The coronavirus is disproportionately impacting nursing home residents. In a report issued on June 4, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which oversees most nursing homes in the United States, estimated that almost 32,000 residents have died of the virus, more than a quarter of all COVID-19 deaths in the country. It’s well-known that elderly individuals are at higher risk of contracting and succumbing to the virus, but this number is staggering. It speaks to a complete disregard for human life within a notable segment of the for-profit long-term care industry.

Nov. 25, 2019 – Los Angeles Daily Journal: New laws acknowledge bullying for what it is: a life-and-death matter
The beloved holiday movie “A Christmas Story” features a laugh-out-loud scene in which the film’s bespectacled hero is forced to confront a pair of terrifying bullies blocking his way home from school.
It’s an amusing moment, especially when viewed from the relative safety of adulthood and through the lens of a nostalgic comedy. But for children regularly experiencing this kind of torment as their presentday reality, bullying is, in fact, a matter of life and death.
Bullying and teen suicide are deeply intertwined. One study by researchers at Yale School of Medicine estimated that bullying victims are anywhere from two to nine times more likely to report suicidal thoughts than other children were. For adolescents, suicide is the second leading cause of death. “Bullying-suicide link explored in new study by researchers at Yale,” Yale News, July 16, 2008.
