The Hill (9/16, Moreno) reports that more people than average “are dying from dementia this year as seniors battle the coronavirus pandemic, according to an analysis of federal data by The Washington Post.” Patients are “dying from dementia at higher rates because of isolation measures in place amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Post found.” People who are “over 65 were encouraged by health officials early on to isolate because of their vulnerability against the virus.”     The Washington Post (9/16, Wan) reports, “Overlooked amid America’s war against the coronavirus is this reality: People with dementia are dying not just from the virus but from the very strategy of isolation that’s supposed to protect them.” In recent months, physicians “have reported increased falls, pulmonary infections, depression and sudden frailty in patients who had been stable for years.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
