There is a suppression of the facts about the current spread of coronavirus in the United States. The spread of the virus within the U.S. Border Patrol is hidden in the statistics. The total numbers of those with the virus and dying from the virus in each prison and nursing home are hard to find, if they exist at all for the public.

The tragedies continue on the Navajo Nation.

One Navajo family burying their loved one said the Silvercreek Mortuary in Tse Bonito, New Mexico, was full of deceased. Their loved one was being kept outside in an unrefrigerated gurney, the family told Censored News. The mortuary is located at the boundary of the Navajo Nation near Window Rock.
