Via American Action News:

A shocking new report issued by the New York Attorney General is now accusing Governor Cuomo of purposely undercounting nursing home coronavirus deaths, by as much as 50 percent.

The report indicates that how the misreporting was done was by not counting the deaths of patients that were transferred to the hospital from nursing homes.

As The New York Times reports:

The count of deaths in state nursing homes has been a source of controversy for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and state Health Department officials, who have been sensitive to any suggestion that they played any role in the number of nursing home deaths, which the state put at more than 8,500.

They have also been accused of obscuring a more accurate estimate of nursing home deaths, because the state only counted deaths at the actual facilities, rather than including deaths of residents who were transferred to a hospital and died there…

In one instance, an unnamed facility reported 11 confirmed and presumed deaths to the Health Department as happening on site through early August. The attorney general’s survey of that same facility, however, found 40 deaths, including 27 at the home and 13 in hospitals.

“Preliminary data obtained by O.A.G. suggests that many nursing home residents died from Covid-19 in hospitals after being transferred from their nursing homes, which is not reflected in D.O.H.’s published total nursing home death data,” a summary of the report’s findings reads.

Cuomo has consistently come under fire for his decision in March of 2020 to allow Covid infected individuals to be transferred and house at nursing homes in spite of the near-certainty that these individuals would spread the disease to extremely high-risk populations.

In spite of this, in the past Cuomo repeatedly attempted to blame then-President Trump for Coronavirus deaths:

Instead of blaming Trump for everything that goes wrong in this country…the Dems need to look at themselves for allowing the China government to become powerful And bold enough, to deliver a deadly virus to this country without any punishment from us…We should be ending all trade with China …instead, Biden bends over backwards for them because he gets paid off…
