A new report from the New York State Bar Association proves that Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s actions during the pandemic contributed to the needless deaths of thousands of senior citizens in nursing homes.
Fox News’ Janice Dean reports:
The 242-page document written by the NYSBA’s Task Force on Nursing Homes and Long-Term Care also takes Cuomo to task for not reversing the Department of Health’s order sooner, saying it remained in effect weeks longer than necessary:
“Although a determination of the number of additional nursing home deaths is beyond the capacity of the Task Force, there are credible reviews that suggest that the directive, for the approximately six weeks that it was in effect, did lead to some number of additional deaths,” the report states.
The essay also states that the state Department of Health report in 2020 that argued the admission of thousands of COVID-positive residents had no impact “cannot be the case, and has now been shown not to be the case.”
The report is just the latest indicator that Andrew Cuomo’s leadership during the pandemic led to the deaths of New York seniors after he put 9,000 COVID-19 patients in the elderly facilities.
