WSJ: Cuomo advisers altered report on nursing-home deaths

A bombshell report revealed by Wall Street journal on Thursday shows that top advisers to New York Governor Cuomo influenced state health officials to remove data from a report that showed coronavirus-related nursing-home deaths in the state had exceeded numbers previously admitted by Cuomo’s administration.

WSJ report that New York officials now place the nursing-home and long-term-care facility death toll in New York at more than 15,000. That number includes deaths since March 2020 of residents confirmed to have contracted the coronavirus or presumed to have contracted it.

“This is criminal,” reacted in a tweet Democratic lawmaker Ron Kim. “The Gov’s top advisors pushed state health officials to strip a public report of the data showing more nursing home deaths. The changes Cuomo’s aides made to the report reveal that they had the fuller accounting of NH deaths as early as the summer of 2020.”

Ron Kim is the New York Assemblyman who accused Andrew Cuomo of threatening him for speaking out against the governor’s handling of the state’s nursing homes.
