Judge Rules NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo Health Dept. Illegally Withheld COVID Nursing Home Death Toll

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Health Department broke the law by refusing to provide a government watchdog group with the total nursing home death toll from COVID-19, a judge ruled Wednesday. The legal smackdown came just days after an attorney general’s report revealed that the Cuomo administration misled the public about the total number of nursing home residents killed by the coronavirus by only releasing the numbers of those who died in nursing homes, not those who later died in hospitals.
