On July 24, 2020, Gov. Andrew Cuomo was asked about criticism of his handling of COVID-19 in nursing homes. His response:
"I believe it is a political issue. I think it’s The New York Post, I think it’s Michael Goodwin, I think it’s Bob McManus, I think it’s Fox TV. I think it is all politically motivated.If anybody looked at the facts, they would know that it was wholly absurd on its face. People died in nursing homes. That’s very unfortunate. Just on the top line, we are number 35th in the nation in percentage of deaths in nursing homes. Go talk to 34 other states first. Go talk to the Republican states now. Florida, Texas, Arizona. Ask them what is happening in nursing homes. It’s all politics."
We now know why New York was 35th in the nation — Cuomo was engaged in a criminal coverup to hide the true numbers.
CUOMO'S SCANDALS REVEAL TO NATION THE GOVERNOR NEW YORKERS KNOW
That same month, state health officials were prepared to say that nearly 10,000 nursing home residents had died of coronavirus, the Wall Street Journal reports. But Cuomo and his aides scrubbed that number out of the report, realizing that it would destroy his entire facade of competent leadership.

Beset with investigations over nursing homes and sexual harassment, Gov. Cuomo is turning to his regular responses: Bullying, filibustering, "wait for the inquiry." He swears he’s innocent.
But he’s proven himself a liar over and over again. How can any New Yorker ever believe a word he says?

Lava from Guatemalas Pacaya volcano threatens towns
EL PATROCINIO, Guatemala (AP) — Residents of small communities living around Guatemala’s Pacaya volcano wake each day wondering if the lava will reach their homes.
A lava flow descending the volcano has advanced between El Patrocinio and San José el Rodeo. In the case of the latter, the lava has advanced to within two and half blocks of the outermost homes.
Emma Quezada, a 38-year-old homemaker in one of those houses, has lived there her entire life and said she’s used to the volcanic activity. Still, this time she’s afraid.
“These last three days the lava stopped; we hope it stays there,” Quezada said.
Local authorities had spoken to residents about moving the community to another location some 62 miles (100 kilometers) away, but without the space they have now, she said.
“As if you’re going to go from here to a little piece of land!” she said. “Maybe we don’t have a great thing here, but we live in blessed peace, we don’t face any other danger, not even thieves… The options they give you don’t compare with what we have here.”
The Pacaya volcano rises some 8,372 feet (2,552 meters) between the departments of Guatemala and Escuintla south of the capital. It’s a popular tourist destination and 21 communities surround it.
In early February, a chasm opened in one of the volcano’s flanks and lava began to flow, now stretching at least three miles (5 kilometers). Meanwhile ash and gases spewed from its crater.
Even if the lava doesn’t reach their homes, the ash has damaged their corn crops and the pastures where their cows graze.
El Rodeo is home to 57 families, some 350 people, said Juventino Pineda, president of the Urban and Rural Development Community Council.
Pineda, 67, can recall various eruptions during his lifetime. “One of the worst was 1962, I was a child and lava also came out of a fissure in the volcano, that time it was 20 kilometers of lava,” he said.
This time, Pineda says “we believe that at least 50% of the homes in the community would be destroyed because of the lava’s path.” There is an evacuation plan if the situation worsens.
“At night, when the volcano erupts, everything turns red, everything shines, it looks like day,” Pineda said.
Approaching the lava you can feel the ambient temperature rise. There’s a light sulfur smell and you can hear a crunching.
“It’s important to know that we need help, maybe someone can help us on the international level,” Pineda said.
