70% of Wuhan Virus Deaths in Pennsylvania Come From Nursing Homes

Published

on

Earlier last week, the Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health revealed that her 95-year-old mother was moved from a nursing home facility into a hotel.

This came at a time when the state government was ordering these facilities to accept patients who tested positive with the Wuhan virus.

This policy was issued on March 18 and specified that retirement homes “must continue to accept new admissions and receive readmissions for current residents who have been discharged from the hospital who are stable,” include residents who have caught the Wuhan virus. The policy was created to “alleviate the increasing burden in the acute care settings.”

The rule may have a played role in creating a significant death toll in the state’s elderly care institutions. The bulk of the deaths in the Keystone State took place in nursing homes, over 2,400 of the state’s approximately 4,000 deaths.

Even when Wuhan virus patients were being moved into state nursing homes, the state’s Secretary of Health, Rachel Levine, took her mother from one of those facilities and put her in a hotel instead.

Levine admitted this on May 12, 2020  while talking to Pennsylvania media, declaring that “she and her sister complied with their mother’s request to move from a personal care home to another location,” according to a report from the Allentown Morning Call report.

The admission does raise questions about state health officials being potentially aware of the devastating threat that the Wuhan virus presented to nursing homes even when they ordered said facilities to accept Wuhan virus patients.

Various states have been tackling with Wuhan virus outbreaks at nursing homes. The data show that the Wuhan virus disproportionately hurts older and sicker individuals, two groups that are over-represented at care facilities across the country.

New York State has witnessed significant numbers of care facility deaths during the past several months, which likely caused Governor Andrew Cuomo to rescind the state’s previous directive, which is similar to Pennsylvania’s, that nursing homes would be mandated to accept Wuhan virus patients.

Daniel Payne of Just The News highlighted that “Emails that surfaced last month showed state officials refusing one nursing home’s request to transfer coronavirus patients into emergency care facilities.”

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
