The epicenter of the COVID-19 or “coronavirus” outbreak in the greater Seattle area is the Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington. National news has centered on this nursing facility, which has been the source of nearly one hundred cases from the virus, causing multiple deaths.
As media scrutiny has come to the Life Care Center, questions are being asked about what happened to cause so many people to become infected. The Associated Press has reported that the Life Care Center in Kirkland has become “ground zero” for coronavirus deaths in the United States. The Life Care Center in Kirkland has been fined previously over its handling of flu outbreaks at the facility.
