“If a hospital determined a patient who needed nursing home care was medically stable, the home had to accept them, even if they had been treated for COVID-19...New York was the only state in the nation that barred testing of those being placed or returning to nursing homes.” 1/3
Of course, the right wing meme factories of The New Yorker and ProPublica. https://twitter.com/aslavitt/status/1282838825614692352
The nursing home meme was generally spread by people whose principal skill is retweeting unread click bait. I ran the agency the Agency that oversaw nursing home safety & have been talking about this on TV, in writing & with governors. You can watch. 9/ https://youtu.be/FPQwAiI0-io
If @Andrew Cuomo was indeed “fully present” than what he did - which is already on the public record - can only rightly be called criminal. https://twitter.com/aslavitt/status/1282838810150219779
No, it’s literally what the “flatten the curve” graphs said would happen if you let a virus burn through a whole city. Hospitals overloaded, needless deaths, and then fewer cases. Slavitt has been one of the biggest villains in the misinformation front during this whole ordeal.

How about everyone no matter where they are on the American political system can at least agree that a totalitarian foreign state that is asserting itself over powerless minorities should be opposed?
The NBA bans you, the fan, from putting #freehongkong on customized league jerseys even as they allow players to wear customized jerseys.
Thousands of New York seniors have ALREADY died because of Cuomo’s failed decision making and yet @CBS News isn’t interested, apparently.
"Trump’s COVID scandal makes what Nixon did at Watergate look innocent. Nobody died in the Watergate scandal. Thousands of people are going to die in this COVID scandal." -Gov. Cuomo https://cbsn.ws/2Cw8ZpA
