Police find 17 bodies piled up in New Jersey nursing home morgue

Andy Treble died on Wednesday

The outbreak, and problems with how bodies are handled, prompted the governor to order an investigation Thursday.

While he recognized that some long-term care facilities across the country have bad actors during moments like this, Murphy said that "New Jersey can lead in how we respond to these issues". The following day, the elderly man was transferred from the Belmont Manor nursing home to the hospital, where he was tested for the coronavirus. In Massachusetts, 37% of people testing positive for the virus are 60 or older, and according to state data, the vast majority of recent fatalities have been people in their 70s and older.

The Unison survey found that despite weeks of advance warnings to care companies and the government, care staff are still woefully short of PPE to protect both themselves and the vulnerable people they care for. When officers arrived, they found that corpses had been removed from the shed. "Another donator wrote", it broke our heart when we got the news.

"I am also outraged that bodies of the dead were allowed to pile up in a makeshift morgue at the facility", Murphy added.

A FutureCare nursing home in Northwest Baltimore has recorded 170 positive cases of COVID-19, Mayor Jack Young said Wednesday.

"It's a global pandemic, there's nothing they could have done to prevent it", she said.

Health agencies are now sending staff out to monitor the care center "on a regular basis", Persichilli said.

Thirteen bodies were moved to a refrigerated truck at a neighbouring hospital, while the remaining four were to be sent to a funeral home.

Insurers told to speed up virus payouts
In addition, firms who refuse to pay out were told to explain why and how they believe it represents a fair outcome for consumers. The goal of today's letter is to focus specifically on insurer's conduct in relation to business interruption ("BI") insurance.

The Sussex County Department of Health reported that as of Thursday morning, 103 of the county's 554 cases of COVID-19 are in Andover Township. An additional 99 residents have respiratory symptoms, along with 48 staff members.

"The member of staff had been receiving hospital care in relation to Covid-19 symptoms".

The mayor told News 12 New Jersey that the facility had been ordered not to accept new patients.

The total amount of coronavirus cases in the Acadiana region is 1,159 with 64 deaths reported.

Health Commissioner Judy Persichilli said this week that 123 long-term care facilities have been prohibited from admitting patients because they haven't demonstrated they can effectively segregate COVID-19-infected residents from those who aren't infected.

The Andover Subacute and Rehabilitation Center is the largest nursing home in the state with more than 500 beds, according to Gottheimer. Prior to the pandemic, Medicare gave the facility a one-star rating, or "much below average", based on staffing levels, patient care, and inspections.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reports as of Thursday, 197 people have died of coronavirus in Wisconsin.
