Gretchen Whitmer underestimated COVID deaths in nursing homes by up to 30%

A 2020 study revealed that 45% of all coronavirus deaths in the US occurred in nursing homes.

Only 0.6% of the US population lives in nursing homes, but more than 45% of coronavirus deaths occurred in these centers.

In August 2020, Trump’s Justice Department requested data from four Democratic governors on their orders to send sick COVID-19 patients to nursing homes.

As TGP reported multiple times last year: Five Democratic Governors sent COVID-19 patients to nursing homes.

Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan was one of the governors who sent sick patients to nursing homes in her state.

But in July 2021, Biden’s Justice Department dropped all investigations into Democratic governors who dumped sick COVID patients into nursing homes and killed tens of thousands of older Americans.

And now, a new auditor general report expected to be released Monday indicates that Michigan and Governor Whitmer may have underestimated nursing home deaths by 30 percent.

Great Lakes News reported:

The state may not have counted hundreds or possibly thousands of people who died from COVID-19 in Michigan nursing homes.

This comes from a new auditor general report that is expected to be released on Monday.

The report indicates that Michigan may have underestimated nursing home deaths by 30 percent.

Deadline Detroit reporter Charlie LeDuff, who sued the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) last May, alleged the state undercounted 42 percent.

LeDuff says that puts Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on par with former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
