A VERY LARGE percentage of the people in those care homes are EXCEPTIONALLY brittle. In fact the MEDIAN life expectancy for someone who first goes into such a place is SIX MONTHS.

In fact I'm willing to bet that no more than 10% of the people who live in such a place could climb ONE flight of stairs. That is, they have no more than 3-4 METS of maximum capacity; an ordinary "carpet slug" sedentary American typically can manage 8 or thereabouts. (1 MET = your cardio-pulmonary capacity required to rest quietly.)

Essentially ANY acute disease that compromises your cardio-pulmonary system and infects someone in one of those places has a very high probability of killing them.
