New analysis by columnist Phil Kerpen indicates that half of coronavirus deaths recorded throughout the United States have come out of nursing homes.
— Gregg Keller (@RGreggKeller) May 8, 2020
Kerpen’s data indicates that there have been 32,161 COVID-19 deaths inside nursing homes out of 62,740 overall coronavirus deaths, accounting for 51.6 of the overall death total. These are the numbers including New York, which has been doubled to compensate for hospital deaths being excluded.
Without New York included in the total, there have been 21,620 nursing home COVID-19 deaths out of a total of 41,764 overall coronavirus deaths throughout the country, which accounts for 51.8 percent of the overall death total.
In some states, the number surpasses 50 percent by a wide margin.
Current nursing home death percentages (and rising):
North Carolina 60%
New Jersey 50%

The number of coronavirus deaths out of nursing homes has consistently risen, and the most vulnerable have been put needlessly at risk due to the tragic decisions of Democrat governors in blue states.
Michigan state senator Lana Theis of Brighton called out anti-Trump Governor Gretchen Whitmer for allowing COVID-19 patients to be housed at nursing homes and infect the most vulnerable needlessly.
“Given that 64% of deceased COVID-19 patients in Michigan are over the age of 70, it simply does not make sense to unnecessarily increase the risk of infection and death of existing nursing home residents by moving in people who have already been infected by the new coronavirus,” said Theis in a press release.
“I respectfully suggest that this practice be immediately discontinued and that such persons be relocated to alternative sites, perhaps including existing field hospitals that have been constructed for the express purpose of treating COVID-19,” she added.
In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo actually issued an edict forcing nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients. This has caused observers to say that Cuomo has “blood on his hands” for his decision.
Morbidly, the state of New York gave body bags to nursing homes as the coronavirus patients were transferred there.
“My colleague noticed that one of the boxes was extremely heavy. Curious as to what could possibly be making that particular box so much heavier than the rest, he opened it,” an executive from a Queens nursing home said told the New York Post last month.
“The first two coronavirus patients were accompanied by five body bags,” the whistleblower added.
The health care executive was flabbergasted at Cuomo’s mismanagement of the entire situation and the lives that have been lost as a result.
“Cuomo has blood on his hands. He really does. There’s no way to sugarcoat this,” the executive said.
“Why in the world would you be sending coronavirus patients to a nursing home, where the most vulnerable population to this disease resides?” they added.
The crisis has been worsened because of Democrat mismanagement, which may be more than mere incompetence. They may have used this crisis to knock some elderly voters off before they have the chance to vote in November.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
