Grandma-Killer Cuomo’s Top Aide Confesses State Covered Up Nursing Home Death Toll; CDC Declares It Is 'Critical' for Schools to Reopen and Stay Open, and other C-Virus Updates

Grandma-Killer Cuomo’s Top Aide Confesses State Covered Up Nursing Home Death Toll:
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide admitted the state’s top office purposefully hid the nursing home COVID-19 death toll out of fear of a federal investigation, The New York Post reported on Thursday evening.
Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa confessed the coverup in a virtual meeting with state Democrat leaders, claiming Cuomo’s administration “froze” when they discovered the potential of a federal investigation and prosecution into their controversial and deadly COVID-19 policy. That policy sent more than 9,000 elderly patients recovering from the virus back to their care facilities from hospitals, many while still contagious.
The order, which extended for more than a month, led to the infection of thousands of vulnerable people in close quarters with contagious co-residents. These thousands of nursing home infections and deaths were concerning to the families of the patients such as Fox News’s Janice Dean, who repeatedly questioned and demanded answers about the state’s policy to count only COVID-19 deaths that occurred at the care facilities and ignore the deaths of residents who contracted the virus in their nursing home but later died in the hospital. --->READ MORE HERE
CDC Declares It Is 'Critical' for Schools to Reopen and Stay Open:
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urge that schools open, many teachers unions are saying no.
“Amidst a global pandemic, the likes of which none of us has ever seen, the school district is hellbent on forcing thousands of educators into unsafe school buildings held together, in some places quite literally, by duct tape,” Philadelphia Federation of Teachers President Jerry T. Jordan said in response to his city’s push to reopen buildings that have been closed for about a year, The Washington Post reported.
Teachers there took to the streets in protest rather than go back to the classroom, according to Bloomberg.
But the CDC, in a 35-page report that spells out how schools can be made safe, says opening them up should be a priority.
“It is critical for schools to open as safely and as soon as possible, and remain open, to achieve the benefits of in-person learning and key support services. To enable schools to open safely and remain open, it is important to adopt and consistently implement actions to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2 both in schools and in the community,” the CDC wrote in the document issued Friday. --->READ MORE HERE
