He has yet to hold a press conference during a pandemic that has claimed more than 107,000 lives since his inauguration and more than 500,000 overall.

Andrew Cuomo influenced state health officials to remove data from a public report that showed coronavirus -related nursing-home deaths in the state had exceeded numbers previously acknowledged by the administration, a bombshell report says.
