N.Y. COVID nursing home deaths may be 50% higher than reported
"The Office of State Attorney General Tish James has released a 76 page report on coronavirus deaths in nursing homes says New York may have undercounted covert deaths by thousands and nursing, almost perhaps over 50%. I'm not properly ending deaths of people who got the virus in the nursing homes and instead died in the hospital. State Health Commissioner, Dr Howard Zucker says the report actually shows there was no overall undercount. There are bipartisan calls for sucker and Governor Cuomo. To account for the discrepancies. The data on nursing home deaths and mismanagement in the attorney general's report is more than anyone has been able to obtain and release so far. It took the attorney general to do this. We could have had this information sooner and again. This has happened in spite of a lack of action. From the majorities who have subpoena power that Senate Republican leader Robert Orth suggesting Democrats could have done more. But Senator James Goofus, who chairs the investigation committee, disagrees. He says they've tried and the attorney general's report itself only draws its conclusions based on a sampling of 10% of nursing home data that information that data was not gotten from department health, they had to go out and get that sampling of information from the on the ground nursing home data that each of these homes keep, he says. It's a lack of transparent. See from both the state and nursing homes and health Commissioner Dr Howard Zucker will have to answer questions at a hearing next month and have to provide a more complete picture.

New York data show nursing home deaths undercounted by thousands
"Leticia James claims Governor Cuomo has under counted, the number of covert death said nursing homes by thousands. WCBS Steve Burns has a story for months. The Cuomo administration's count was around 8500. But those who lost loved ones in nursing homes knew the real number was much higher. Now that reality is becoming clear, almost cried. Which is, I think a common probably a common reaction by a lot of families. Queens Assembly member Ron Kim calls it a sense of justice to see Attorney General Tish James's report alleging Governor Cuomo undercounted the state's nursing home covert deaths by as much as 50%. Kim says Cuomo refused to share data if they were most prized parrots that there were more collaborative what thus we could have exposed some of the shortfalls early. James is also pushing back on Cuomo's narrative that it was nursing home employees who are most to blame for the outbreaks. James also blames poor training and protocols. Kim wants a nonpartisan commission. People need to be held accountable. The top Republican in the state Senate Rob board is calling on Health Commissioner Howard Zucker to resign. Steve Burns.

But might there be a way around that WCBS reporter posed the question to Dr Bruce Farber, chief of epidemiology at North well, Health. With vaccine shortages should vaccine providers go into the reserve of second doses to give first doses? I think the institute that question is difficult. I am one of those who believe that it would be Mistake's and an experiment to just give first doses. I do think it's important for people to get their second dopes. If supply is anticipated, and the second dose will need to be Laid for a reasonably short period of time. I don't think there will be a problem and if there is anticipated additional vaccine coming, then yes, that's certainly appropriate if there's no additional Destin coming and then I don't think we should be doing that because I don't think that we're up to the point or should get to the point where we only give one dose, which would be an experiment. And how effective is one does Well, one dose is, um, is It's pretty effective in terms of the absence of numbers at the end of the first dose, but They're not nearly as effective as the second dose strategy, and no one knows how long the immunity will last, with only one dose, and there's major concern that it would fade quickly. Now, if you don't get that if you use the doses, and you don't get that second shipment, how long can you wait before giving? The recipient. The second dose. Well, I think I think everyone feels like if it's a reasonable period of time, meaning days or week or two. There won't be a problem and that's certainly what we recommend. If somebody can't get back within Week or even two, even three of when they were supposed to. So if it's like a said, if it's a modest delay,.

