According to CNN, Cuomo's administration "knowingly undercounted deaths among nursing home residents during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in the state".

State lawmakers have been calling for investigations, stripping Cuomo of his emergency powers and even his resignation after new details emerged this week about why certain nursing home data wasn't disclosed for months, despite requests from lawmakers and others.

"COVID did not get into the nursing homes by people coming from hospitals", Cuomo asserted. But do I understand the pressure everyone was under?

On Monday, Cuomo did not refer to Trump by name when he was talking about the "toxic political environment", but it was clear that's who he was talking about.

"The right to vote is one of the sacred pillars of our democracy, and as we continue to fight the war on COVID, we can't put democracy on hold", Governor Cuomo said.

"We should have done a better job of providing as much information as we could as quickly as we could", he said. One percent. NY is 34 in nursing home deaths as a percentage of total deaths.

Cuomo, in support of the idea that COVID-19 did not get into nursing homes becomes because of March 25 guidance, said that death rates remained the same after the directive.

Under fire over his management of the coronavirus' lethal path through New York's nursing homes, Gov. Andrew Cuomo insisted Monday the state didn't cover up deaths but acknowledged that officials should have moved faster to release some information sought by lawmakers, the public and the press.

The governor said that of 613 NY nursing homes, 365 received a person from a hospital.

First, a report late last month from Democratic state Attorney General Letitia James examined the administration's failure to tally nursing home residents' deaths at hospitals. Cuomo claimed that during the time his order was active, 98% of these nursing homes already had COVID-19 in their facility prior to admitting hospital patients.

"I get these are hard decisions, but otherwise people die, and these decisions should not be politicized".

"He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes", she said.

Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa said so on a call last week with Democratic state legislators.

He said that a "void' was created by own administration's failure to provide information in timely manner, allowing "conspiracy theories" and "disinformation" to fill the void and create a narrative". I take responsibility. We should have provided more information faster.

The Governor seems incapable of comprehending that it was his Administration at fault, and nobody else.
