Andrew Cuomo’s coronavirus nursing
home policy proves tragic

The letter was heartbreaking as it recounted the death of an 88-year-old woman in a New York nursing home. But it was also angry and accurate about a strange New York policy that is ­fatally wrongheaded. “I am wondering who will hold Gov. Cuomo accountable for the deaths of so many older people due to his reckless decision to place covid19 patients in nursing and rehabilitation homes,” the letter began. “I am writing as a daughter who lost her beautiful 88 year old mother who was receiving physical therapy at one such facility.”

I always wondered why the homeless and even criminals, at least in California cities and possibly in NYC, were placed in hotel rooms while the elderly were left in nursing homes. Why weren't the elderly put in the hotel rooms and provided with home health care? That would seem to have made a lot more sense.

Oh yeah, and Cuomo is on deck for coronavirus coronation and the DNC's up-and-comer after sundown Joe. I know because the MSM, leftists and the neverTrumpers (but I repeat myself) have told me so.

If there was a shelter in place again, I would be hauling my parent out of nursing care- and provide in home care at my home. Period. The Reason for shelter in place is protection of vulnerable and frail.. Cuomo hurt and endangered that population.

I would like to see Governor Cuomo asked this question: Governor would you put your mother into a nursing home with seniors that have tested positive for Corona Virus? If not, can you please explain why you think your administration policy on nursing homes is following your stated position to protect the most vulnerable?

I would like to see the percentage, overall, of deaths in nursing homes or other confined spaces. I would bet it is substantial. It seems rather obvious that the virus spreads by close and likely prolonged contact with someone who is infected. People probably aren't getting sick from touching groceries or doorknobs. As for the nursing homes, there should be testing of everyone and the sick need to be removed to a hospital or other place where they can be treated in isolation. I see a lot of lawsuits coming out of this.

I thought I heard him answer the question of why former virus patients were returned to nursing homes. He said, "I don't know!" If he thinks PDT should know everything about every place in the United States, he should know about everything happening in his state.

Sorry, but I've had enough of sad letters written by grief stricken survivors or "overworked heathcare workers", very few ever identified. Propaganda comes from all sides from all directions...all meant to mislead.

This was an unbelievable error. “Nursing homes” - usuallly called “convalescent care” here in Southern California - are often used by post-surgery patients when physical therapy is needed before they go home. My surgeon gave me an option - convalescent facility or home with visiting PT. I chose the latter because I had help at home. Those who do not, end up in convalescent care facilities. They are more accurately called skilled nursing facilities and they are not just for the aged.

I read in another article that the NY seniors that tested positive in the hospital were transported back to the nursing home and were accompanied with body bags. In essences, they were sent back to the nursing home to die. What happened to Cuomo saying, "Every life counts". This is criminal. https://nypost.com/2020/04/23/coronavirus-patients-admitted-to-queens-nursing-home-with-body-bags/

It's OK to release prisoners to prevent spread of virus in the jails but don't do anything about the nursing homes for the aged. That's the way to manage things? What the hell is wrong with people?

#13 nails it. Ideology is in charge here. I heard Goodwin say on Tucker Carlson that the nursing home wasn't warned, trained or prepared, and couldn't even asked if incoming had been tested for the virus. Carlson said, correctly, that not being allowed to inquire is the tell, that ideology is valued over health.

New York health officials were warned in writing that a Brooklyn nursing home where 55 patients have died of coronavirus was overwhelmed — weeks before it began topping the state’s official list of resident COVID-19 deaths, damning emails show. Cobble Hill Health Center CEO Donny Tuchman sent a desperate email to state Health Department officials on April 9, asking if there was “a way for us to send our suspected covid patients” to the hospital built inside the Javits Convention Center or the US Naval hospital ship Comfort — the under-utilized federal medical facilities on Manhattan’s West Side.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, said he would undoubtedly select former first lady Michelle Obama to be his running mate, though he admitted she likely does not want to jump back into politics anytime soon. “I’d take her in a heartbeat,” Biden said in a Monday interview with CBS Pittsburgh when asked if he would add Obama to the ticket. “She’s brilliant.

Mike Smith is the Hollywood stuntman behind the conspiracy documentary, “Out of Shadows.” Smith says in the documentary that while he rehabbed an injury on his pelvis that he suffered while filming, he had a spiritual awakening. Smith says, “I didn’t find God because I went to church. I found God because I realized that the Luciferian and the occult world was real and that I had been fooled for all of these years and I then got really scared.” Smith goes on to say that he became a Christian again because of his belief that Hollywood and the entertainment industry was influenced by Satan.

JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST – In the event of a coronavirus outbreak in the United States, this sprawling military installation in Ocean and Burlington counties was designated Thursday as an emergency camp to quarantine potential patients. U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark T. Esper was asked by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to select forts and bases near 11 major airports that could house airline or cruise ship passengers, should existing designated sites become filled, according to the Pentagon. The Joint Base was designated because of its proximity to Newark Liberty International Airport.

Sen. Mitt Romney brushed off Democrats for complaining about the Senate’s decision to follow trial rules similar to those used during President Bill Clinton’s impeachment. Romney, 72, the junior senator for Utah and 2012 Republican presidential nominee, has been one of the few Senate Republicans to question President Trump’s behavior in the events that led to impeachment, but he claimed that Democrats have taken their protests too far. While speaking to CNN on Monday, the Utah senator criticized his Democratic colleagues for opposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's version of the impeachment trial rules that were used during Clinton’s impeachment.

The Iranian government’s admission on Saturday that it shot down a Ukrainian commercial airliner triggered widespread protests nationwide attended by hundreds chanting slogans against the regime and the former head of its foreign terrorist organization, Qasem Soleimani. An American airstrike eliminated Soleimani, officially the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, in Baghdad this month. The IRGC is a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization; Soleimani led Iran’s terrorism operations abroad and was particularly active in Iraq and Syria against American soldiers.

We all deserve protection from the coronavirus, which is now our nation’s second-leading cause of death. To get it, we must cooperate and make sacrifices. Our culture has a wonderful way of taking controversial or partisan figures and weaving them into the broader story of America. When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, for example, his secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, purportedly said, “Now he belongs to the ages,” which was a way of saying that the battles Lincoln fought and the leadership he provided would stay with us and shape the nation going forward.

Though Abrams has benefited from fawning media praise, selecting her would come with its downsides for Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. Here are five reasons why Abrams would be a risky choice. Abrams has never been elected to an office higher than Georgia state representative, serving as minority leader in the state legislature — and she doesn’t even hold that office at the current moment.

The novel coronavirus pandemic will define the modern era in the same way World War II shaped an earlier generation, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says in a 11-page memo outlining his ideas on how best to tackle the disease. “This is like a world war, except in this case, we’re all on the same side,” he writes. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $250 million to the battle and Gates has been speaking up regularly to influence its direction — something that has sometimes placed him at odds with President Donald Trump and made him a target of right-wing pundits and conspiracy theorists.

The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery. Tucker Carlson asked Whitsett if the governor ever called the representative to simply say, "I'm so glad you didn't die?" "Actually, it was not as pleasant as that," Rep. Whitsett began, "and the text messages that we have had since then have not been as pleasant as well."

When you think of it, it's nothing short of incredible that Joe Biden is the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party. One might have thought 2016 would have been Biden's year (if he was ever going to have a time at bat), since Barack Obama's two-term presidency had just ended, and most vice presidents who try for the top spot do so immediately following their bosses' departures. But, as is often the case in politics these days, party nominees can result from when the party decides it's someone's "turn." That was the case the last go-around: the Democrats decided that it was Hillary's turn,

Washington—President Donald Trump said Friday that he won’t approve a $10 billion loan for the U.S. Postal Service unless the agency raises charges for Amazon and other big shippers to four to five times current rates. “The Postal Service is a joke because they’re handing out packages for Amazon and other internet companies and every time they bring a package, they lose money on it,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. The president was responding to a question about reports his administration plans to force major changes in postal operations as the price for approving a $10 billion loan that was included in the government’s $2 trillion economic rescue package.

Every time you think Donald Trump has lost his talent for making people’s heads explode, he somehow excels himself. His latest? Telling Americans that injecting disinfectant and shining UV light could cure COVID-19 patients. You’ll have seen the clip already, everybody has, but it is worth watching again: “It gets in the lungs and does a tremendous number on the lungs.”(Snip for tweet) This was a Trumpian masterpiece. I particularly enjoyed the way he turned to Dr Birx for validation, while his mouth trotted out the peculiar ideas. And I find it hilarious, even though I know we are all supposed to be horrified
