Who could have foreseen that placing infected COVID19 patients into nursing homes would result in more deaths in those facilities? Yet another article covers the attempt by NY Governor Cuomo (D) to cover up his crime of eldercide, by issuing orders to put the patients in the nursing homes. At the same time, all over the country, unused makeshift field hospitals which had been built to accommodate patients were torn down because no patients ever arrived.
From the article: “
New York officials have scrubbed Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s March 25 order requiring nursing homes to take in COVID-19 patients from the state health department website — even as Cuomo’s office insists that the order, which has been linked to thousands of nursing home deaths, remains in effect.
The web page that once contained the order now directs to a page indicating that the file is “not found.” The archive indicates that the deletion occurred sometime after May 5, around the time that criticism over New York’s nursing home fatalities intensified.
A copy of the page saved by the Internet archive Wayback Machine, however, shows that Cuomo’s order stated: “No resident shall be denied readmission or admission to the NH [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs [Nursing homes] are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”
