Trump Announces $5B In Assistance To Nursing Homes To Help Combat COVID-19 Spikes

The AP (7/22, Alonso-Zaldivar) reports, “Fearing another grim wave of nursing home deaths as COVID-19 cases rebound, President Donald Trump on Wednesday announced his administration will provide $5 billion to help facilities counter the virus.” The move “follows Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s recent unveiling of a family caregiver plan that aims to greatly expand and subsidize alternatives to institutional care for frail older adults.” Both men “are competing for seniors’ votes against a backdrop of eroding political support for Trump among older Americans.”
