Coronavirus Pandemic - China's One child policy - EVV

My mother's family friends care for me in their home and after many years of living here, I feel it is my home too.  I feel sorry for all those in nursing homes right now with the Coronavirus running rampant in the US.  I feel very fearful that EVV will land me in a home with a Pandemic lurking some day.  This giving family can only give so much.  Just like the newborn babies in China that ended up on the government's steps due to the "one child policy", I may end up in the government's lap in more expensive nursing home care due to EVV (I will probably be praying for the next Pandemic to take me out of my misery by then).
