A celebratory book Gov. Andrew Cuomo wrote about his own coronavirus response has had its promotion paused by the publisher due to the federal probe into the state’s handling of the coronavirus in nursing homes, a report said.
Top aides to the governor last summer successfully pushed health officials to leave out in a July report the number of nursing home residents who died of COVID-19 in hospitals, undercounting the true death toll at the time by roughly 3,500, the Wall Street Journal has reported.
Last month, amid the allegations, it was reported the Brooklyn-based US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York opened an investigation into the Cuomo’s administration’s handling of nursing homes amid the pandemic.
Crown Publishing Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Post.
