Newly sworn in Governor Kathy Hochul on Wednesday acknowledged nearly 12,000 more deaths in the state of New York that had been previously disclosed by Andrew Cuomo.
New York Governorpromised more government transparency on her first day in office, and by day’s end her administration had quietly acknowledged nearly 12,000 more deaths in the state from than had been publicized by her predecessor, Andrew Cuomo.
New York now reports nearly 55,400 people have died of COVID-19 in New York, based on death certificate data submitted to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up from about 43,400 that Cuomo had reported to the public as of Monday, his last day in office.
We reported more than a year ago that former Governor Cuomo instituted policies that ensured nursing homes millions in COVID funds and the resulting deaths of elderly New Yorkers. This was not shared by the mainstream media.
New Yorkers were finally able to share the stories of their elderly loved ones who died in New York due to Cuomo’s policies.
