Kathy Hochul, who has taken over from Cuomo, updates the number of deaths and promises a “new era of transparency”. 12,000 more than previously reported covid deaths in upstate New York. The figure, which brings the total to almost 55,400 deaths, was released today on the first day of work of the new governor, Kathy Hochul, who succeeded Mario Cuomo. Interviewed by MSNBC, Hochul promised a “new era of transparency”. Cuomo resigned following a series of sexual harassment allegations. But he was also indicted for hiding the true data of covid deaths in the state’s retirement homes. The official figure of the total deaths released on Monday was 43,400 deaths. Now the bill has been updated based on the death certificates presented to the CDCs (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
