"Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus nursing home policy proves tragic" Goodwin -
"The letter was heartbreaking as it recounted the death of an 88-year-old woman in a New York nursing home. But it was also angry and accurate about a strange New York policy that is fatally wrongheaded.
“I am wondering who will hold Gov. Cuomo accountable for the deaths of so many older people due to his reckless decision to place covid19 patients in nursing and rehabilitation homes,” the letter began. “I am writing as a daughter who lost her beautiful 88 year old mother who was receiving physical therapy at one such facility.”
The writer, Arlene Mullin, went on to recount examples of the governor promising to protect the elderly because of their known vulnerability. She noted that he named his stay-at-home order after his own mother, Matilda Cuomo, and talked several times about protecting her.
“My mother is not expendable and your mother is not expendable and our brothers and sisters are not expendable,” Cuomo said a month ago." Goodwin
Pilgrims – it appears that they really WERE expendable.
Roberto De Niro, he of the public "potty mouth" diatribes against Trumpy, is organizing a Horrywood ("1941" reference) production and is seeking to play Andrew Cuomo in a drama about the coronavirus plague. Presumably Cuomo will be the heroic and effective Italian American protagonist destined to be POTUS one day. Well, good! Let it be! Please God, let it be!
"Cuomo didn’t know coronavirus patients are being sent back to nursing homes" – NY Post
"New York’s health commissioner on Monday defended a directive that requires nursing homes to readmit residents who’ve tested positive for the coronavirus — as Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed he didn’t know the policy was in place.
Cuomo was asked about the state’s policy on admitting or readmitting to nursing homes people who’d tested positive for COVID-19.
“That’s a good question, I don’t know,” the governor said.
Cuomo’s startling admission came days after the state revealed last week that at least 3,316 people in nursing homes and adult care facilities had died of coronavirus at their residences or in hospitals across the state." NY Post
Actually, pilgrims, the body count on "non-expendables" in NY City area infection centers (nursing homes) is at 5,000 thus far. This massacre of the "non-expendables" occurred while federally provided temporary hospital facilities were very under used. pl
