Monday’s CBS This Morning highlighted the “devastating toll” the coronavirus is having on nursing homes in this country, noting that 28,000 deaths are connected to nursing homes. What wasn’t mentioned at all in the four minute-plus segment? New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s disastrous decision to send COVID patients to nursing homes. Somehow, that never came up at all.

Co-host Anthony Mason explained, “We could soon get a clearer picture of the devastating toll the pandemic has had on nursing homes. More than 15,000 nursing homes had to submit their first reports on coronavirus deaths and infections to the federal government by last night.” He added, “CBS News has confirmed that of the more than 89,000 deaths from the coronavirus, more than 28,000 were connected to nursing homes, nearly a third of the total.”


FoxNews.com detailed Cuomo’s actions and the stark toll:

Cuomo has come under fire for his policy enacted March 25 forcing nursing homes to take in COVID-19 positive patients, which has only recently been reversed.

(….)

More than 4,800 people died from COVID-19 in nursing homes in New York from March 1 to May 1, according to a count by the governor’s office. Roughly 25 percent of all deaths in the state occurred in nursing homes.

Back on May 5, the New York Post’s Michael Goodwin wrote in an op-ed entitled “This nursing home disaster is on you, Gov. Cuomo”:

The March 25 order that forced infected patients on them allows for no exceptions and has not been changed.

Over 1,700 more coronavirus deaths reported in NY nursing homes

The killer fifth paragraph still reads: “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to ­admission or readmission.”

Yet, while CBS ignored New York and Cuomo on Monday, the network hailed Cuomo back in April. On the April 19 Face the Nation, John Dickerson showcased the Democrat as an example of a real “leader”:

DICKERSON: In an age of finger-pointing, blame-shifting and spin, it can be bracing to simply hear a leader take responsibility.

CUOMO: If you are upset by what we have done, be upset at me. My judgment is do whatever`s necessary to contain this virus and then we will manage the consequences afterwards. The old expression, the buck stops on my desk, the buck stops on my desk. Your local mayor did not close your restaurants, your bars, your gyms or your schools. I did. I did.

Dickerson added, “Leaders identify a need, make a plan, and follow through.” How did that plan work out in New York?

In comparison, NBC called out Cuomo back on May 11.

My 87-year-old mother has been locked down in a retirement home since March 14, six long weeks she cannot walk in the fresh air or visit with family. She's a widow.

I called late last week to ask how many residents have died. None, I was told.

Then why haven't you opened your doors? "Well, there has been a death in town." Just when WILL you open your doors? (She had to find the directive from the state.)

"When there have been no deaths."

It's so sad.  A friend said his Dad who is in an assisted living facility is scared to death. He watches TV and the news all day.   All the staff wear masks and he has such limited human contact as it is and now the people he sees aren't even face to face.  It's like a bad Twilight episode.

There is one lady who lives there and has cancer and she is in "quarantine" and is allowed no visitors whatsoever.  :(

Gosh, I forgot to mention: there have been no cases at the retirement home at all.

But then she's not living in Cuomo's New York.

But, it's no worse than the flu right? That's what all the deniers keep telling us?

Well, the regular flu killed 80,000 Americans last winter.  

Most were over age 65 and had comorbid conditions.

It kills millions worldwide.  No epidemic.  No lockdowns.  No destruction of the middle class and the economy.

Just a fact of life we've dealt with for centuries until the MSM decided to fearmonger folks into cooperating with martial law and a communist takeover.

Austenbosten, my husband and I think we've already had it.

At the end of December he fell violently sick with chills, fever, diarrhea--the whole flu thing, but this felt weird and was worse than anything he'd experienced. He was shaking visibly and I pumped him full of vitamin C, about fifteen grams over his usual daily dose of six. (We're both in our sixties and diabetic.) The illness lasted about 24 hours and went as suddenly as it came. But he was completely exhausted and remained that way for a week.

I got only the exhaustion but had already increased my C. Mine too lasted a week.

It was about a month or so ago that Zedta posted a list of C-19 symptoms. They matched exactly.

I probably already had it too, worst cold in my life. However, that doesn't mean my anecdotal evidence dismisses the corpus of what medical experts have put together.

If I was a prisoner having never seen the outdoors, and one day I decided to walk outside and look up to see the overcast heavens and I then declared the sky to be grey, doesn't make it so. The sky is blue. Just because phenomenologically I experienced it to be grey, doesn't mean the sky is indeed of grey color.
