The ABC talk show co-host praises Gov. Cuomo's coronavirus response: 'Right' in all early efforts

The ABC talk show co-host Sunny Hostin praised New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's response to the coronavirus, saying he was "just right on" in the early stages of the pandemic. "I think people in New York took it very seriously," she said, "because we were the epicenter." Hostin's comments came amid widespread criticism of Cuomo's requirement that New York nursing homes accept patients who tested positive for the coronavirus – something many said was the cause for many deaths among the elderly. New York's government recently released a report on the issue that garnered significant backlash as it found no strong link between Cuomo's nursing homes order and some of the nation's deadliest nursing home outbreaks. The report says the virus’ rampant run through New York nursing homes was propelled by the 37,500 nursing home workers who became infected between mid-March and early June and unknowingly passed the virus on.
