EurekAlert: New database shows more than 20% of nursing homes still report staff, PPE shortages. “Nearly half of all COVID-19 deaths in the United States have occurred among nursing home residents, whose age, chronic medical conditions, and congregate living quarters place them and their caregivers at high risk of contracting the disease.
