Wow. I hadn't heard anything about that, either. Although 84 sounds like a low number, when you have zero fatalities the upper bound of the 95% CI is still under 1%*, which is way better than the normal outcome in this population. Yes, if TPTB really cared about saving lives they would've surged in there, collected detailed data, and at a minimum set up rapid observational studies or RCTs to attempt to replicate the results, then pushed them out as recommendations if they worked.

If they really cared about saving lives.

*Edited to add: using the quick-and-easy normal approximation, the upper bound is under 1%. The exact CI has an upper bound of about 6%--however, in the >80 institutionalized population, that is still very low compared to the observed norm.
