An audit released on Tuesday by the New York State government concluded that the administration of former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo failed to accurately account for the number of New Yorkers who died from the coronavirus in nursing homes.

According to an audit released Tuesday by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, Cuomo’s Health Department failed to account for 4,100 nursing home deaths and undercounted the coronavirus death toll in nursing homes by as much as 50% from April 2020 to February 2021.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Families have a right to know if their loved one’s COVID-19 death was counted, but many still don’t have answers from the state Department of Health,” DiNapoli said in a statement released with the audit. “Our audit findings are extremely troubling. The public was misled by those at the highest level of state government through distortion and suppression of the facts when New Yorkers deserved the truth. The pandemic is not over, and I am hopeful the current administration will make changes to improve accountability and protect lives. An important step would be for DOH to provide the families who lost loved ones with answers as to the actual number of nursing homes residents who died. These families are still grieving, and they deserve no less.”


The audit also reveals that New York’s health department fell “well short” of its “moral” and “ethical” obligation to accurately report the deaths.

“The pandemic was devastating and deadly for New Yorkers in nursing homes. Our audit findings are troubling and demonstrate missed opportunities to protect nursing home residents,” DiNapoli wrote as he shared a link to the audit results on Twitter.

“The state should provide the families who lost loved ones with answers as to the actual number of nursing homes residents who died. These families are still grieving, and they deserve no less,” DiNapoli added.

Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean, whose parents-in-law were including in those who died in nursing homes, tweeted, “Dear @GovKathyHochul. In light of @NYSComptroller’s nursing home state audit, you need to call for a complete top to bottom bipartisan investigation of what happened in New York nursing homes and the part your administration played in deaths of thousands of seniors.”

“Cuomo’s actions were never about protecting our most vulnerable, they were about pure egotism and self-enrichment at the cost of others’ lives,” tweeted New York state lawmaker Ron Kim.

  1. All the Democrats get away with everything. It’s how corrupt this world is. They are fully protected and they know it so they aren’t afraid to commit the worse of the worst!

  2. The Dems didn’t want to report all those deaths, because a huge % of them came from Cuomo’s idiotic and insane order that nursing homes could not ‘discriminate’ against people who had tested positive for the virus. Oh, discrimination is bad! Well actually it means telling the difference between people, and Cuomo’s stupid order put people with Covid into nursing homes. This is a crime against humanity caused by his Democratic policies.

  3. Cuomo and his administration purposely hid the real numbers of Covid nursing home (NH) deaths. Yet, his horrible NH mandate still will not be held accountable along with other governors who did the same. I pray to God Almighty that the deaths of NH patients, their families receive their justice.

    This is infuriating and despicable!

    May God have mercy on all who were involved.

  4. The people who vote and continue to vote for those A-hole democrats will never know how evil the demorats are because they only get their news from the fake mainstream media who cover it all up

  5. Cuomo killed your parents and grandparents just to inflate the number of covid deaths. Are you mad yet??? Murderer Cuomo!
