Wa Examiner – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there is no need for an independent investigation into his policy on nursing homes that critics say led to thousands of deaths during the coronavirus pandemic.
Cuomo, a Democrat, told reporters during a teleconference on Monday that Democrats and Republicans will never agree on the examination of his now-reversed March 25 directive that prohibited nursing homes from turning away recovering coronavirus patients.
“There is no such thing as a person who is trusted by all Democrats and Republicans. That person doesn’t exist. The Department of Health — those are just numbers. They report our numbers. You can see what you want in the numbers, but the numbers are the numbers. You can politically spin numbers, but those numbers are numbers,” Cuomo said. more
