Rachel Levine Spares His Mom as Blue States Condemn Elderly to Death by COVID-19

Rachel Levine, the cross-dressing mental case serving as Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Health, has made ChiCom virus news once again. Earlier, it was for inflating the death toll. Now we learn that after helping to turn Pennsylvania nursing homes into death traps by forcing them to accept patients with Wuhan coronavirus, he removed his own mom from one.

From the Daily Caller:

Levine’s mother moved out of a personal care home with the health secretary’s help, after Levine ordered all nursing homes and long-term facilities in the state to accept coronavirus patients from hospitals.

Even Rachel Levine has a redeeming quality. He loves his mother. She is 95 years old, and was a sitting duck for Kung Flu while trapped in a personal care home, thanks to Levine’s own order. Other people’s mothers, he seems to care less about.

Levine probably doesn’t care much about Pennsylvania taxpayers either. In addition to the loss of life, there will be a monetary price for his mismanagement:

The state is facing a class-action lawsuit, filed April 28, that claims the department of health ceased inspecting long-term care facilities now plagued by the virus.

It isn’t just Pennsylvania. Other states under liberal rule have inflicted the virus on homes for the elderly. This has done wonders to drive up the death count, since the disease is far more serious for those of advanced age. Nursing homes account for one-third of all coronavirus deaths in the USA.

American Thinker takes stock of the damage:

In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration was responsible for a policy that mandated nursing homes to admit, or readmit, nursing home residents still contagious with COVID-19 after hospital stays, thereby spawning outbreaks at facilities previously free of the virus. This dangerous policy, which was reversed on May 10, contributed to many of the approximately 5,400 nursing home deaths through May 11 in New York, amounting to more than 5% of the 100,000 nursing home residents in the state, and has been an unmitigated disaster.

Meanwhile, the liberal media praises Cuomo’s handling of the situation.

California’s Gavin Newsom isn’t much better:

So far, at least 41% of COVID-19 deaths in California are from nursing homes with an estimated 72% of COVID-19 deaths in Long Beach, CA coming from nursing homes.

Notwithstanding the rate of COVID-19 in California’s nursing homes, Newsom approved a plan to effectively bribe nursing homes and assisted living communities to accept COVID-19 positive patients, paying small facilities of 6 or fewer residents $1,000 a day to accept them, with undisclosed rates for larger facilities.

Then there is the poster girl for COVID-19 tyranny, Gauleiter Gretchen:

In Michigan, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order that requires admission of COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes.

No worries; she keeps the death toll under control by forbidding people from buying garden seeds.

Let’s not forget New Jersey, where Governor Phil Murphy defended his authoritarian COVID-19 measures by shrugging that worrying about the Constitution is above his pay grade:

New Jersey had also called on nursing homes to admit COVID-19 positive patients. As of May 12, New Jersey reported that 52% of the COVID-19 related fatalities in the state were at 518 of the state’s long-term care facilities, or 4,953 out of 9,508 total deaths.

An estimated 11% of all New Jersey nursing home residents have died of the virus.

Imagine how low the coronavirus mortality rate would be if instead of closing down the entire economy and quarantining people who are neither sick nor particularly vulnerable, the government had isolated the elderly rather than coercively forcing the virus upon them. By now, herd immunity would have been achieved and the whole crisis would be over — which is possibly why authorities did not take this course of action.
