You can see I tweeted this when Cuomo said it back on the 20th.

No media pursued this death policy or dared to ask King Cuomo a critical question. https://twitter.com/PamelaGeller/status/1252268937829646337

.@NYGovCuomo says New York is re-admitting seniors with Coronavirus to nursing homes.

Is he nuts?

New York refused to send nursing home’s COVID-19 patients to nearly empty USNS Comfort

By Bernadette Hogan, Carl Campanile and Bruce Golding, NY Post, April 24, 2020:

The fix is obviously in on Cuomo’s ‘investigation’ of nursing-home horrors

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.

“We don’t have the ability to cohort right now based on staffing and we really want to protect our other patients,” Tuchman wrote in a chain of the emails reviewed by The Post. He was denied.

“I was told those facilities were only for hospitals” to send their overflow patients, Tuchman said.

At the time Tuchman sent his plea, only 134 of the 1,000 beds at the Javits Center were full and the Comfort — which had just been reconfigured to treat up to 500 COVID-19 patients — had a mere 62 on board.

Adding insult to injury, the Navy hospital ship wound up treating just 179 patients before Gov. Cuomo on Tuesday said it was no longer needed. Geller Report read more
