    Gov. Tom Wolf and health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine on Wednesday expanded on their previous order that everyone must wear masks inside businesses, saying masks are now required whenever anyone leaves home. It takes effect immediately. “This mask-wearing order is essential to stopping the recent increase in COVID-19 cases we have seen in Pennsylvania,” Wolf said. “Those hot spots can be traced to situations where Pennsylvanians were not wearing masks or practicing social distancing – two practices that must be adhered to if we want to maintain the freedoms we have in place under our reopening.” Wolf cited the Disease...

    In “Here is New York,” a 1949 love letter to his adopted home, author E.B. White declared it a miracle that the city managed to exist at all. “The whole thing is implausible,” he wrote. “Every time the residents brush their teeth, millions of gallons of water must be drawn from the Catskills and the hills of Westchester.”

    Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports. The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases – around 282,000 – have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths – or 54,000 deaths – have come from the same, the New York Times reported. The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The...

  • Nursing homes represent more than 1 in 4 COVID-19 deaths in U.S.

    Nursing home residents account for nearly 1 in 10 of all the coronavirus cases in the United States and more than a quarter of the deaths, according to an Associated Press analysis of government data released Thursday. As federal data collection becomes more robust, a clearer picture is emerging of the ravages of COVID-19 in nursing homes. About 1.4 million older and medically frail people live in such facilities, a tiny share of the American population that has borne a crushing burden from the pandemic. Most residents have been in lockdown since early March, isolated from families and friends, even...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Monday denied his office was at fault for the coronavirus deaths of more than 6,000 nursing home residents in the state, calling such accusations a "political charade." Cuomo defended his office's response to the pandemic during an interview with MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle. “Yes, we had more people die in nursing homes than anywhere else, because we had more people die, because the federal government missed the boat and never told us this virus was coming from Europe and not from China,” Cuomo said. “And January, February, March, before they did the European travel...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday fired back at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s threat to shut down Manhattan again if the city didn’t enforce social-distancing better — saying through a rep that “imprisoning people” isn’t the answer. “We must balance safety with people’s need to reopen their businesses,” a City Hall spokeswoman said in an e-mail. “We had social distancing ambassadors out all weekend distributing masks and encouraging people to disperse after making their purchases. “These businesses are allowed to be open per the Governor’s guidelines and we don’t believe imprisoning people or taking away their livelihood is the answer.”

    Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and cabinet members of his health and human services agencies collectively condemned the Trump Administration’s revoking of protections for equal access to healthcare because of their sexual orientation or gender identity in a Sunday press release. The Obama-era Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) previously secured the right. “This rule flies in the face of every policy and protection my administration has put in place,” Wolf said. Wolf said the action will put the LGBTQ community at greater risk and is “especially egregious” since it came during a pandemic and on the anniversary of the...

    For no good reason, they’re placed on breathing ventilators. They’re sedated, to keep them from moving around and feeling the discomfort and pain of the invasive intubation. But these patients are HEAVILY sedated for long periods. As much as a MONTH. Completely cut off from the outside world, they never wake up. This is no mystery. Any medical professional, doctor or nurse, WOULD KNOW DEATH IS THE INEVITABLE OUTCOME. It’s a protocol for killing. What about the doctors and nurses inside the Elmhurst Hospital? What do they have to say? Who set up the protocol of death? Why are these...

    Recently, Gov. Andrew Cuomo used one of his daily news briefings to attack me. He’s been doing that a lot lately. And again, he begged for a bailout from the federal government to fund his years of fiscal mismanagement. He argued that his state gives more to the federal government than it gets in return and that Florida gets more than it pays in. Therefore, Floridians should be sympathetic to his demand for a bailout. There is just one problem with the governor’s line of argument: It’s a bald-faced lie. The Empire State doesn’t give more money to the federal...

    Thousands of New Yorkers tune into Gov. Cuomo’s afternoon coronavirus briefings each day for vital updates on how to go on with their lives. When will my kids go back to school? What month can my store reopen? Is it safe to take the subway to my job? We generally end the hour with no more answers than when we started. That pitiful trend continued Thursday, when Cuomo added Chris Rock and Rosie Perez to his task force. Not Dr. Chris Rock of Mt. Sinai and famed epidemiologist Rosie Perez. The experts Cuomo has chosen are the stars of “Down...

"So Lancet, with egg on its face, a renowned journal, is suddenly withdrawing this study," Siegel noted during an appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" A database by Surgisphere Corp. of Chicago was used in an observational study of nearly 100,000 patients that appeared May 22 in The Lancet, an influential medical journal. The study tied the malaria drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to a higher risk of death in hospitalized patients with the virus. The validity...

    New York City may have reached a major milestone in its battle against coronavirus as no new deaths were reported between Tuesday and Wednesday. According to preliminary data from the city's health department, zero additional deaths were confirmed within a 24-hour period between those two days. Officials cautioned that it's still possible that the number could be upgraded due to lag times in reporting, and because the three probable coronavirus deaths during that period are still under investigation.
