Will the brave firefighters hold Cuomo accountable? Wuhan virus deaths in NY nursing homes were 50% higher than reported

That question is rhetorical, of course.

Rules (and accountability) for thee but not for me

Remember, last fall Gov. Cuomo won the 2020 International Emmy Founders Award in recognition of his daily Wuhan virus press briefings. This was because Cuomo effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure when it came to informing the public of the Wuhan virus in New York.

Turns out Cuomo’s failure was much bigger than reported.

From NY Post:

“Attorney General Letitia James has finally, and reluctantly, confirmed the ugly truth that Gov. Cuomo’s people have long strived to conceal but most New Yorkers suspected: The number of nursing-home residents who’ve died from COVID-19 is much higher than Cuomo’s administration claims — likely more than 50 percent higher.

James soft-pedals criticism of her political patron and his mad mandate that sent COVID-positive patients into the state’s most vulnerable population, but the facts she presents are damning enough. More, she notes the lack of evidence for Cuomo’s claim that nursing-home staff, not his edict, spread the deadly virus, killing thousands.

James’ damning 76-page report follows months of stonewalling by Team Cuomo. Lawmakers from both parties have demanded the true number of nursing-home-resident deaths; so has the Empire Center, via a Freedom of Information lawsuit. But Cuomo and Health Commissioner Howard Zucker refused to provide the info, with a series of absurd and contradictory excuses.

James got data directly from 62 nursing homes: 1,914 of their residents died from COVID, 56 percent more than the 1,229 reported by the state, which refuses to count those who died after being transferred to a hospital. If that undercount proves consistent throughout the state, New York’s nursing-home deaths total more than 13,000, where the state tallies just 8,711.”

Don’t hold your breath that ANYONE will be held accountable. The System always protects their own.
