Thirteen senior residents and a staff person died of COVID at posh Silverado Beverly nursing home (151 beds) in L.A.’s Melrose District in 2020.
Representatives from Save Our Seniors Network, David Monkawa and Francine Imai, at the Reagan State Building on Feb. 11, urging an investigation into Kei-Ai L.A. COVID deaths during a healthcare rally for a single-payer Medicare-for-all bill, AB 1690.
“We applaud District Attorney (George) Gascon, who is charging managers of the home with ‘felony elderly endangerment’ resulting from gross violations of health and safety regulations,” stated David Monkawa, co-chair of Save Our Seniors Network. “However, Save Our Seniors Network and members of the Japanese and Japanese American community are outraged that 115 seniors died in approximately the same period, at Kei-Ai Los Angeles (300 beds), yet not even an investigation has been launched.”
