One day after the Governor’s order was enacted, on March 26, 2020, a woman called in his show. She is the medical director in a New York nursing home.
To her statement, Levin answered:
“If this is right, this is exactly the wrong thing that he’s doing,”

On March 25, 2020, the New York Department of Health ordered that:
“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is deemed medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 before admission or re-admission.”
During the recent few weeks, one controversy surfaced. Governor Anthony Cuomo is involved in a criminal by covering the accurate numbers of nursing home death due to COVID-19. He did it to avoid federal scrutiny.
Resulting from the affair, many reports emerged of Cuomo threatening politicians, including Ron Kin, because he spoke about it.
Also, Cuomo is facing sexual harassment allegations from his previous aides. Until today, seven women accused him of sexual harassment.
The entire situation reminds us of the one on March 26, 2020, when Elaine of Rochelle, New York, talked in Mark Levin show!

She called to warn the viewers that Cuomo ordered the nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients. While these people could still be contagious, they must be received by the nursing homes and stay among those with a long-term care population.
Levin couldn’t believe this and asked her: Are you serious?
Elaine explained that the NH previously accepted people from the hospitals, and they continued the individual care regimens from there.
In the beginning, maybe people couldn’t know the possible death rate, but on March 26, 2020, we all knew that older people are the vulnerable population.
Regarding this issue, Elaine explained:
“I’m looking at a directive from Andrew Cuomo and Howard Zucker dated March 25, that is ordering nursing homes… it says nursing homes must comply with the expedited receipt of residents from hospitals. They are deemed appropriate to go into the nursing homes by the hospitals, and we cannot discriminate based on the presence of COVID, and that’s it.”
Also, Elaine emphasized the lack of coordination. They can’t just follow orders by the Governor, if they aren’t ready for them and the price to be humans’ lives.
At that time, hospitals were full, so they had to send the patients somewhere to accept others.
According to Elaine, the National Association of Nursing Home Medical Directors considered the wrong Governor’s decision. It was unsafe and dangerous. Resulting from this decision, many people got infected and lost their lives!
“But you can’t get through to anybody down here. Uh, you can’t, you can’t talk to anybody. We don’t have support. There’s nobody coordinating the response at this level at it, certainly at the County level.” – Elaine’s closing words.
