Thanks to Phil Kerpen on Twitter for these charts showing LTC deaths in each state. (Twitter Link) I think comparability is somewhat limited due to different definitions of who is a long-term care resident, and then there is New York, which intentionally and misleading didn’t call it an LTC death if the resident didn’t die in the residence. But it is clear that there are a lot of LTC deaths everywhere, likely even more than reported and that Minnesota is well above average, as we like to be, even in not-s0-good categories. The other factor I keep pointing out is the presence of advance directives limiting care. The percent of those vary significantly by state, and we really need that data to assess who truly died of CV-19 against their wishes and who died because they didn’t want care.
