@SenToomey voted no, saying the pandemic struck Pennsylvania seniors in nursing homes “disproportionately hard compared to other states” and “this was due, in part, to poor decisions and oversight by Dr. Levine and the Wolf administration.”
Americans are well aware of the nursing home scandal in New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo allowed overflow COVID-19 patients to be sent to the worst possible place.
Well, it looks like New York may not be alone. The same thing might have happened next door in Pennsylvania, and perhaps worse. Pennsylvania has over 70,000 cases of COVID-19, with roughly 5,400 deaths. Of these fatalities, a staggering 70 percent (my last count) are in nursing homes. In some counties, the percentages are even higher.
