Elderly Care Facilities: Lessons from Europe
We now know that COVID-19
becomes life-threatening for people with comorbidities. Residents of
nursing homes are particularly vulnerable. In advanced democracies, many
contracted the disease in nursing homes. In Italy, Spain and the US, all of
which recorded staggering numbers of COVID-19 deaths, nursing homes were the
source of infection. In contrast, Germany has succeeded in containing the virus
and saved lives.
This panel invites experts from
Germany, Italy and Spain. By comparing experiences of the three major
European countries, we draw lessons for the United States and beyond.
