'Blood on his hands' — Andrew Cuomo admits forcing COVID-19 patients into nursing homes, refuses to take blame
Monica Showalter

New York's Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his political allies were quick to declare that President Trump had "blood on his hands" based on the state's failure to prepare supplies for the coronavirus pandemic.

It now comes to light that the bloody hands were Cuomo's.

It's not just that the subways were continuously running packed, or New York City's schools took a long time to shut, or city officials were busy going to the gym, if not encouraging people to attend those Chinatown parades, the better to Get Trump.

The worst of it was from the death toll coming out of New York City's nursing homes, where a disproportionate percent of New York's humongous death toll occurred. Not only were the nursing homes with the city's most vulnerable residents not so much as basically protected, but they were positively seeded with COVID-19 patients, rolling in from the hospitals, forced into the homes no matter how much the homes objected, because "discrimination." Nursing homes weren't even allowed to ask incoming patients if they were coming back "stabilized" from the coronavirus units. This, despite President Trump having sent a whole hospital ship to take care of such outbound COVID-19 patients, which stood largely empty. Instead of sending them there, the nursing homes were positively forced to take the COVID-19 patients while the hospitals, knowing what was going to happen, sent along extra body bags with the arriving COVID-19 patients to prepare for the inevitable.

Cuomo, the one who spoke of Trump's hands being bloodied, sleazily denied any knowledge of this horrible, lethal decision and even argued that protecting nursing homes was "not our job." He mendaciously told critics elsewhere that his forcings were consistent with CDC guidelines. He threatened nursing homes with de-certification if they "couldn't protect" the resident patients being shoved in with newly arriving COVID-19 patients. His creepy spokesman called the outcry nothing but the nursing homes' bid to deflect blame from "their own failures." He continually dodged blame for the outrageous decision, which left more than 5,000 nursing home patients dead.

And for good measure, he threw in that the whole problem was a matter of greedy capitalist nursing home seeking to get that extra paying patient, as if losing a whole lot of other paying patients — to death — had never figured in their calculations as if that were the case.

It was complete garbage. Now the smoking-gun documents are out, showing that yes, it was Cuomo who ordered the COVID-19 patients into the nursing homes because political correctness.

Here is the death sentence signed by the Lord High Executioner. Remember the “death panels” ridiculed by the clowns at CNN et al? This is a little preview of “national health” run by crooked Democrats...

Viewed from abroad, New York's COVID-19 response looks appalling
Rory C. Flemmer

Does New York know that its coronavirus response is being watched all over the world?

Maybe that ought to be worth something, given its phenomenal casualty rate and its seeming obliviousness to the official decisions that caused so many of its failures.

Here in New Zealand, we don't even have a subway, so we kept the buses running for the important workers. We ran lots of buses so that they wouldn't be crowded and we could keep strict social distancing. And we disinfected these buses regularly. Like New Yorkers, we do have old folks at home, and we rather like them, so we locked them down and arranged careful deliveries of supplies to them, plus tele-appointments.

And we made good preparations for the crisis — we didn't think it was our place to ask The Donald for help. So one thing led to another, and we had a death rate of four persons per million (this despite being an important travel stop from much of Asia until recently) — and with very, very few new cases these days.

In New York, on the other hand, they do have a subway and are very sophisticated. They cut the number of cars running so they would stay nice and crowded, and they stopped all subway policing — because that is so unwoke! That enabled the homeless to live in the subway cars and be transported all over the city. What a sophisticated plan in the time of COVID! These New York governing officials such as Mayor Bill de Blasio weren't simple yahoos like the Japanese, South Koreans, or Taiwanese, who disinfected their transport; no, they were very sophisticated and let her roll for nine weeks. In a New York kind of way, with a New York kind of smell. They must be so proud of themselves.

And then, in a burst of egalitarianism, those callous sophisticates and Gov. Andrew Cuomo insisted that COVID patients be housed in nursing homes alongside uninfected elderly residents in frail health. Why not? The nursing homes are run for profit, and it is very sophisticated and wholesome to stick it to capitalists. Cuomo even blamed the nursing homes as greedy capitalists when things didn't turn out well....

Controversial Decisions by Governors in NY, NJ, and PA Criticized as Factors in High Level of COVID-19 Nursing Home Deaths
Michael Patrick Leahy
13 May 2020

The governors of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania are under fire for controversial nursing home policy decisions that critics say fueled coronavirus deaths in those facilities.

On March 25, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) ordered nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for COVID-19, as the New York Post reported:

An executive at the unnamed Queens nursing home says that the facility was coronavirus-free until Gov. Andrew Cuomo forced facilities in the state to accept coronavirus patients on March 25.

In Pennsylvania, the Bucks County Courier Times reported:

On March 29, as Pennsylvania, New York and other states began ordering nursing homes to admit medically stable residents infected with the coronavirus, national trade groups warned it could unnecessarily cost more lives.

The health directives put frail and older adults who reside in nursing homes at risk and would result in more people going to the hospital and more deaths, the American Health Care Association and affiliates said at the time.

A month later, it appears government officials should have heeded the dire call to pursue different pandemic emergency plans.

Then on April 6, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy followed Cuomo's lead and ordered New Jersey nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for COVID-19, as reported:

New Jersey nursing homes cannot bar coronavirus patients from being admitted into their facilities, a new state policy designed to make room at hospitals already stressed from a growing surge of critically ill patients.

Though not all 50 states are currently providing complete data, a huge percentage of the 83,231 COVID-19 deaths in the United States, as of 5 p.m. eastern on Tuesday, May 12, were among residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities......
