Cuomo holds press conference amid COVID-19 nursing home scandal
Aides to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo revealed that his state’s laws have been too relaxed on nursing homes and that no facilities have lost their licenses despite widespread COVID-19 deaths. “I think a lot of these nursing homes, frankly, retrospectively, even prior to COVID have been getting away with a lot for a lot of years,” Secretary to Gov. Cuomo, Melissa DeRosa said, according to audio of last week’s conference call with Democratic lawmakers reviewed by The New York Post.
