Seattle, March 26 (RHC)-- In the U.S. state of Washington, officials are inspecting infection controls at nursing homes statewide after finding the Life Care Center of Kirkland failed to identify and protect sick residents, failed to alert health officials about an outbreak of respiratory illness and had no backup plan after the center’s primary doctor fell ill from COVID-19.
The outbreak at the long-term care center killed at least 37 people.
New Jersey, which is second to New York among known coronavirus cases in the U.S., reported its biggest single-day jump in confirmed cases, with 3,700, as New Jersey’s death toll reached 44.
