Governor Cuomo blamed the nursing home staff who were sick for infecting residents



Governor Cuomo blamed the nursing home staff who were sick for infecting residents

Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday blamed sick nursing home staff for infecting residents at the facility – and doubled a controversial state order that banned facilities for turning patients who were positive for the corona virus, saying, “That was not a mistake.”

“No, it’s not a mistake because … You don’t want to leave senior citizens in the hospital for two weeks if you don’t need to be in a hospital bed for two weeks,” Cuomo told his MSNBC. The Department of Health’s mandate was extensively investigated on March 25, which may have triggered more than 6,000 confirmed and estimated COVID-19 deaths in New York.

The governor added, “When someone is transferred after nine or 10 days, they are no longer contagious and all the data says, the reason you have an infection in a nursing home is because the staff is carrying the infection.”

“You see communities that have a high infection rate overall – they are communities that have a high infection rate – so staff are infected. They come to work and they carry infections. “

Cuomo, who in recent weeks blamed political parties for criticizing his handling in nursing homes during the pandemic – and even the New York Post for exposing the direction of the scandal – shows how the country recently requires testing the coronavirus virus for all nursing homes. staff twice a week.

The mandate was revised on June 10, following industry pressure and the Post reported that nursing homes had a significant delay in receiving staff tests – results or not getting them at all – and now the facility only needs to test staff once a week if their county has entered Phase Two of the opening plan back in the Empire Country.

“But it was very difficult,” Cuomo insisted on Tuesday. “All you need is one person – an AC repairman, a shipping officer, and once a virus enters a nursing home, it burns through dry grass.

“That’s where the virus preys,” Cuomo said, referring to nursing homes. “But in the case of learning lessons, see there will be books written about lessons learned.”

However, the country’s Ministry of Health permits nurses and other staff who test positive, but show no symptoms, for coronavirus to continue treating COVID-19 patients in nursing homes until the end of April.

DOH did not reverse the order until The Post exclusively reported sick staff were allowed to work and treat residents in nursing homes where more than a dozen died after the outbreak.

Staff must quarantine at home for 14 days before returning to work, according to the edited state guidelines issued April 29.

Cuomo had previously insisted that “it is not our job” to provide private nursing homes damaged by the coronavirus virus.

In May, Cuomo partially canceled a March 25 state order, mandating that patients in New York hospitals must now test negatively for the corona virus before they can be returned to a nursing home.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
