62% of COVID deaths in Canada happened in nursing homes:
Canada has the HIGHEST proportion of deaths in #LTC settings among 14 countries. @RyersonNIA+@BruyereCare researchers have been supporting the int @LTCCovid Project to understand where we stand and how we can better address #COVID-19 in these settings.
It’s a gigantic fail on the part of Canada and my heart goes out to the people who lost somebody in this disaster. There are no clear numbers on the US yet (and if you don’t know why, you aren’t paying attention) but I have a feeling they are close.
By the way, talking about science, every time I curse out Pritzker on Twitter a crowd of really illiterate impressionable ladies descend on me to berate me, in tweets filled with spelling mistakes to LISTEN TO THE SCIENCE. It’s hilarious until I remember that because of these emotional ladies we aren’t getting out of quarantine any time soon.
