Grim Florida Records Recount Lonely Deaths at Home

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: New York Times

A 71-year-old woman with nausea who was sent home from the emergency room, even though a doctor wanted to admit her. A 63-year-old nurse who was self-isolating while she waited for results from her coronavirus test. A 77-year-old man who was prescribed antibiotics by a doctor in another state for his fever and dry cough.
All were found unresponsive at home — the nurse on the sofa, where she was found by her husband — their lives claimed by Covid-19 before they ever had a chance to check into the hospital.

The New York Times and other news outlets obtained the descriptions of the deaths — the first such statewide data from anywhere in the country — through a public records request. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which oversees the state Medical Examiners Commission, redacted the 203 pages to keep the descriptions and probable causes of death private.
Florida has some of the strongest laws in the nation protecting the public’s right to view government records. Complete information from medical examiners on deaths has never before been kept secret. But the administration of Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, has not been eager to release some coronavirus records. The state also initially refused to release information on nursing homes where outbreaks occurred.

3. As long as all these "excess" deaths don't influence "his" numbers before November.

That's all that counts in his little pea-brain.

But, apparently there's a lot of very powerful/rich people in the US and the world that want the moron and his inept hordes re-installed. Why's that?

My guess: the dissolution of the USofA and its almost-democratic government.

Letting people die alone rather than dare be honest about those dying of Covid.

I don't even know how to describe how I feel anymore. My rage/grief is beyond description.
