The administration of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has completed its look into whether his policy of admitting COVID-19 patients into nursing homes was responsible for thousands of deaths. The results of their probe won’t surprise you:
Cuomo agency report: other factors, not Cuomo policy, to blame for nursing home deaths https://t.co/yRSBAo7Fk6

Here is the Cuomo admin's 33-page report that concludes, basically, that NYS policy issued 3/25 re mandatory admission of Covid+ patients by state-reg nursing homes was not "a significant factor" for thousands of nursing home deaths in New York State. https://t.co/EqPcI9dGBR

Must be nice to be able to investigate yourself:
Cuomo investigated himself and found no wrong doing. Like always.

For their next trick, they'll publish a report conclusively demonstrating that mass leftwing protests were also not a significant factor for COVID-19. https://t.co/aX6BM4a6zU

GOP Reps Elise Stefanik and Steve Scalise are among those not buying it:
Everyone knows this is a joke & not a real report or investigation.
There needs to be an independent investigation into NY’s fatal nursing home policy.

Disgusting. Cuomo’s latest “report” is just another attempt to cover up the deadly outcome of his own decision to force COVID-19 patients into nursing homes.
This from the same man who is still trying to blame the workers who cared for these seniors.
He has no shame. https://t.co/je5qEJki6H

One luxury certain government officials have is the ability to investigate and clear themselves of any wrongdoing.
I’m still don’t understand the methodology for how the agency was able to determine that the 3/25 directive was not a "driver of nursing home infections or fatalities.” https://t.co/Lgd548ZUew

More Americans have died in New York nursing homes than have died in the entire state of Florida, which not only has a larger population but a population that skews older. #KillerCuomohttps://t.co/9h41G49l6w

I investigated myself and it turns out I’m awesome and do great work. https://t.co/rWBEyms9Jw

Now the media will point to this report as a way to "debunk" any claims made against Cuomo. https://t.co/b0fMhgI4uv
