Andrew Cuomo hid nursing home COVID deaths to avoid Federal investigation

February 12, 2021

Despite New York Democrats doing their best to protect Andrew Cuomo by blocking a subpoena for nursing home death data related to his disastrous COVID-19 nursing home directive the truth is slowly getting out there. The request for this data was made after the New York Attorney General reported that Andrew Cuomo underreported the nursing home deaths by 50% and now it is getting even worse for the man who wants to be President in the future.

According to this story the underreporting of these deaths was not due to negligence or an oversight but was an intentional act by the Governor to avoid a Federal investigation. Here is more:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-NY) top aide admitted that her team withheld the number of deaths related to COVID-19 in New York’s nursing homes to shield the Cuomo government from federal investigation and political scrutiny.

The New York Post reported on Thursday that Melissa DeRosa, New York’s secretary to the governor, apologized to Democrat state legislators for “political” damage caused by the Cuomo government’s suppression of information related to nursing home COVID-19 deaths.

In a recorded call with state Democrat lawmakers, DeRosa said Cuomo’s team feared a federal investigation in the context of former President Donald Trump’s highlighting of coronavirus-related deaths in New York’s nursing homes. This fear motivated Cuomo’s government to suppress the statistics against requests for such information from the state’s government and citizens’ organizations.

When things went awry in New York and the death total began rising due to the poor direction of the Governor his first reaction was not to find out what went wrong and to correct it so more people did not die, but rather to cover it up because he had higher political aspirations and he did not want anything to get in the way.

    Steve, thanks for the first chuckle of the day. Cuomo will fear an investigation by the Feds? The Feds, now and into the foreseeable future an arm of the democrat party, don’t investigate their own. Don’t confuse them with the republicans who push their own off the cliff. Cuomo can unabashedly quote the words of the great Alfred E. Newman “ What me worry?”

    Thankfully, we still have people like you who are helping to get the truth out there. And you can be sure I’ll pass it along…particularly to those who thought he was handling the virus well (?) and better than Trump.

    He was in cahoots with the hospitals. They got their $77K. bonus for a Covid patient. If it is investigated which is questionable, that would be an equally big story. The reason he never sent them to the hospital ship…

      I heard about the bonuses hospitals were getting for COVID patients and inflating the numbers because of it. It should have been a big story but the media was more interested in making Trump look and they thought if the numbers were higher it would hurt him. In the end they were right and they hurt him but it came at the expense of the truth and now we are still living with the consequences. I hope this all comes out someday.
