During Monday’s press briefing, Cuomo said it was health care workers who brought coronavirus into nursing homes that evidently infected and killed the tens of thousands of elderly people.
However, Cuomo failed to mention his own policies that permitted care facilities to accept infected staff workers and seniors. Instead, he urged people to solely resort to the “facts.”
“I want to make sure people have all the facts, the facts, the information. This past year, there is a toxic political environment and everything gets politicized,” Cuomo stated. “There is political spin and then there are facts. Two very different things, and I just want to be sure people have facts.”
This came amid growing calls for his resignation after one of his top aides admitted his administration willingly covered up data of nursing home deaths.
