Coronavirus - Andrew Cuomo and nursing homes deaths

Last year tyrannical Dem. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued as executive order forcing nursing homes to admit people known to have been infected by the coronavirus. The following stories show the consequences. His action caused far more people to become infected and die as a result.

Morning Dispatch: Cuomo Under Fire for Undercounting Nursing Home Deaths

New York Post: COVID-19 deaths in NY nursing homes were 50 percent higher than claimed

Update Jan. 30: Cuomo won't apologize (link).

"Attorney General Letitia James found that [Cuomo's] administration had drastically undercounted nursing-home deaths."

"Residents who died of COVID-19 in the facilities themselves were listed as nursing home deaths, while residents who died after being transported to a hospital were not included in that tally."

Cuomo added, “If you look at New York State, we have a lower percentage of deaths in nursing homes than other states. A third of all deaths in this nation are from nursing homes. New York State, we’re…about 28 percent, but we’re below the national average in number of deaths in nursing homes. But who cares — 33, 28, died in a hospital, died in a nursing home — they died.”

If 28%*1.5 = 42%, which is higher than other, maybe all, states.
