Betsy McCaughey: Cuomo nursing home scandal – Deaths likely closer to 10,000 and it gets worse


COVID-19 has already killed thousands of nursing home residents in New York. An estimated 10,000 or more, double what the state reports. It’s hard to know what’s worse, the dying or the lying.

Under criticism for forcing nursing homes to admit COVID-19 patients, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to shift the blame to President Trump. “Don’t criticize the state for following the president’s policy,” Cuomo said at his Saturday news conference. The governor points to a Trump administration statement issued on March 13.

Sorry, Governor, but you’re twisting what the statement said. 
The administration recommended nursing homes should admit patients even if they were coming from a hospital battling COVID-19, not that patients with COVID-19 themselves should be admitted.

To the contrary, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was emphatic about the dangers of allowing COVID-19 to invade a nursing home. On March 18, the CDC stated that “once COVID-19 has been introduced into a long term care facility, it has the potential to result in high attack rates among residents, staff members, and visitors.” The agency warned “it is critical that long-term care facilities implement active measures to prevent introduction of COVID-19.”

One week later, on March 25, Cuomo’s Health Department mandated that nursing homes accept COVID patients and barred homes from requiring COVID tests for admission. Facilities had to fly blind, not knowing which incoming patients endangered residents and staff. more

SNIP: And again, Cuomo tries covering his oily ass.

Cuomo on coronavirus models: ‘We all failed … they were all wrong’

Just The News: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who has over the last several months overseen the worst coronavirus outbreak in the United States, is acknowledging that earlier projections and predictions about the disease’s behavior have been “all wrong,” declaring himself “out of the guessing business” with respect to the ongoing pandemic. 

The Democratic governor’s admission Monday came as models that have driven the lockdowns – many of which incorrectly predicted sky-high hospitalization rates and overwhelmed healthcare systems – are raising concerns being possibly having overstated the danger of the pandemic. Those projections have in part led led to government policies that shuttered large parts of the U.S. economy and resulted in record unemployment. 

Cuomo has also declined to speculate on when the state might fully reopen.  more here

  1. Dying or lying…which is worse? Who is your master? The light of the truth or the great deceiver? There is no middle ground, it’s like being a little bit pregnant, you either live desiring,seeking and loving the truth or you don’t. Cuomo is either really, really stupid or evil. Stupid people accidentally do the right thing from time to time.

  2. And the usual pukes had the pierced nipple buffoon elevated to potential presidential status.
    The clown can’t run anything but his putrid mouth.

  3. Recall Cuomo the murderer. Death to Cuomo! I mean- force him to live in a nursing home

  4. ^^^ – force him to live in a nursing home… and put the Black guy who beat up the veteran in the same room with him! Give him a first hand taste of what democRAT totalitarian rule is really like!

  5. As long as voters keep voting for politicians and not actual leaders the dismal results will continue. When is the last time you heard a politician admit to a screw UP? Cuomo’s folly will follow him to his own grave and to hell.

  6. ……….. on Memorial Day hillry clinton publicly praised cuomos response and action that kept NY safe during the pandemic.
    I can think of nothing to add

  7. Leftist Population Control 101. Due to all his extra credit projects, Cuomo got an A+ and a Deathtime Achievement Award.

    No, not really sarc at all.

  8. Cuomo must have gotten an honorary degree from the Jack Kevorkian school of health…..

    ‘Guido, the hitman’ Cuomo has blood on his hands and no amount of lying or dissembling will change that. The more he says at this point the deeper the hole he is digging for himself.

    As far as his budget deficits go, NY has had a loss of over 1/2 a million people in its population in the last few years. Even so, there have been NO CUTBACKS on the number of state employees the vast majority of them being in processing or revenue positions which is entirely population dependent.

    While I hope a valid candidate comes up to oppose the killer in chief of NY in the next election cycle, I am also a realist and understand that the drones in NYC will re-elect this bozo regardless. For clarification I live in flyover NY way above the Tappan Zee Bridge.

  9. Wow, never thought we’d long for the good old days of Dr. Kevorkian, who only helped you snuff yourself when YOU wanted to do it.

  10. It is not just isolated Democrats. This is systemic throughout the Democrat Party.

    Obamacare may be weakened, but its chief designer, Ezekiel Emanuel, still wants to decide whether your life is worth living.

    Progressivism is al about increasing innocent human suffering, misery and death. I keep posting it and validation is coming in daily. This has been my mantra for well over a decade. There has been a lot of push back until the last couple months and now I am even getting affirmation from people who disagree with me politically that my message is resonating.

  11. “Cuomo” and “leader” should not be used in the same sentence.
    This son of a bitch couldn’t lead a cannoli out of a paper bag.
