WSJ: Cuomo and de Blasio contributed to coronavirus crisis in New York

A recent Wall Street Journal report confirmed what many of us already knew: New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has been a major contributor to the coronavirus crisis in his state. 

Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) have not been held to account for their catastrophic policy decisions that contributed to the worst coronavirus outbreak in the nation, but their stars are beginning to fall.

Here are Cuomo and de Blasio’s biggest failures, according to the Journal:

  • Improper patient transfers. Some patients were too sick to have been transferred between hospitals. Squabbling between the Cuomo and de Blasio administrations contributed to an uncoordinated effort.

  • Insufficient isolation protocols. Hospitals often mixed infected patients with the uninfected early on, and the virus spread to non-Covid-19 units.

  • Inadequate staff planning. Hospitals added hundreds of intensive-care beds but not always enough trained staff, leading to improper treatments and overlooked patients dying alone.

  • Mixed messages. State, city government and hospital officials kept shifting guidelines about when exposed and ill front-line workers should return to work.

  • Overreliance on government sources for key equipment. Hospitals turned to the state and federal government for hundreds of ventilators, but many were faulty or inadequate.

  • Procurement-planning gaps. While leaders focused attention on procuring ventilators, hospitals didn’t always provide for adequate supplies of critical resources including oxygen, vital-signs monitors and dialysis machines.

  • Incomplete staff-protection policies. Many hospitals provided staff with insufficient protective equipment and testing.

Finally, one of Cuomo’s biggest failures — one that has been eclipsed by the nationwide protests — is that he mandated nursing homes take COVID-19 positive patients, resulting in thousands of preventable deaths.

“Appallingly, Cuomo has stood by the decisions, even after repealing the executive order in May. “What is justice? Who can we prosecute for those deaths? Nobody,” Cuomo said during a May 17 press conference. “Nobody. Mother nature. God. Where did this virus come from? People are going to die by this virus. That is the truth.”

    1. Yes he is . When my mother was in a nursing home family was not allowed to visit if flu or some other contagious disease was going around. I liked him until he made this awful division.

    2. He is evil and showed not an ounce of empathy or caring toward the elderly or their families. He is evil and needs to be sent to jail for murder

  1. Yes Arlene, your governor is an idiot. But my governor ( PRICKster ) is bigger bigger idiot, just put em side by side. They both need to be in prison.

    1. Yes! You’re right! I’m glad someone is finally mentioning The Prick(ster) after all the noise about Cuomo and the stupid fk in California. (And the Chicago “mayor” is a foul-mouthed ignorant joke.)

  2. WILL DEMONCRATS AND LIBERALS EVER GET SMART AND VOTE RIGHT? THEY WILL BE THE FIRST TO CRY WHEN THEY LOSE ALL THEIR RIGHTS TO COMMUNIST DEMONCRATS WHO FOOL THEM BY CALLING COMMUNIST, SOCIALIST. LIKE SWEDEN WHEN WOMEN ARE ASSAULTED AND RAPED THERE ARE NO POLICE TO CALL FOR HELP. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT COMMUNIST SOCIALIST WANT FOR AMERICA. ESPECIALLY SHARIAH LAW. MUSLIMS WANT YOU TO THINK ISLAM IS PEACEFUL AND GIVES
    WOMEN RIGHTS. BOTH ARE LIES. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU BELIEVE PIGS FLY. FIRST, IF AMERICA STINKS MOVE TO SWEDEN, OR IRAN , OR COMMUNIST CHINA. SEE HOW IT IS TO LIVE THERE. GET OUT OF AMERICA. AND BY THE WAY SANCTUARY STATES IF YOU DO T WANT TRUMP ON PRESIDENTIAL BALLOTS THEN THE MAJORITY PATRIOTS WANT CALIFORNIA OUT OF OUR AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. YOU F UP YOUR STATES AND WHEN YOUR ILLEGALS AND FELONS YOU LET OUT OF PRISON BURN DOWN YOUR CITIES YOU BEG FOR MONEY FROM THE PEOPLE YOU STOP FROM WORKING AND GOING TO CHURCH. I SAY KEEP COMMUNISTS (SOCIALISTS) ILLEGAL BALLOT COUNTING SANCTUARY STATES OUT OF OUR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. SINCE WHEN DO LAW BREAKING EVIL COMMUNISTS RUN THIS COUNTRY? BERNIE SANDERS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO TOLD THE TRUTH THAT HE WAS COMMUNIST YOU SEE WHAT THEY DID TO HIM. THEIR COMMUNIST TO CANT YOU SEE HOW THE COMMUNISTS CAME TO COMMUNIST CHINA’S SIDE WHEN THEY SPREAD COVID+19 TO AMERICA AND THEN COMMUNIST CHINA SHUTDOWN THEIR AIRPORTS FROM ANY COVID-19 COMING BACK TO THEM AND KILLING DOCTORS WHO TRIED TO WARN OTHERS OF COVID-19?

WHEN THERE IS NOONE YO CALL WHEN RAPES AND MURDERS AAND BURGLARIES ARE COMMITTED THATS WHEN. TOO LATE GAME OVER.

  3. Okay New Yorkers now you know why the Founders put the 2nd Amendment into the Bill of Rights Go after DeBlasio and Cuomo

  4. Crazy to send virus patients to nursing homes. If there. Is something contagious going around my local nursing home will not let even well family visit. I guess we love and respect our old folks more than the governor does.

  5. Really surprised Cuomo has not blamed it all on Trump he does everything else just like the remainder of democrat controlled cities including my home state if Ga. If everything is going well it is because of democrat policies however if anything ever goes wrong it’s Trump’s fault great logic, just made up of lies.

  6. These two Puppet Politicians were following orders from the Powers behind the Curtains. They were told to increase the COVID 19 numbers of death by any means necessary. Trump sent a Ship Hospital that was mostly empty during its stay, plus the Central Park Installations for the same purpose which eventually were kicked out of the City by the NY Demoncrats Politicians who were also following orders!