I'm feeling optimistic. Maybe only i know. I'm feeling optimistic about the long run. Not so much about the short run for. I've been avidly watching your twitter account over these last couple days. And you've had some really important discussions on on your social media about efforts that you've made a newsrooms to cover white supremacy and obviously white supremacy and how journalists covered. It could not be more hot off the press right now. How can the media do better. I think that you all the journalists are are really making sure that the public is informed about a real threat that exists in our country. Right now yeah. I mean so just to give a little background on on what i've done. I've worked at places including newsweek. Cnn npr abc Produced my own independent radio documentaries during which Interviewed sheriff joe arpaio of maricopa county. Arizona who really sort of built the infrastructure of you know weaponising attacks on Mexicans to get votes and so I was working during the last election. Cycle twenty sixteen at five thirty eight. And i have. I tried to do job and I didn't get to do my job as well as i would like. And it really made me sad. And so i ended up writing right after the end of the two thousand sixteen election. I wrote this blog. Post forty four hundred words called the call to whiteness basically And the subtitle talked about how there was an inadequate establishment whiteness response. And what i meant by that. Was that people who consider america. America talk rec- and whiteness to be of no particular influence on that meritocracy. We're not challenging. The dominance over the rising dominance of the white nationalist narrative to establishment whiteness. White nationalist are like no. It's not a meritocracy. We need to have an advantage and we will do it by force if we need to. And so i won't go too deep into that rabbit hole but this is not just a failure of you know white supremacy and white nationalism. It's a failure of what i call establishment whiteness to take a threat to their own cultural dominance. Seriously i was there to say look. American politics has many different types of political organizers white supremacists. Our political organizers vehicle organizers and have been since the beginning of our democracy so let's stop putting them in this little box as oh those weird people doing those weird things off in the corner. They are your lunch lady. Your teacher your congressperson. Your you know Adam serwer has a piece called the respectable s- which we may talk about more later about how olympic gold medalists and active military members have been arrested for teaching the capital at that. Such a good point that you are making for an end it is worth pointing out here as we are Transitioning from the trump administration to You know this new Administration because of of the black journalist that that tried to talk about The role of race racism in our politics in our democracy that we have seen over the past at least eight if not twelve years You know in terms of modern politics What really struck me is just. Yeah i mean frankly the hypocrisy i mean when when we were on the ground in places like ferguson and baltimore and You know covering the emerging black lives matter movement. I mean we. We were questioned about whether we could objectively. You know kind of cover This movement even as our lived experience frankly gave us an advantage to to seeing that story and to understanding the dynamics of what we needed to be talking about and so there has never been questioned in these past four years about whether white folks could be objective about covering Whiteness as an identity as identity politics right The rise of white supremacy as it has been emboldened past four years You know what. I mean that that was not a conversation and it should have been frankly. It should have been. And i'm glad that that folks like you are amplifying it now because Guess what we were not post racial in two thousand eight and we're not going to be post racial after january twentieth so i would get it for folks who are covering politics going forward that they have a working understanding of the history of race and racism in this country because it is absolutely necessary to cover this democracy to cover our society Going forward. yeah. There's a lot of talk about senator josh hawley of missouri. Who was seen with his fist. Raised in support of a riotous last week in boats are holly and another republican senator ted cruz of texas. Who of course ran against donald trump in this sixteen republican primary before becoming an ally of the president's neither of them back down from from their objections to the certification of biden's presidency Even after the violence of january six so You know. Just i'm gonna come back to you. Can we assume that the crews in holly are kind of posturing themselves as the figurehead for trump supporters in their resentments. Yeah i feel like it's really important to remember that there's trump himself as a figure and then there's also trumpism is part and parcel with what the republican party is. Now and ted cruz is kind of been frankly you you know a trump a trump ism follower for a long time even before the two thousand sixteen election but you see now trained to kind of get in The mix there and make his bones as like a an error to to trump and trumpism. But i think even more than that the person that i really think is trying to be a figurehead for trump and his supporters in there is actually mitch mcconnell. He doesn't do the press in the same way but the all the tendons of trumpism are absolutely there. He's waste avenir than a cruiser. Holly very precarious moment right now. In our country's leaders they're literally not safe walking around in the united states capitol which is scary completely agree jess i. I would say that one. Framing that i want to put on the table is that i do think i understand a little bit. About some of the motivations people are getting high. Off of this you know and There is an emotional high like you know. Human beings are a chemistry experiment. Within a biological construct regaining serotonin and cortisol. And all these different things happening. And you know some people get a rush from doing things like storming the capital and this was planned siege and just imagine all of the chemicals running through people's bodies and it comes out of a belief system that they are doing the right thing like we can never forget that in that framing they were doing the right thing for democracy and once you begin to at least understand that framing you understand why people are willing to risk death risk arrest and risk democracy and also with their understanding of democracy is right and that was something i wrote about You know in my piece After the insurrection because It is not a coincidence that this came on the heels of the georgia senate runoff. Where you saw black voters again Really showing up and showing out to overcome voter suppression right. And they're just been this ongoing drumbeat from the president In in claiming voter fraud Claiming a rigged election claiming illegitimate votes right like the votes. That he was talking about war black votes and so the idea that the election was not legitimate because this many black and brown voters You had had participated.
