Re: In case you haven't noticed, democrats always lie

 As for nursing home deaths, in case you haven't noticed, Texas, California and Pennsylvania have long ago caught up with NY.  Florida, Illinois,  Michigan and Missouri aren't far behind.  The only reason Florida lags is because your golden boy, DeSantis is fugging the reporting of nursing home deaths so as not to look bad.

  By the way, Iowa and Minnesota are in the running and coming up fast.  On a nursing home resident per-capita basis, there are  42 other states that are ahead of NY, on nursing home deaths, most by a lot with Arkansas leading the way, 493 per 1000, almost half of all Arkansas's residents have died of Covid.  Florida is at 370 per 1000 residents, Texas at 368 per 1000 while NY is way back at 163 per 1000. 

NEW YORK (AP) — Riverdale Nursing Home in the Bronx appears, on paper, to have escaped the worst of the coronavirus pandemic, with an official state count of just four deaths in its 146-bed facility.

The truth, according to the home, is far worse: 21 dead, most transported to hospitals before they succumbed.

“It was a cascading effect,” administrator Emil Fuzayov recalled. “One after the other.”

New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there.
