The New York Post recently reported that New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo "callously" dismissed an investigative report, from the state’s Democratic Attorney General Letitia James, which identified 4,032 nursing-home residents who died from COVID-19, but who were not counted in the official Department of Health totals.

With stunningly immorality, Gov. Cuomo dismissed the attorney general’s explosive findings:

"Who cares if they died in the hospital or a nursing home? They died."

Will Cuomo also brush off, as an insignificant detail, that 44,000 more New Yorkers died from all causes in 2020, than in 2019?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has documented that 201,000 New Yorkers died in 2020, a catastrophic 28% increase from the 157,000 in 2019.

The CDC separately counts 119,000 deaths in NY State outside New York City, and another 82,000 deaths in the Big Apple.

But, interestingly, this highly-politicized, once-great federal health agency does not provide, on its "Provisional COVID Deaths" website, total deaths for New York State, as it does for the other 49 states.

American deaths from all causes increased by 500,000, or 17%, from 2.86 million in 2019 to 3.36 million in 2020.

While NY’s 19.3 million residents last year represented only 5.8% of nation’s 331 million, the state’s 44,000 additional deaths account for an abominable 8.8% of the nation’s grim increase.

Moreover, New York City, run by the congenitally incompetent Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, suffered 82,000 of the 201,000 deaths in NY State in 2020. This is a mind-boggling 27,000 more deaths, or 49%, than the approximately 55,000 fatalities in 2019.

NYC’s 27,000 additional deaths last year account for 5.4% of the nation’s 500,000 increase.

But NYC’s 8.3 million residents are only 2.5% of America’ 331 million people.

Deaths from all causes are the best indicator of the ravages of the epidemic, as the COVID deaths totals, which have been disseminated by Democratic-run cities, states and the CDC, are incorrigibly unreliable.

For example, the official NY State COVID Tracker website, on Feb. 23, 2021, reported 38,031 deaths from this disease, as of the previous afternoon.

On Feb. 24, the CDC reported, if you did the math, 46,612 "Provisional COVID Deaths" throughout NY State.

While Cuomo’s and De Blasio’s abhorrent failures in battling the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic have finally been recognized by many New Yorkers, Florida, under the competent Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, suffered 36,000 more deaths from all causes, or 17%, from 207,000 in 2019 to 243,000 in 2020.

Last year, Florida’s population of 21.7 million was 2.4 million more than New York’s 19.3 million.

Moreover, Florida had 4.5 million residents 65 years of age and older, or 1.2 million more than NY’s 3.3 million.

At least another 1 million senior "Snow Birds," who hail from the Northeast, Midwest, Canada and Europe, annually winter in the Sunshine State.

Roughly 75% of America’s 3,360,000 deaths last year occurred among people 65 years of age and older.

Thus, Florida, based on the data with at least 5.5 million senior citizens, living there either full-time or seasonally, has very successfully fought the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic.

Additionally, Gov. Cuomo has wrecked NY’s economy, which lost more than 1 million jobs last year. In Dec. 2020, New York had the 45th highest unemployment rate, at 8.2%, among the 50 states.

The national average was 6.7%, and Florida’s was 6.1%

Thirdly, Cuomo’s scandalous micro-managing of NY’s COVID vaccination program has led to thousands of avoidable deaths over the last several months.

Florida’s deaths from all causes increased from 19,000 in Nov. 2020 to 23,000 in Jan. 2021, or 15%.

Over these same two months, New York’s deaths soared from 13,000 to 19,000, or 46%.

Between Nov. 2020 and Jan. 2021, America’s deaths from all causes inched up from 292,000 to 301,000, or 3%.

In conclusion, 19.3 million deeply-traumatized New Yorkers will continue to suffer unnecessary deaths, and economic and social devastation, each day that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio remain in office.
