Covid Is Clobbering America’s Farm Workers

September 12, Bloomberg, Adam Minter – Gloria Hill is calling it quits. Hill, a long-time employee of Manhattan Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Hinds County, said she is exhausted from the rising number of coronavirus infections and deaths at the nursing home, the most in the state. In just over a month, the state Department of Health reported 144 staff and residents at the 180-bed facility were infected with the virus. Of those, 27 residents have died. The 60-year-old Hill said going to work was like entering a war zone. She decided to retire in late July when infections at the center were close to reaching their peak.
