But Cuomo’s behavior throughout the coronavirus pandemic should remain front and center as the governor disappears in our rearview mirror. He did egregious things to New Yorkers while the liberal media treated him like a conquering king.
It cannot be forgotten.
Here is a list of some of the most outrageous things the governor did while in office:
ザ・ 2020 Nursing Home Order
In March of 2020, we knew very little about COVID-19. The two things we knew for certain were that the elderly were most susceptible to the virus and that COVID spread most in crowded areas, which is why we were told to lock down in our homes.
That’s why even 17 months later the governor’s directive of March 25, 2020 makes so little sense. The underlined section of the document read “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”
COVID-19 ravaged nursing homes because of this directive. より多い 15,000 people died in nursing homes in New York State.
“彼ら [the nursing homes] don’t have a right to object. That is the rule and that is the regulation, and they have to comply with that. If they can’t do it, we’ll put them in a facility that can do it.”
同時に, the Cuomo administration introduced a unique way of counting nursing home deaths—not being done by other states—so as to obscure the impact of the deadly directive. Nursing home deaths were only counted if the death occurred inside the nursing home. If the patient who contracted COVID in a nursing home wound up dying in the hospital or en route to the hospital, the death was not counted as a “nursing home” 死.
