Would anybody want to go into a nursing home now with the virus here?

Nursing homes cost a small fortune, not sure who would be paying for that.
You will till you're broke then Medicaid takes over. I'd be ok with paying an extra tax used strictly for nursing home care for the elderly so anybody who needed it got good care, not like some of the Hell holes we have now.

You have just described how the national health service [ducking the anti-socialist epithets being thrown at me right now, lol] works in many countries, for instance the UK. And no, of course the nationalized health service in no country is perfect as nothing is perfect on this planet; but it certainly allows at least some of the elderly/ disabled, etc. to stay in their own homes longer & less expensively than here in the US.
