Governor Walz is here to do two things during the coronavirus: shut down churches and kill grandmas.
“Hey Walz, how many grandmas did you kill today?”
And he won’t stop. The mere fact that 81% of coronavirus deaths in Minnesota have occurred in nursing homes won’t even slow his grandma-killing administration down. Anyone with a conscience would stop, good thing Walz is a real lefty.
Despite the devastating death toll, Minnesota nursing homes are still being allowed by state regulators to admit coronavirus patients who have been discharged from hospitals.
Early in the pandemic, the Minnesota Department of Health turned to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to relieve the burden on hospitals that were at risk of being overwhelmed by COVID-19 patients. Minnesota hospitals have since discharged dozens of infected patients to nursing homes, including facilities that have undergone large and deadly outbreaks of the disease, state records show.
Hospitals were never overwhelmed. This lockdown fetish killed horrifying numbers of seniors instead.
urrently, even poorly rated nursing homes with large and deadly clusters of coronavirus cases have been allowed to admit COVID-19 patients from hospitals. One such facility, North Ridge Health and Rehab in New Hope, has accepted 42 patients from hospitals and other long-term care facilities since mid-April even as the coronavirus has raged through its 320-bed nursing home, killing 48 of its patients and infecting scores more.
“It makes no sense to bring more COVID-19 patients into facilities that have already failed to protect them,” said Sen. Karin Housley, the Republican chairwoman of the Senate Family Care and Aging Committee. “If it were my mom or dad in one of these facilities, I would be really worried.”
Well she’s a Republican. Democrats understand that killing senior citizens is a pathway to justify more lockdowns and get more votes.
State health officials and long-term care industry representatives have defended the practice of discharging some COVID-19 patients to nursing homes, saying it is part of a broader strategy to conserve critical hospital beds during the pandemic.
Gotta conserve those empty hospital beds for the patients you don’t have and aren’t allowed to treat, in order to kill seniors.
Statewide, the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus has killed more than 600 Minnesotans at nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. That is a staggering 81% of the deaths from the pandemic statewide.
Not enough for Governor Grandma Killer.
