But now the highly acclaimed ruler appears to be dropping from his base. Not just because of the sexual assault allegations. An investigation is also underway within his party for allegedly concealing the actual number of deaths related to the Coronavirus in the restrooms in New York State.
A report published in January found that more than 15,000 New Yorkers had died in nursing homes. Even then, the New York State Department of Health confirmed that there had been just over 8,500 deaths.
Cuomo later admitted that the reporting of deaths in the rest house was “delayed,” but claimed that the total number of deaths in New York State was always accurately reported. However, an American newspaper managed to grab a private conversation from a senior Como employee, in which he admitted that the true number of deaths in the remaining homes was kept secret because the data “could be used against us.”
