Gov. Hochul apologizes to families of nursing home COVID victims in closed-door meeting

As predicted…the left are eating their own!

Gov. Kathy Hochul on Tuesday held a closed-door meeting with relatives of nursing home residents killed by COVID-19 — and apologized to them for the pain caused by her predecessor, Andrew Cuomo’s, handling of the crisis, The Post has learned.

The families, led by Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens), presented the governor with a list of demands, including elder-care reforms and that the state own up for its controversial directive believed to have increased the death toll among nursing home residents.

For the first time since we began our quest for accountability on behalf of our families that died from Covid in nursing homes last spring, we met today with @GovKathyHochul,” Dean wrote on Twitter. “It was a small step but an important one to get answers. It would not have happened without @rontkim.”

The group requested an announcement from the state that the Department of Health’s March 25, 2020 mandate that nursing homes admit coronavirus patients had “led to thousands of untimely and unnecessary deaths.”
