Report: Nearly half of all coronavirus deaths in US occurred inside nursing homes

NEW YORK -- Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports.

The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate. While only 11%  of positive cases – around 282,000 – have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43% of deaths – or 54,000 deaths – have come from the same, the New York Times reported.
