@rcrsv The best hope for you is: anytime you find yourself looking in the mirror, take a moment and take a deep breath, lift your head and look into your own eyes, and repeat: “remember how dumb you are” at least 5 times before you get on with your day
At least they were able to kill more people and continue the scaremongering train for Covid.
Unfortunately the scaremongering is running out of steam and Big Pharma won't be able to shove a vaccine down the throat of the masses.
More fear coming soon! https://t.co/MlOyE8lgVi
RT @boriquagato: first, they deny it.
then, they call you a nutter.
but finally, the mainstream media realize what actually turned NY into the number one covid hotspot on earth: bad policy.
cuomo's day is coming.
he has a shocking amount to answer for.
Wow, that Cuomo guy has major blood on his hands. And to think the media were portraying him as a hero, the rational antithesis of Trump. Cuomo should be tried and executed for mass murder. He sent Covid-19 patients to the absolute worst place you could think of, where they could mass infect the most vulnerable. 5,000 dead are because of him.
“The state has failed to protect the lives of the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Ron Kim, a Democratic member of the state Assembly whose Queens district has seen many nursing-home deaths. “The fact we maintained and pushed Covid-positive patients into facilities that were not equipped to handle them, it was a fatal error.”
Is this true? I was having a political argument with someone, and I was calling Cuomo a hero vs Trump. Then they pointed me to this article. Cuomo sent COVID-19 patients to nursing homes, the absolutely worst place you could send them to. That would explain your insane death tolls.
Here in New Zealand we have 21 dead for a population of 5 million, all over 60 years old, and most of them from one elderly dementia rest home. So like everybody is wondering what happened in New York, since Covid-19 ended up not a big deal over here and we have ended our lockdown (I can go to the gym, restaurant, taekwando class, even a brothel atm).
Paywalled site. Here is the partial text, as recommended I post by the automoderator. It's like a 10,000 word report so I posted the first 1,000 words.
>New York Sent Recovering Coronavirus Patients to Nursing Homes: ‘It Was a Fatal Error’
>The state reversed its policy after mounting criticism and deaths. The mandate is part of broader scrutiny of weaknesses at long-term care facilities that have made them hot spots for Covid-19.
>In late March, Dottie Hickey got a call from Luxor Nursing & Rehabilitation at Mills Pond, the nursing home where her sister lived. The 79-year-old was being moved to make space for incoming hospital patients recovering from coronavirus. Ms. Hickey was told the St. James, N.Y., facility had no choice but to take in these patients under a new state policy.
>Ms. Hickey said that after a few days she struggled to reach staff for updates on her sister, and after repeated calls, one employee told her why. The nursing home was overwhelmed with cases of Covid-19, the illness caused by the virus.
>Luxor Nursing & Rehabilitation had no confirmed coronavirus cases before the patients moved in, and can’t say if any arrived while still infectious, a spokesman said. But he added: Luxor “would not have accepted \[the patients\] without this directive.”
>After mounting criticism and thousands of deaths in New York nursing homes—including several individual facilities that have lost more than 50 residents—the state on Sunday [reversed the mandate](https://www.wsj.com/articles/new-york-mandates-nursing-homes-take-covid-19-patients-discharged-from-hospitals-11585228215?mod=article_inline), which said nursing homes couldn’t refuse to accept patients from hospitals who had been diagnosed with Covid-19. New York now says hospitals can send patients to nursing homes only if they have tested negative for the virus.
>The policy before the U-turn is one of [several decisions the state made that are now coming under fire](https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-government-drafts-guidelines-for-reopening-hard-hit-nursing-homes-11589147557?mod=article_inline), as New York’s death toll tied to nursing homes rises, to 5,398 presumed and confirmed fatalities as of May 12, more than any other state and a significant part of New York’s total deaths.
>“The state has failed to protect the lives of the most vulnerable members of our community,” said Ron Kim, a Democratic member of the state Assembly whose Queens district has seen many nursing-home deaths. “The fact we maintained and pushed Covid-positive patients into facilities that were not equipped to handle them, it was a fatal error.”

They're also putting ppl on packed planes and flying them all over. A surgeon said he got the virus on a packed plane through his eyes. Why are these planes allowed to board and deplane without mandatory quarantine? Are these ppl trying to spread it?
WHAT the HE - DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS is WRONG with New York?
“Ms.Hickey said that after a few days she struggled to reach staff for updates on her sister, and after repeated calls, one employee told her why. The nursing home was overwhelmed with cases of Covid-19, the illness caused by the virus.
Luxor Nursing & Rehabilitation had no confirmed coronavirus cases before the patients moved in, and can’t say if any arrived while still infectious, a spokesman said. But he added: Luxor ‘would not have accepted [the patients] without this directive.’ “
From Bucks Co, can confirm, for the past few weeks almost all of our new cases have been in nursing homes. Only one death *hasn’t* been in a nursing home.
On a side note, our secretary of health moved her own mother out of her nursing home and into the hershey lodge. I got a good chuckle out of that. Must be nice to be able to afford moving your mother into a resort hotel while thousands of other seniors die because of a decision that you were a part of.
Jesus christ. That's not just morally wrong that's admitting your family is above others, that secretary knows in this country it's perfectly acceptable to use the knowledge you have as an official to help yourself. There's no repercussions to this
