COVID Crusader Janice Dean Puts Michigan on Notice over Nursing-Home Massacre

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USAAfter exposing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for implementing a policy that killed nursing home residents, Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean has shifted her attention to Michigan, where Gov. Gretchen Whitmer imposed the same deadly plan.

Both Cuomo and Whitmer signed orders that forced nursing homes and long-term care facilities to admit residents into their facilities who had tested positive for COVID-19.

The two governors imposed some of the most restrictive lockdowns in the nation, yet their nursing home policies targeted the population most vulnerable to the illness.

Dean toured New York last year to raise awareness about the deadly policies enacted by Cuomo, who resigned last August, and NYS Health Commissioner Howard Zucker, who resigned last September, WRGB reported. Dean said Zucker should go to prison.

Now Dean wants to hold Michigan’s leaders accountable, too.

Michigan state Rep. Steven Johnson, a Republican, said Whitmer signed the 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.

The auditor general found 8,061 COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes, or 2,386 more than Whitmer’s health department claims to have found, MLive reported.

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Director Elizabeth Hertel said the state’s auditor general did not use the CDC‘s definition of a COVID-19 death and thus overcounted the deaths.

“Residents not expected to return to the long-term care facility are excluded from the count,” Hertel said. “MDHHS has always required long-term care COVID-19 deaths be reported consistent with this standard set by the federal government.”

The auditor general apparently included in the tally nursing home residents who died while in the hospital or elsewhere.
