New Reports Say Number Of NY Nursing Home Deaths Much Higher Than Reported
By Flag and Cross, August 12, 2020:
A brand new report has hit the news cycle, and it’s not at all good news for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The report alleges that the number of folks who died at nursing homes of the coronavirus, which were mostly due to horrific policy decisions by Cuomo himself, are much higher than first reported.
Cuomo has taken a lot of heat for his mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic and for decisions that led to the deaths of thousands of at-risk individuals in nursing home facilities.
The left has been attempting to spin the situation and make Cuomo out to be some sort of hero, but nobody is buying that garbage.
Check out the details from The Daily Wire:
“New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount,” the Associated Press reported. “Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.”
According to the AP, on paper, the nursing home only reported a total of four deaths from the coronavirus out of its nearly 150-bed facility. However, the true number is 21 dead, most of whom were transported out of the facility and to hospitals before they died.
“That statistic that could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600,” the AP continued. “But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing a better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.”
