Total deaths on the NJ dashboard increased by 100. LTC confirmed deaths increased by 114. We’re at 47% of lab-confirmed COVID deaths being LTC residents. We’ve been over 50% if you use “reported” LTC deaths for awhile now.
Just a reminder that Murphy’s policy was for nursing homes to admit COVID positive patients. Similar policies were in place for most states with high COVID death totals.
Lockdowns did not save lives. They probably caused many deaths by serving as a distraction to the only appropriate policy which would have been to protect the sick and elderly. They’re the only ones dying of this virus. Instead, our rulers deliberately infected them due to a misguided fear that hospitals would be overrun.
