Over 64 percent of May-August CCP virus deaths occurred in health care settings

More than 64 percent of CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus deaths between May and August occurred in health care settings, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Between May 1 and Aug. 31, the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) recorded a total of 114,411 deaths from the CCP virus, with 64.3 percent of these deaths occurring in an inpatient facility, which includes nursing homes.

The report comes as new research shows 78.2 percent of people who have died from the CCP virus were over 65.

Various states had policies that nursing homes couldn’t refuse to admit patients regardless of their COVID-19 status.

The New York State Department of Health issued an order in March (pdf) that stated, “No resident shall be denied readmission or admission to a nursing home solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo changed the advisory on May 10 with an executive order that required hospitals to be sure patients tested negative before discharging them to nursing homes, but continued the mandate against denying residents admission to nursing homes based on testing results.

However, the original March order still stands, and nursing homes are still mandated against denying residents admission to nursing homes based on testing results.

“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected the elderly, especially those living in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities,” House Republicans wrote in a letter (pdf) to Josh Shapiro, the attorney general of Pennsylvania, on June 25.

“Just about the worst possible thing to do is knowingly introduce coronavirus to the most vulnerable populations, yet that’s exactly what several states did by mandating nursing homes accept infected patients,” House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis member Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) said in a statement.

“These misguided policies deserve close scrutiny, and the leaders who put them in place have a lot of tough questions to answer.”

Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) said that the actions of certain governors in issuing executive orders to not allow nursing homes to reject COVID-19 patients was irresponsible.

“As the rest of the nation practiced social distancing and exercised caution to slow the spread of the virus, certain governors forced untested or potentially contagious COVID-19 patients to be readmitted to nursing homes and long-term care facilities, endangering the lives of staff and an extremely vulnerable group of Americans,” he said.
