The Louisiana Department of Health is releasing new data that shows nursing homes account for nearly half of the total coronavirus deaths in East Baton Rouge Parish.

LDH reported yesterday that the largest outbreak of coronavirus cases in Louisiana came from the Old Jefferson Community Care Center in Baton Rouge.

According to research, all but one of their 83 residents caught the virus and 21 of them have died as of Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for OId Jefferson says they have been doing everything possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19 since the outbreak began and says they are committed to keeping their testing current as the coronavirus continues to spread.
