One Third of U.S. COVID-19 Fatalities Lived or Worked in Nursing Homes


May 13, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — About one out of every three people who have died from the coronavirus lived or worked in long-term healthcare residential facilities in the U.S. A confluence of circumstances make nursing homes around the country dangerous places to live and work as these facilities are often understaffed and the staff are overworked. 

Nursing homes, skilled care facilities, and other long-term healthcare managed facilities have been epicenters for the coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified residents in nursing homes and other facilities as high-risk patients for COVID-19. The relatively advanced age of nursing home patients, the amount of residents living in close quarters, coupled with possible underlying health problems, elevates the risk that the virus can be deadly.

European nursing home residents are dying at a higher rate than nursing home residents from the United States. Nearly 50 perfect of coronavirus tragic deaths in the E.U. were people who lived in care facilities.
