Here are the deaths per nursing home residents for the Upper Midwestern states:
North Dakota: 0.260
South Dakota: 0.292
Iowa, in particular, goes from being a worse-than-average state in per capita deaths to an above-average state in deaths per nursing home resident. Otherwise, however, the numbers are more or less interchangeable.
Florida is an interesting case. It has a lot of old people, the second highest rate in the country. But its per capita nursing home population is not commensurately large. Here are the numbers for Florida and some other states, more or less randomly selected:
New York: 0.452
Utah and Washington are also interesting cases. They both look like great performers when deaths per capita are measured, but they have relatively few nursing home residents. On these numbers, their performance is closer to average.
Number of deaths for leading causes of death:
Heart disease: 655,381
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 167,127
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 159,486
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 147,810
Alzheimer’s disease: 122,019
Influenza and Pneumonia: 59,120
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 51,386
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 48,344

I don't need to read stats. COVID is not an issue. I know because I saw Drew Brees lick his fingers (multiple times) between every play on Sunday. Even in non-pandemic days, that's not very healthy.
Once again, we've all been played by the powers that be.
