Report: Whitmer Undercounted Nursing Home COVID Deaths

Report: Whitmer Undercounted Nursing Home COVID Deaths

January 18, 2022

Tyrannical Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D-MI) administration undercounted coronavirus deaths inside the state’s long-term care facilities by approximately 30 percent, according to a state auditor’s general report to be released Monday.

Michigan state Rep. Steven Johnson (R) explained to Fox News recently that Whitmer is “well known” for her executive order “to place COVID-positive patients into nursing homes”:

“And when we were looking into this to see just how deadly that policy was, the nursing home death numbers we received from the department weren’t including everything,” Johnson said, confirming the number in the report was 30%. Johnson said there are “some serious questions that have to be asked” about the alleged undercounting and that “it does appear the people of Michigan were misled as to just how many nursing home deaths there were” due to Whitmer’s policies.

“Seeing that it’s actually 30% higher is quite significant — we’re talking about thousands of lives that were not initially included in the department’s count,” Johnson noted.

The Michigan House Oversight Committee chairman added that the committee “plans to hold hearings on this in the near future.”

“Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania enacted controversial policies to placing coronavirus-infected patients into nursing homes to recuperate, effectively spreading the disease among the most susceptible population,” the Fox News article reads. Indeed, the number of undercounted deaths could be over 40 percent.
