Andrew Cuomo is in hot water after a top ally blew the whistle on a sickening cover up
The Fake News Media lauded New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo for his handling of the coronavirus.
Cuomo published a book praising his own leadership and even won an Emmy Award for his performance during a televised press conference.
But now Andrew Cuomo is in hot water after a top ally blew the whistle on a sickening cover up.
New York’s Democrat Attorney General Letitia James produced a daming 76-page report that revealed Cuomo to be a liar and a bungler who was hiding the true severity of the outbreak of coronavirus in New York state nursing homes.
In a press release accompanying the report, the New York Attorney General’s office wrote that “investigating nursing homes throughout New York state based on allegations of patient neglect and other concerning conduct that may have jeopardized the health and safety of residents and employees.”
The findings were shocking.
James revealed that Cuomo’s administration hid the true number of nursing home deaths by undercounting fatalities from the coronavirus by 50 percent.
“In conclusion, this preliminary data for the 62 facilities and time periods noted above suggests that COVID-19 resident deaths associated with nursing homes in New York state appear to be undercounted by DOH by approximately 50 percent,” the report read.
Cuomo took heat for a March order mandating nursing homes take in coronavirus patients.
The disease is especially lethal in Americans over 75 and it spread like wildfire through long-term care facilities killing thousands of New Yorkers.
But Cuomo claimed he was doing a great job controlling the coronavirus outbreak in nursing homes and that New York States had one of the lowest long-term care facility fatality rates in the country.
“Look at the basic facts where New York is versus other states,” Cuomo claimed back in August. “You look at where New York is as a percentage of nursing home deaths, it’s all the way at the bottom of the list.”
That was all a lie.
The media knowingly went along with Cuomo’s falsehoods because he was a useful foil for Donald Trump.
But now that Trump is out of office the truth is coming out and Americans are now seeing the previously unknown horror of Cuomo’s coronavirus disaster.
