- An audit from New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapol confirmed that former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo undercounted COVID deaths
- They failed to account for at least 4,100 nursing home deaths and as much as 50% from April 2020 to February 2021.
- Reminder: Then Governor Andrew Cuomo did this for political purposes
Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo just got exposed – again.
An audit released out of New York confirmed that his administration failed to account for at least 4,100 nursing home deaths.
The administration had previously admitted they did it for political reasons.
An audit released on Tuesday by the New York State government concluded that the administration of former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo failed to accurately account for the number of New Yorkers who died from the coronavirus in nursing homes.
According to an audit released Tuesday by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, Cuomo’s Health Department failed to account for 4,100 nursing home deaths and undercounted the coronavirus death toll in nursing homes by as much as 50% from April 2020 to February 2021.
“Families have a right to know if their loved one’s COVID-19 death was counted, but many still don’t have answers from the state Department of Health,” DiNapoli said in a statement released with the audit. “Our audit findings are extremely troubling. The public was misled by those at the highest level of state government through distortion and suppression of the facts when New Yorkers deserved the truth. The pandemic is not over, and I am hopeful the current administration will make changes to improve accountability and protect lives. An important step would be for DOH to provide the families who lost loved ones with answers as to the actual number of nursing homes residents who died. These families are still grieving, and they deserve no less.”
The audit states that the health department fell “well short” of its “moral” and “ethical” obligation to accurately report the deaths.
