'I do not accept his explanation': NYC mayor slams Cuomo response to nursing home revelations

Source: New York Daily News

Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday repeated his demands for more answers about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of COVID deaths at New York nursing homes since the outstart of the pandemic.

On March 25, 2020, the Cuomo administration issued a directive barring nursing homes from refusing patients based solely on a COVID-19 diagnosis. Cuomo defended the directive as an effort to prevent catastrophic hospital overcrowding and discrimination against virus patients.

However, earlier this month, New York Democratic attorney general Letitia James issued a report which reprimanded the Cuomo administration for minimizing the death toll at nursing homes by excluding certain fatalities from the count. Cuomo’s administration then revealed at least 15,000 people living in long-term care facilities have died of COVID-19, nearly double the number Cuomo had initially disclosed.

“I do not accept his explanation,” Hizzoner said, adding that he hasn’t spoken to the governor since Cuomo expressed regret last week for creating a “void” of info about the deaths.

6. The Mayor is 100% correct

He's been bullied for years by Cuomo.

8. "voting for anyone but Bill?" He rubs me the wrong way and...

would probably vote against him in a primary but I'd vote for him over a GQP twit in a heartbeat.
