ALBANY – A new report is shedding light on how long Governor Andrew Cuomo hid COVID-19 related nursing home deaths in New York.








The New York Times reports the governor and his top aides spent several months hiding the number of deaths inside nursing homes.

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.

More than 15,000 nursing home residents in New York State died from COVID-19.















An investigation by the U.S. Justice Department is looking into Cuomo’s handling of nursing home deaths.

There is also a State Assembly impeachment committee who is questioning his handling of the pandemic as well.
