Dozens of protesters filled a casket placed outside of a Brooklyn nursing home with thousands of copies of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new book on the coronavirus.
About 6,500 copies of American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic filled the silver casket, representing the number of coronavirus deaths in nursing homes reported in the state. Protesters said the figure is likely higher, however, and are demanding answers, according to the New York Post.
“My mother-in-law got COVID in an elder-care facility but died in a hospital, [so] her number does not count’’ in New York’s nursing home total on deaths, said Fox News’s Janice Dean.
