Coronavirus Takes A Terrible Toll On Ohio Valley Nursing Homes

Coronavirus Takes A Terrible Toll On Ohio Valley Nursing Homes

By BECCA SCHIMMEL & OHIO VALLEY RESOURCE 4 HOURS AGO

The coronavirus is taking a terrible toll on nursing homes in the Ohio Valley. Well over a thousand residents and staff at nursing homes and long-term care facilities in Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia have tested positive for coronavirus, and dozens have died from COVID-19.

Residents in these facilities are already more vulnerable, and in many cases, the facilities were running low on protective equipment even before the pandemic hit.

Figures supplied Tuesday by Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear showed 217 residents and 127 staff members had tested positive for coronavirus at 33 facilities around the state; 33 residents and one staff member have died.
