    Gov. Cuomo Forced Nursing Homes To Take COVID-19 Patients, Spiking Elderly Deaths

    May 11, 2020

    Back on March 25th, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order requiring nursing homes across the state to accept and house COVID-19 patients. Today, over 5% of New York’s nursing home residents have died from the novel coronavirus and as of publishing, 4,813 elderly residents of the state of New York have succumb to premature deaths by the China virus. 

    The executive order is below and it's especially interesting that Gov. Cuomo was nice enough to underline the most terrifying and damning portion:

    While Gov. Cuomo penned the order himself, almost a month later on April 20th, Cuomo claimed that he did not that coronavirus patients were being sent into the state's nursing facilities.

    From New York Post:

    Cuomo was asked about the state’s policy on admitting or readmitting to nursing homes people who’d tested positive for COVID-19.

    “That’s a good question, I don’t know,” the governor said.

    NY Post

    Other states have followed Cuomo’s lead on forcing long-term care facilities to readmit and house coronavirus patients including Pennsylvania, Michigan and New Jersey (see E.O.'s at end of this article).

    Similarly, Ontario's health-care unions are calling for an inquiry as well as criminal investigations into why there has been such a disproportionate number of COVID-19 deaths at their elderly care homes. 

    The union is calling for:

    • A public inquiry by the provincial government into the rising number of deaths of residents and front-line workers at long-term care homes, to be commissioned immediately.
    • Criminal negligence investigations by Toronto and Peel Regional Police at a yet-undisclosed number of long-term care homes and home care providers.
    • An investigation into the deaths by Ontario's Office of the Chief Coroner

    Like New York, these facilities were forced ,under threat of law, to take in those recently released from hospitals and could not be rejected or even tested for COVID-19, the virus that is extremely deadly to those over the age of 65. And this was a month after the new coronavirus ripped through the Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington causing at least 37 fatalities and 129 cases. 

    In early April, federal regulators fined the Kirkland nursing home over $600,000 after an inspection found “critical problems” that directly contributed to the coronavirus crisis there. Now the facility is facing multiple wrongful death lawsuits, as well after the federal inspection found “a number of deficiencies at the Kirkland nursing facility that placed patients' safety in imminent danger."

    President Trump once notoriously said before being elected that he could shoot somebody in the middle of Fifth Avenue and still have support. 

    Governor Cuomo has gone one step further and committed a mass murder of our society’s most vunerable and still has sky-high approval ratings. Even as the USNS Comfort arrived to helped ease the burden on New York City hospitals, Cuomo was still threatening nursing homes to take in sick and contagious patients. The naval ship left NYC just three weeks after it arrived, it's 1,000 bed capacity only treated a total of 182 patients.
