AUBURN, New York (PNN) - January 10, 2021 - Things seem to be working backwards at The Commons on St. Anthony nursing home in Auburn, New York. Vaccinating people is supposed to reduce or end coronavirus deaths. But at The Commons such deaths are reported to have occurred only after residents began receiving coronavirus vaccinations.
Until December 29 there had been no coronavirus deaths at The Commons. Seven days after the nursing home began administering coronavirus vaccinations, on December 29, deaths of residents began occurring at The Commons. So far, 80% of their residents have been vaccinated.
Over a period of less than two weeks since December 29, 24 coronavirus-infected residents at the 300-bed nursing home have died.
