(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) More than 40% of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. are connected to nursing homes, according to a report by the New York Times.

“I’ve taken political heat, OK. There’s facts and then there’s politics,” Cuomo told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday when asked if senior centers are safe.

Cuomo has also blamed nursing home staff members who “got infected and brought it in.”

“You look at the communities that had the high infection rate overall — those were the communities that had a high infection rate — so it is that the staff got infected. They came to work and they brought in the infection,” Cuomo told MSNBC last week.

Even the Democrats in his own state have publicly disagreed with Cuomo’s assessment of the situation.

State Sen. Liz Krueger, D-Manhattan, admitted to the New York Post that the state government has not received a “full and correct accounting of how many people died of COVID-19 in nursing homes and how many nursing residents transferred to hospitals died of COVID.”
