suspected COVID-19”.

    Looking back, it’s hard to believe this is even real stuff

  6. John F. Hultquist says:

    The record approval ratings for Cuomo indicate either the poll or the citizens of NY are flawed.

    Ah well! Just another day for “the press”. Their level of hate for Trump has driven them to new heights.

    Remember when not long ago the left and their press were saying that churches are sanctuaries and when illegal aliens took refuge in them ICE had darn well better not invade their sacrosanct space to do their duty and take the illegal(s) into custody?

    Well now that doesn’t apply to US citizens going into Churches in even some “sanctuary cities” which refuse to cooperate with ICE!

    And now the WH press corp is trying to paint it’s self as victims after WH Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany rightfully guts the liars and deceivers right in front of everyone then walks off smiling as they scream in pain. These press briefings are becoming more like public executions of the “press”. Never seen anything like it! CNN couldn’t take it! They cut away. Too funny! Best show on earth.

    Anyway, I await Cuomo’s approval numbers when the panic has passed and his constituents have to deal with a totally bankrupt (over 6.1 Billion dollars in the red) state?

    “Infants seemed immune; with very few cases in the 2-5 group. To the old it was a ‘death-hastener’.” SAGE journal re. 1951 flu.

    Amazing how the NY Times can spot negligence in faraway Scotland and the British Guardian can spot supposed malfeasance and/or negligence in faraway America, but neither can see it in their own backyard. Ah, globalism.

  12. Taphonomic says:

    Pennsylvania was doing the same thing, stuffing recovering Covid patients Into nursing homes with disastrous results. The transsexual Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine, somehow managed to take its mother out of a nursing home prior to the influx of Covid patients.

    Michigan and New Jersey did the same thing to nursing homes.
