COVID-19 IN MIAMI - RECENT NEWS
COVID-19 AND NURSING HOMES.
The coronavirus and nursing homes combine to raise added concerns over the well-being of our elderly loved-ones. As COVID-19 spreads throughout Florida, nursing homes across Miami-Dade and Broward are on high alert; at least they should be. Coronavirus cases in nursing homes, as well as in any private or public facility housing individuals requiring care or special attention, may soon be running rampant among their populations. Preventive measures such as masks, social distancing, and hand sanitation seem to be the best means for halting the spread of the coronavirus and helps to not become infected. Sadly, preventive measures may come a bit late & nursing home residents & rehabilitation patients may be exposed negligently to COVID-19. If this occurs, the victim may suffer pain, suffering, losses or even wrongful death.
NURSING HOMES AND INJURIES
The elderly are exposed to risks of accidents ranging from bedbugs to bedsores. Some common injuries may be linked to negligence on behalf of nursing home staff workers or operators.
Nursing Home Personal Injuries & Accidents may include:
-Slip & Falls
-Physical or Mental Abuse

COVID-19 BREAKOUT IN MIAMI NURSING HOMES.
The Perazzo Law Firm reports on the growing concern for elderly loved-ones residing in nursing homes in Miami-Dade.
Just recently, a Miami Springs living facility raised awareness on the importance of testing to uncover & prevent severe outbreaks of the coronavirus among nursing homes residents, operators, and staff members such as nurses, doctors, and maintenance personnel. The COVID-19 alarm sounded within the 269-room nursing & long-term care facility when over 100 people tested positive with some possible coronavirus-related deaths according to Florida Department of Health Officials.
As COVID-19 cases in nursing homes rise, so do concerns about how to move forward with prevention & early detection measures for staff & nursing home residents. Also, there is a need to set a protocol with how to treat elderly residents that test positive for the coronavirus. Some elderly nursing home residents may have limited mobility or require special attention to meet special needs. At the Miami Spring's facility, 72 residents tested positive with 22 taken to a healthcare center for coronavirus treatment. The number one complaint from residents & loved-ones is the lack of information about the general condition of the nursing home population both as a whole & individually in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

BUSINESS INTERRUPTION COVERAGE AND INSURANCE CLAIMS.
The spread and consequences of the COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus, has businesses big and small on tenterhooks. With a nationwide quarantine in full effect, streets will be barren, shops closed, and business owners at home the economy will be dealt a devastating blow as revenue, profits, and stock are expected to crumble. Considering this very real scenario, how are independent workers and businesses expected to survive quarantine and still be expected to cover overheads such as wages and taxes? In Florida, businesses and the general population are no strangers to taking time off the streets as hurricanes have halted commercial activity in the past. However, with the uncertainty of how long business will be interrupted because of the coronavirus quarantine, financial losses will spread across every business area to include suppliers, distributors, manufacturers, merchants, and many more public and private sector workers. Though business and corporate employees will still receive their paychecks, business owners may not be able to cope with long-term economic losses from business disruptions.

CHURCH PEDDLES BLEACH AS COVID-19 CURE.
A federal court has recently ordered a religious organization to stop selling a drinkable bleach which it claims allegedly cures COVID-19 and other illnesses.
Regardless of the court ruling, the leader of the Genesis II Church of Health & Healing defied the issued restraining order in an email to a U.S. District Judge in late April, stating that the law has no jurisdiction in their church or their affairs.
In response to the church leaders defiance, a preliminary injunction has been issued aimed at banning the distribution of MMS, also known as Miracle Mineral Solution, which the church claims can cure the coronavirus.
However, the FDA warns that the church & its miracle drink lacks scientific proof and can be fatally dangerous to those that consume it since it contains chlorine dioxide, which is used to disinfect surfaces & treat water. The FDA also reports cases in which MMS consumers have developed serious illnesses such as liver failure. Regardless, the Genesis II Church claims that its miracle drink is safe for everyone including pregnant women, children & pets.
A court hearing is set for 5/11 to determine if the Genesis II Church will be held in contempt & face criminal charges.

TEMPERS FLARE OVER MASK RULE IN MIAMI.
Outside a Publix outlet in Miami Beach, a would-be shopper burst into an uncontrollable rage when denied entry due to failure to comply with the mask rule upon entering the shop. Despite city rules requiring the use of a mask to help prevent the spread, the enraged shopper grew violent as Publix staff politely explained entry was not allowed without a mask.
Despite over 70,000 fatalities in the USA related to the COVID-19 pandemic, a vast number of Miami residents are eager to defy the authorities when it comes to wearing facial coverings or masks in public spaces. In fact, law enforcement agents have had to deal with aggression by those denying to use masks, claiming it violates their civil rights to freedom. Meanwhile, Publix employees, as well as many other company employees serving the public and providing essential needs, have been on the receiving end of aggression and discontent by those Miami residents claiming that the coronavirus pandemic is fake and a compare it to an act of terrorism.
Several dozens of people protested in Miami-Dade urging city official to open up beaches, bars, restaurants, and schools so that the economy gets back on track as soon as possible. Meanwhile, hundreds continue to die overnight as the coronavirus pandemic fails to show signs of letting up.

MIAMI, FLORIDA : The massive spread of the coronavirus and the effects on modern life will soon take a futuristic twist as people will look more like space travelers than common Earth folk.

Miami, as well as most of Florida, has been under lock-down for over a month as workers and businesses look to get back to work as soon as possible. According to the mayor of Miami-Dade, Carlos Gimenez, plans for the gradual reopening of some businesses should be ready by next week. However, business operators in the food and leisure sector will be required to go beyond COVID-19 infection safety like hand sanitizer and face masks.
