Cuomo Blames Nursing Home Deaths on Federal Government

Cuomo Blames Nursing Home Deaths on Federal Government

June 23, 2020

Monday on MSNBC Live, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo claimed his state had more nursing home deaths than any other because the government “never told us that this virus was coming from Europe and not from China.”

“Yes, we had more people die in nursing homes than anywhere else,” he conceded. “Because we had more people die. Because the federal government missed the boat and never told us that this virus was coming from Europe and not from China. And January, February, March, before they did the European travel ban, 3 million people came from Europe and brought the virus to New York, and the federal government didn’t know and the government and the CDC and all of them failed to handle this pandemic and warn this nation.

“So, New York had more cases, more deaths, and more deaths in nursing home[s],” he added. He then blamed the President for “killing people unnecessarily, by this irresponsible, reckless reopening. Those are the facts.”

The fact is that Cuomo’s own incompetence, not Trump, is responsible for the coronavirus death count.
