Default Cuomo Aides Rewrote Nursing Home Report to Hide Higher Death Toll

I guess his political career is over. The left will probably try to put someone in who is even more loony leftist than he is.

Top aides to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo were alarmed: A report written by state health officials had just landed, and it included a count of how many nursing home residents in New York had died in the pandemic.

The number — more than 9,000 by that point in June — was not public, and the governor’s most senior aides wanted to keep it that way. They rewrote the report to take it out, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The New York Times.


snip....



After the state attorney general revealed earlier this year that thousands of deaths of nursing home residents had been undercounted, Mr. Cuomo finally released the complete data, saying he had withheld it out of concern that the Trump administration might pursue a politically motivated inquiry into the state’s handling of the outbreak in nursing homes.

But Mr. Cuomo and his aides actually began concealing the numbers months earlier, as his aides were battling their own top health officials, and well before requests for data arrived from federal authorities, according to documents and interviews with six people with direct knowledge of the discussions, who requested anonymity to describe the closed-door debates.

So not only was his administration lying, but their reasoning for lying was a lie, too...

his career may be over from allegations of sexual harassment combined with mis posting numbers but amount of deaths were not changed.
Where they died was changed.
nursing homes can lose licensing over statistics and he made a bad decision about reporting. if they were in the nursing home and went to the hospt to die it's said he should have put in the "deaths in nsng home" column.
