"Cuomo has been doing a victory lap over the Improved numbers in New York. However, there's a piece in USA Today by Janice Dean. Janice Dean is the Fox news meteorologist. And she said Covert 19 killed my in laws after Cuomo's reckless New York nursing home policy. She said. First didn't blame anybody. This is a pandemic. Then we learn about the policy that put them in danger. She says. Then we learned that Cuomo's administration March 25 order that recovering Corona virus patient be placed into nursing homes. Mandate also borrowed nursing homes from requiring incoming patients to be tested prior to admission, readmission. She says that order state into effect for 46 days, during which time over 6000 patients with the virus replaced in these facilities, housing our most vulnerable To date, at least 6500 of our most helpless seniors have been killed by the virus. Even the governor himself said the virus could sweep through nursing homes like fire through dry grass. She said. We had no idea until it was too late. She says he can't believe it's not a bigger story. She says. It's a puff piece past puff piece. Interview with Good Morning America CBS morning. Today, Tonight show by Jimmy Fallon People magazines to have asking important questions all focused on the governor's love life. She said it was infuriating.

Indoor Fitness Centers Fighting To Reopen In New York
"Owners of small gems in New York are teaming up. They're suing the Cuomo administration for the right to reopen WCBS reporter Marla Diamond spoke to an owner, one of them on the Upper West Side boutique. Gym.

Did New York's Coronavirus Response Make the Pandemic Worse?
"Did new York's coronavirus response make the pandemic here worse the Wall Street journal talked to nearly ninety frontline doctors nurses health care workers hospital administrators and government officials and they learned that the response may have been off the mark way off the mark the response included missed warning signs and policies that many healthcare workers say they didn't agree with Shalini Ramachandran is one of the reporters who worked on the story I spoke to her earlier and asked if any factors led to the virus being worse here in the city then it needed to be and if that possibly lead to more deaths we definitely found evidence of that that could have been avoided so many healthcare workers told us about that of patients that Daschle could have been avoided interact one one healthcare worker at actually couple healthcare workers that elm Hurst one of the hardest hit New York hospital estimated that thirty to forty percent of patients who died there could have been saved with more staffing and better early on there were mixed messages being given out and so the city didn't really have a solid response as early as it could is that what your report found yes and it it you know in fact that few had anticipated view these impact happening including the federal government but you know once once there were missed warning signs that New York we're standing on it one of which is their their early finding the virus with arrivals according to arise in patients with flu like symptoms within hospital testing negative for the flu which we seem to have gone largely uninvestigated by hospital stay including official even when doctors were starting to raise alarms so for instance a doctor again at Elmhurst who who thought that they were early March you're worried that they're missing community spread of the virus and when they call the health department to get patients tested it rejected for testing even many patients who satisfy the criteria which is pretty restrictive at the time and it began and it would lead to like contracted an unproductive call the city health department that's just one example and and by the time the rhetoric from the New York leaders because we're well prepared I'm still there well prepared on March second Mister Lazio tweeted that people should go see a movie so the rhetoric with all you know New York has the phone control not no need to worry here you also found that the squabbling between the Cuomo administration and the Blasi administration between Cuomo and de Blasio actually did not help matters no I do not matter in those crucial couple weeks when leaders were trying to decide how soon to shut things down it also then it wouldn't help in actually helping court coordinate these sick patients from the harder hit hospitals to get to places where they were available beds and available staff so it's going to think that we found was that the city had reached out to the state to ask to create the centralized evacuation hub that had previously been use for emergencies like sandy Hooper storm sandy and twice the state department of health denied the request and eventually what the state does it does it gave the green light to creating how does only focus on the Javits center in the comfort navy ship which he could recall disappointed hospital executives because they weren't initially billed for critical care or to take coded patient but they're in the fact that there wasn't a coordinating government response to help public and private hospitals Courtney transfers and make sure the patients are transferred thankfully the end many healthcare workers I'll be going to that as as a major issue what else could have been done better or should have been done better healthcare workers were saying you know nurses respiratory therapists who are really the key people to manage patients with breathing problems were on Metalik they've been raising alarms for four years that that staffing levels were low in the hospital but had sort of always felt that they got a deaf ear and and then during a pandemic the hospital added hundreds of the intensive care beds but not always enough trained staff in the training staff is important because if you can't throw any nurse or doctor at a critically ill patient need somebody trained in critical care so what should have governor Cuomo mayor de Blasio healthcare officials here in the city what should they have all learned from this I I think like the big takeaway here are just unlock the real need for early coordination and planning with all the hospitals I you know even before the before a crisis hits I think I think the takeaways were leader should be don't just focus on that later get make sure your oxygen supply vital fine liners dialysis machines I need called make sure their stockpile of damage and also a reserve of train medical staff you can call on to help in disasters where you know New York what happened was there was a red tape put out by the hospital that led to the traveling medical staff when we arrived in Kuwait and so a disaster reserves the phone would be helpful to have so that you know slipped when they can bring in credential people that have been you know pre vetted and not an issue I think that it's also making sure that whatever the stockpile in your state should be tested and checked it constantly the city's public health said that many state metal layers were not ready to go and do that kind of thing definitely feels like a laptop that could have been

