Nurses don't give medication's based on "resident managers." You have to have a doctor's orders. That story smells fishy...Headlines all over the country of folks young and old who were given hydroxychloroquine and died.
"At one nursing home 14 residents whose deaths were tied to covid-19 were never actually tested for the infection. Of those, 11 had been given hydroxychloroquine before they died under orders of the residence manger over the objections of the nurses working there."
Under the Trump cult truth has given way to a barrage of lies, science facts are 'fake news', everything a misdirection ploy to take attention away from the greatest malfeasance and incompetance of leadership in our nations history.
That sound you hear is the beginning death throes of the Republican party whose Faustian deal with the cult leader bought them massive tax breaks and a Supreme Court majority they have been desperate for, and now it will cost them the future of their party.
Billy is 100% correct, the link below has the story. It involves a clinician in a TX nursing home running an 'observational' study, it's an interesting read. It's not noted but alluded too, the fact that their is no or limited informed consent to take part in this or I doubt ethical review and approval of the study. This is a series of fundamental human rights violations but who cares...Nurses don't give medication's based on "resident managers." You have to have a doctor's orders. That story smells fishy...
other's noted this a little earlier, but how does that mesh with the very recent death spikes in those two states? these spikes showed up just a week ago - why weren't their spikes softened/mitigated by the factors you mention? i do have the other metric you mentioned also so i'll swap it into the pivot and see what it shows. thanks for the reply.@dflett68 It is true that as the number of new cases rise so do the numbers of deaths. But the number of hospitalizations and number of deaths may be a better comparison because the higher number of asymptomatic/mild cases being found during testing. Nature of the virus.
Also treatments are getting better and better all the time since more information is known/shared about the virus. So the 1-3 weeks after a spike in new hospitalization cases occurs, it may be longer before a death spike occurs. Also survivability appears to be increasing also.
