Hundreds of COVID-19 deaths could have been prevented by eliminating four-person nursing-home rooms: study

Post by Mark Fournier »

A new study points to a disturbingly simple explanation for some of the havoc wrought by COVID-19 in Canada’s nursing homes: keeping residents in ward-like shared accommodation can be lethal. The deaths of close to 300 long-term care residents in just one province could have been prevented if those individuals were housed in two-bed instead of four-bed rooms, suggests the research.
