Brabenec: Nursing Home Deaths 50% Higher Than Gov. Cuomo Told Us

A statement from Assemblyman Karl Brabenec (R,C-Deerpark)

“The attorney general has released a report confirming that the Cuomo administration underreported COVID-19 nursing home and care facility deaths by 50 percent. This is appalling, but sadly, I’m not surprised. The governor has misled members of the Legislature and the public every step of the way. We need to hold him accountable for the tragedy and loss he caused with his executive order forcing facilities to take in COVID-positive people and his subsequent efforts to hide the full scope of the impact from us. We must remove his emergency powers and restore legislative oversight immediately.”
