Reuters: Cuomo acknowledges withholding New York nursing home pandemic death toll from lawmakers, public
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo acknowledged on Monday that his office should not have withheld data on COVID-19 nursing home deaths from state lawmakers, the public and press – falling short of an apology a senior aide made to lawmakers last week.
Cuomo’s remarks are doing little to calm those calling for an investigation into his actions.
