Here in my German state 40 % of *********-19 deaths over this winter were nursing home residents
Yeah, a substantial number then. And, of course, nursing home residents would be likely to have health issues that still make them more susceptible than the population at large. Also I believe younger populations make up a much higher rate of hospitalizations than deaths. But as nursing home residents were/are among the first people vaccinated, we could see a notable drop in deaths based on the vaccinations to that specific population alone. Even with potentially 90+% of the population left to be fully vaccinated. I feel like every week helps with relation to that most susceptible nursing home population.We were told by our local health department that every single nursing home and assisted living facility in our county had CV deaths. They listed the facilities and how many CV deaths occurred at each one. One of them had over 100 deaths. We've had a total of 171 CV deaths in our county so clearly most of the deaths were from these facilities, and over half from one facility alone. Huge fail.
