NY Gov. Cuomo Caught Lying About Nursing Home COVID Deaths

New York's Democrat Governor, Andrew Cuomo, has been caught keeping the real number of nursing home COVID-19 deaths quiet because it is far higher than he had claimed.

Cuomo, it appears, has killed thousands more elderly people with his failed COVID policies than he is letting on. But Cuomo is keeping the real number a secret.

Why is the media running cover for America's worst COVID-19 governor?

I think you can answer that.

Per the Associated Press:

New York's coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. 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.

That statistic could add thousands to the state's official care home death toll of just over 6,600. 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 better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.

"That's a problem, bro," state Sen. Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat, told New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker during a legislative hearing on nursing homes earlier this month. "It seems, sir, that in this case you are choosing to define it differently so that you can look better."

Meanwhile, the media keeps praising New York and Cuomo as a COVID success story even though the state is at the bottom of ALL the worst coronavirus metrics.

The state has had more deaths and more cases (even per capita) than every other state in the union.

For instance, in July, Rich Lowery noted that "In per capita terms, New York has had 1,668 deaths per million. In contrast, Arizona has had 308, Florida 199, California 179 and Texas 114."

New York has been the worst state in America. NOT the best. The media is lying right to your face, America.
