ALBANY, N.Y. (WIVB) — A new report from the New York Times alleges that governor Cuomo and his top aides spent several months hiding the number of deaths inside nursing homes.
The report came out Wednesday.
The article says the governor’s aides prevented health officials, including the state health commissioner, from releasing that number. An attorney for Cuomo told the Times the governor’s aides were never convinced that the numbers were accurate.
