    JimK has a point that any itentional misrepresentation of death at any kind of senior center would need be investigated and corrected on an individual institution basis and misrepresentation could play into insurance claims policies on a state to state basis. I do believe however that many deaths diagnosed as respiratory failure, pneumonia and the flu in November and December of 2019 and early 2020, may have in fact been covid19, as early on there was little knowledge and communication regarding the virus. The quality of supervision of these facilities by the individual states varies greatly and there is no federal level of supervision for those places that I know of.
