NY Governor Holds First Press Conference Since Last Wednesday, Denies Nursing Home Cover-Up

New York’s governor yesterday tried to shift the blame for nursing home deaths and the inaccurate reporting of the fatality numbers there during the pandemic, on — the pandemic. New York governor Andrew Cuomo said he understands the public and the media have lots of questions…

But Cuomo’s actions aren’t sitting well with state Republicans. North Rockland and Orange County state senator James Skoufis, a Democrat, is also in their cross hairs. Rockland GOP Chairman Lawrence Garvey says Skoufis should give up his position as chairman of the Investigations Committee…

Cuomo says “there’s nothing to investigate” over the video conference call with Democratic lawmakers last week, including senator Skoufis, during which the governor’s Secretary Melissa DeRosa confessed under-reporting the number of deaths in the state’s nursing homes. Senator Skoufis could not be reached for comment.
