Seventy veterans living in a care home in the US state of Massachusetts have died after contracting coronavirus, officials said.
The outbreak is the deadliest reported in a long-term care home in the US.
A nurse at the facility claimed understaffing had contributed to the spread as employees moved from one unit to another.
The US has more than one million confirmed cases of coronavirus – more than any other country.
Nursing homes across the US and in other parts of the world have been particularly badly hit by the pandemic.
