Absent in the reporting of daily cases and the non-stop spreading of COVID Fear by the mainstream media, as we have been reporting for months, on a global scale, some 50 percent of all deaths from COVID-19 are in elder care facilities.
Remember, when the virus first struck the U.S in March, the vast majority of victims were from nursing homes in Kirkland, WA.
It’s a trend. This past week, federal data showed COVID-19 deaths are again on the rise in U.S. nursing homes, with a 14 percent increase the week ending 26 July and a 24 percent increase from the first week of July.
The actual data of elder care deaths from the virus in fact may be much worse. Many nursing home numbers are not representative of the true amount of deaths that may have occurred because there are gaps in reporting, inconsistency of data submitted before late May, and many elder care homes have not reported deaths before May. Yet, even with a data shortage, according to the Wall Street Journal, Florida’s eldercare facilities, as with the rest of the nation on average, account for at least 42 percent of all virus deaths.
Also, with the virus most deadly for the elder population, Florida, with one in five of its residents age 65, has one the highest percentages of senior citizens of any state.
According to the 17 July CDC report, “COVID-19 mortality is higher in persons with underlying medical conditions” and “a majority were aged ≥65 years.”
Since March, there have been an estimated 3,155 deaths among the elderly in Florida nursing homes. Subtracted from the 7,526 total deaths in Florida as of last week, it equals 4,371 people outside nursing homes that died in the entire state of 21.4 million people or the grand total 0.0203 percent of the population.
Despite Florida being one of the first states to put extra protection in elder facilities, which has been credited for saving many lives, the mainstream media and political opposition blame the recent rise of infections (a seven-day average of 56 deaths) on incompetent governing.
King Cuomo
When comparing Florida’s deaths with New York’s, Governor Andrew Cuomo is lauded by the press and public for his handling of the virus despite his removing elderly people stricken with COVID from hospitals and sending them to nursing homes, thus spiking the eldercare death rate.
To date, New York has recorded 32,847 coronavirus deaths, or 0.168 of 19.5 million residents, compared to 8,277 in Florida, a state of 21.5 million.
When looking at the states with the highest percentage of death rates, New York is second behind New Jersey, which also has a high eldercare death rate, while Florida is much better off (18th overall), despite the higher population of senior citizens.
TRENDPOST: While the media keep blasting out “new cases,” nationally, the virus infections have not been leading to deaths as they were at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak. According to “COVID Tracking Project,” there were a total of 25,295 deaths in July compared to 54,000 in April. 
TRENDPOST: Again, as we have been reporting since the virus outbreak hit the U.S. in March, both then and now, virus deaths persist in nursing homes.
For example, in New Hampshire, nursing homes account for 82 percent of total deaths; Kentucky, 63 percent; Indiana and Ohio, 54 percent.
On average, more than 60 percent of the COVID-19 reported deaths in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island were in nursing homes.
Yet, despite these facts, the vast majority of the Americans, as with many from other nations, live in fear and misery that they will be targeted as virus victims.
Regardless of these facts of who is dying from the virus and why, countries continue to lock down, destroying business and livelihoods.
