Inside One of the Worst Covid Outbreaks in an American Nursing Home | WSJ

Nearly 100 people died during the height of the coronavirus outbreak at the Menlo Park Veterans Memorial Home in April, more than 10 times the number in a typical month. Among those who died were 84-year-old Isabella Kovacs and 86-year-old Joan Williams. Their stories provide a window into what went wrong at the New Jersey facility. Photo: Shari Davis/Julie Diaz

    Our American culture do not appreciate the elderly as much as other cultures. To have so many elders die should cause a societal uproar. It does not. They are locked away in their facilities to die alone. Out of sight, out of mind. “A nation's greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.”  Ghandi; We are failing as nation.

    This is tragic. Please don't forget where this came from. It has divided us more than we already are. We can't let China have as much influence on this country as it already does.

    It's like pearl harbour, make china pay the price for it. It should be a bi-partisan issue.

    We just lock people away in these tiny cubicles and they're the fortunate ones who can afford these expensive boxes. $5000.00 – $15000 per month! I don't look forward to old age. I don't think when I'm their age, convalescent homes will be affordable at this rate. 😰
