Covid : The massacres in New York and Italy due to policy mistake ( UK also has same policy )

Is this just sheer incompetence or a deliberate policy to cull off the old and weaker members of our society ? ( ie the ones that are non-productive and cost money to the state )

You decide - same policy enacted in UK , New York and Italy :


Covid-19 patients in Italy's virus epicentre of Lombardy were transferred to nursing homes by an official resolution with catastrophic consequences.

In the early days of March, when northern Italy faced a severe health crisis from the coronavirus outbreak, the scarcity of available hospital beds brought the public health system to its knees.

The regional resolution offering150 euros ($163) to nursing homes for accepting Covid-19 patients to ease the burden on hospitals, contributed to the uncontrolled spread of the virus among health workers and elderly guests, turning these institutions into virus hotbeds. ... ents-35575

Recent New York State order, which states:“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the Nursing Home solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. Nursing Homes are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.

In New York State the law required officials to bring COVID-19 patients back to nursing homes.

Official New York policy encouraged infectious COVID-19 patients to be sent back to nursing homes

Reminder: about half of COVID-19 deaths have been nursing home patients


UK - Covid-19 Our Action Plan for Adult Social Care published by the Department of Health and Social Care ( attached ) page 4 paragraph 2 :

This in turn will also help the NHS to maximise its capacity to treat those most acutely affected by COVID-19, by preventing admissions and supporting discharge from hospital back to people’s homes and other care settings with support from social care and the NHS.
