New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) acknowledged Wednesday that an additional 12,000 COVID-19 deaths occurred during the Cuomo administration than were previously reported by the state.
The update brings New York’s COVID-19 total death toll from 43,400 to 55,400, an increase of more than 25% since Monday’s data, according to the Associated Press. Former Governor Andrew Cuomo, who stepped down Monday, had been criticized for his lack of transparency on the state’s COVID-19 deaths and his pandemic-era policies.

NY POST, TRUE NUMBERS RELEASED....many thanks to the Empire Center:
Government watchdog groups applauded Hochul’s move.
“It’s a good first step by Hochul,” said Bill Hammond, a health care policy expert at the conservative-leaning think tank The Empire Center, which aggressively pressed state officials over their handling of nursing home safety measures during the pandemic.
“The higher COVID death totally is significantly important,” he added. “She’s acknowledging how bad things got. She’s not sugarcoating the problem. Cuomo was trying to keep the numbers as low as he could.”
The new state figures show the number COVID-related deaths in New York State as of Tuesday totaled 55,395.
It’s a significant jump from the 43,415 that would have been reported under the old system, which only tallied deaths in hospitals, nursing homes and adult care facilities.
MAUREEN CALLAHAN, CUOMOS--AND OTHER PRIVILEGED MEN---HAVE FINALLY OUTDONE THEMSELVES; OBAMA AND DAMON TOO
My educated guess: No. Why would he? Cuomo the Younger is but one example of privileged, liberal men, high on their own self-regard, who have really outdone themselves this week.
Look at our disgraced governor Andrew. The deluge of credible accusations leveled against him months ago — truly despicable stuff — wasn’t enough to shame him from office. (Nor were the nursing home deaths he covered up, but that’s another scandal.) MORE AT https://nypost.com/2021/08/03/the-cuomo-brothers-and-other-privileged-liberals-have-outdone-themselves/
