Next, the Casino star shared a New York Post article in which New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker is revealed to have failed to track nursing home deaths for an entire month after the state reported its first virus death. . . .

. . . One key criticism is that New York took weeks after the first known home care outbreaks to begin publicly reporting the number of deaths in individual homes — and still doesn’t report the number of cases. By the time New York began disclosing the deaths in the middle of last month, the state had several major outbreaks with at least 40 deaths each, most of which were a surprise to the surrounding communities and even some family members.

If Trump did his job there would not have been the giant infection numbers in NYC. WOODS OVERLOOKS THAT

Why is he to blame for the large number of infections when DeBlasio was still advocating going to bars and/or the movies in March??


Trump let the more dangerous European strain fly for weeks into NYC . IT IS THAT SIMPLE. The CDC told him and he ," didn’t want to offend them. " He focussed on China

Now in addition to New York Democrats calling for an investigation into Cuomo’s bungling of the state’s elderly, there are now calls for a federal investigation.

GOP Rep. Stefanik: Federal Investigation Needed into Cuomo’s Handling of Nursing Homes During Coronavirus Outbreak


19 May 2020

In an appearance on Fox News Channel on Tuesday, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) explained her call for an investigation into Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) and New York State government for the handling of nursing home policy at the outset of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Stefanik said the investigation should come from the federal government, not her state’s attorney general.

"New York has mismanaged how we approached and how we protected our seniors in our nursing homes,” she said. “We knew going into this that our most vulnerable are our seniors and particularly in those assisted living facilities, whether they’re senior living facilities or nursing homes. New York, when compared to other states, took a number of negative actions that cost over 5,000 lives. The governor took executive action, forcing positive COVID cases back into nursing homes. There was zero transparency in terms of informing the seniors, the workers, or the family members, whether there were positive cases. They also didn’t fully tell the public how many seniors deaths there were coming from nursing homes. So that reporting data, they didn’t count the hospital deaths when there was a positive case that was transmitted because of the senior nursing home.”

“We took the opposite approach in my district, and I have to applaud the county public health officials,” Stefanik continued. “In our first case of a senior assisted living facility, the county public health office, this was not taking guidance from New York State. They did this on their own. . . .



Andrew Cuomo Dismisses Nursing Home Scandal: ‘We Did Everything We Could’

Appearing Tuesday on MSNBC, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) attempted to dismiss growing accusations that his administration failed to protect nursing home residents during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, asserting: “We did everything we could” and did not skip any “precautions.” . . .


Florida is not NY. NYC Airports are the East Coast hubs that fly to Europe. Florida got a trickle from NY in spring break, tourism and portions of the population travelling between South Florida and NY.
THE epicenter is NY. NEW ROCHELLE initially then elsewhere.
NYC moves millions each day in close quarter mass transit.
Florida has no mass transit to speak of.
Breitbarts founder is Republican opposition to Cuomo in NYC. LOCAL POLITICS. Cuomo is perhaps the most popular politician in America and that worries rivals.
So enjoy the psudo-attack. The 73% favorable voters really don’t read those sources.
Of course the polls regarding handling Covid 19 has Cuomo at…GET THIS…81% WHHHOPING . MORE THAN TWICE TRUMPS NUMBER. LOL


The epicenter of New York corona virus infections has been it’s nursing homes.

As usual Maximus1, I disagree with you.

I didn’t say the nursing homes were not hard hit.
I am saying the infection in NY , INCLUDING NURSING HOMES, is confirmed to have originated in Europe. It is here apparently because TRUMP didn’t want to offend Europe initially. Trump put his focus on CHINA, but their virus came by way of European international flights into Kennedy and other east coast hub flights.

So it was really Trump that sent the infected patients INTO the nursing home Maximus1?

Is THAT your premise here?


Italy was the only country in Europe that had an epidemic when Trump closed it borders as of March 10th( the first deaths from covid-19 were on the 22nd of February and a full lockdown throughout Italy imposed the 8th of March).

China was already in FULL epidemic mode by the 23 of January.

But we now know through CDC that the NY infection came via Europe.
When you look at the points of infection you don’t look at the day symptoms begin and certainly not death.

You don’t close your borders with a whole continent because of several cases in one country.

The reason Trump closed U.S. borders with China was because it was already in epidemic mode by the 23 of January.


You close the border when the data shows you have to. Trump had that data available.
Taiwan never closed and they have weeks now with no new cases.
They did what you say you shouldnt

What was the data that would suggest he close U.S. borders to Europe earlier than he did?

China only let on about human to human transmission the 20th of January and the W.H.O parlayed this as fact prior. It didn’t help that China wouldn’t even allow for the international scientific community to help them and/or destroyed samples and data pertaining to Covid-19.


What day do you think China should have announced the confirmation of human to human transmission?
What is the actual evidence on which that announcement would have been based?

We know about Cuomo’s order. Sure we know about the flood of infected cases from Europe. But we also know Cuomo’s order effectively threw gas on the fire at the moment he needed to be withdrawing the oxygen from that fire. The hospital overloads in NY were a direct result of this misguided policy.

We know how DeSantis handled the nursing homes. He saw, as we all did, what had happened in WA and was happening in Italy so he and his staff acted with the prudence that Cuomo et al clearly did not display. Knowing what happened to the nursing homes in NY and elsewhere, knowing how many seniors and long term care facilities there are in FL, we can easily imagine the death toll had DeSantis issued a similar order to Cuomo.

The media kept predicting disaster in FL for weeks on end, similar to NY. But FL didn’t mishandle its seniors like NY did. So the expected disaster did not materialize.


I’ve already established that timeline, but here goes again, the CCP already knew of human to human transmission prior to January 20th, they in fact knew January 14th and let the W.H.O. believe otherwise. I opened a thread awhile back citing an article by the Associated Press stating how the Chinese government lied and detained the admission.
