COVID-19: Cuomo Admits Lack Of Transparency On Reporting Nursing Home Data Amid Backlash

Link: https://dailyvoice.com/new-york/northsalem/politics/covid-19-cuomo-admits-lack-of-transparency-on-reporting-nursing-home-data-amid-backlash/803321/

Excerpt:

In his first public comments on a top aide’s admission that his administration “froze” when asked by both federal and state officials to release data on COVID-19 nursing home fatalities, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the lack of transparency was a mistake.

Cuomo said “there was a delay,” in reporting the data, and that void led to “skepticism, cynicism and conspiracy theories which furthered confusion” in a news briefing held in Albany on Monday, Feb. 15.

“We should have provided more information faster,” Cuomo said. “We were too focused on doing the job and addressing the crisis of the moment. I take total responsibility for that.”
