VICTORIA, Texas –  A new study from Brown University finds COVID-19 is spreading asymptomatically in nursing homes.

Their findings analyzed over 5,000 cases from 20 U.S. states. The cases were described as:

  • 40% asymptomatic
  • 20% pre-symptomatic
  • 40% showed symptoms

Scientists say there should be universal testing in these facilities to identify and isolate cases.

Some experts are warning the next 6-12 weeks might be the darkest of the entire COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to this finding, the federal government has made a deal with CVS and Walgreens pharmacies to help distribute the coronavirus vaccine.

These pharmacies plan to distribute the approved vaccine to long-term care facilities and nursing homes.
