Tannousis Appalled by Attorney General Nursing Home Findings

A statement from Assemblyman Michael Tannousis (R,C-Staten Island, Brooklyn)

“This morning the New York attorney general released a 76-page report confirming what many of us have been fearing for months — the toll the virus took on our nursing home residents has been far worse than the state has been telling us. The number of deaths in nursing homes and care facilities was undercounted by up to 50 percent. We demand to know who knew this information and when they knew it. There needs to be severe consequences for those responsible for causing this disaster and then hiding it from us for so long. The legislature must move immediately to remove the governor's emergency powers and restore the balance of our state government, so this never happens again.”
