REPORT: Every resident of senior home presumed to have coronavirus
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
A massive outbreak of the coronavirus in a senior home in New Jersey is presumed to have infected nearly 100 residents.
St. Joseph’s Senior Home in Woodbridge, New Jersey, has confirmed that 24 of its elderly residents have tested positive for coronavirus. The facility predicts that all 94 of the seniors living in the building have been infected with COVID-19.
The article goes on to state the following:
John Hagerty, a spokesman for Woodbridge, reported that the first positive test for a resident came back on March 17, and at least one additional resident has tested positive every day since that first test was taken. He said the facility is running with the mindset that every resident has caught the virus.
While not every patient has been tested, and not all results have returned yet, officials said they had no choice but to assume the worst.
“This is the presumption,” Hagerty said. “That all have been exposed and would be positive.”
Several workers at St. Joseph’s, including a nun, also tested positive, leaving staffing shortages, forcing a move of patients and residents to another facility.