Explained: Why New York has emerged the epicenter of the US’s COVID-19 outbreak
"York is suffering more drastically than any other state. By far as of right now there has been tragically. Three hundred sixty thousand confirmed cases of coronavirus virus in New York and over twenty three thousand deaths by the time. I am recording this. That is in a state of nineteen million people. Now let's do some compare and contrast in Florida a state of over twenty one million people and a large a large elderly population. There has been only about fifty thousand confirmed cases in only about twenty two hundred deaths so twenty to one hundred deaths in Florida versus over twenty three thousand deaths in the state of New York and Florida is more populous and Texas state with twenty nine million people has had about fifty four thousand cases with only about fifteen hundred deaths again. Fifteen hundred deaths versus twenty three thousand deaths in New York and these states have also had much less restrictive lockdowns. Now there is no doubt that New York is different. It is more densely populated a lot more public transportation. That's much more used than in places like Florida and New York are places like Florida and taxes And I especially true of course in in New York City where most of its cases are but cannot really be the only reason it couldn't possibly be that maybe leadership has fumbled that. Maybe they haven't done as good of a job as the media has said that they are doing. So let's review some facts about Cuomo state and examine. Why possibly they have run into so much trouble. We've talked about this in the past. It bears repeating so the state of New York was facing a budget crisis before all of this happened back in November. The New York Post reported that New York face a six point one billion hole in their budget for this year and Cuomo's planning on making cuts to Medicaid rates for hospitals and nursing homes. They fail to present a real plan. Criticized Dave Free Del of the Citizens Budget Commission. A fiscal watchdog group. They've known about this for a long time but the plan they did present is really one part. Gimmick he added his analysis shows. The state was already in trouble after pushing off a one point. Seven BILLION DOLLAR MEDICAID BILL IN MARCH Two thousand nineteen into Into two thousand twenty which grew into the four billion dollars according to an article in the nation. A left-wing commentary magazine. Obviously I don't agree with a lot of what they write but they can be pretty good at holding Democrats accountable. This is an article by Ross Bark. Entitled Cuomo Helped Get New York into this mess. Governor Cuomo has long mismanaged the budget and the Medicaid Program program in the state and has reduced the size of hospitals. Here's some excerpts from the article in which he argues that some of the budgetary abyss has been the CUOMO administration's own making postponing Medicaid payments and failing in the past iron out inefficiencies. Like the state's pain Medicaid costs for relatively wealthy. Private hospitals are relatively wealthy private hospitals. That don't need the aid in the first place. What's more this has lost. More than twenty thousand hospital beds over the last twenty years Cuomo who has governed for almost half that period CUOMO has governed since two thousand eleven. Never advocated for any kind of expansion of hospital beds until last month he now says New York needs one hundred. Ten thousand says this is a couple months ago more than double the current capacity. He has never been a forceful advocate for keeping hospitals open in fact he is empowered bureaucrats who have argued aggressively to shudder them in two thousand.
