Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disproportionate effect on older Europeans living in nursing homes. Joan Costa-Font, Sergi Jimenez-Martin, and Analia Viola find evidence consistent with a ‘fatal underfunding hypothesis’, suggesting that the regional variation in nursing home fatalities during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain is associated with proxies of underfunding (such as understaffing, larger size nursing homes and occupancy rate).
