A Ny Assemblyman Calls For Independent Probe Into Nursing Home Deaths Caused By Covid 19 In Ny

Assemblyman Phil Palmesano of the Southern Tier says there may be as many as 12,000 deaths linked to coronavirus in New York nursing homes.


Palmesano thinks the governor is hiding important information from the public and seeks answers into a March directive that forced coronavirus patients back to nursing homes.

The assemblyman insists new nursing home visitation rules are also problematic because insurance does not cover the cost of a COVID test.
