Nearly a year ago, we began paying close attention to disturbing news coming out of New York, which rapidly became *the* national epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States as well as the focal point for its spread. One story that stood out to us from the moment it broke in April 2020 was the tragedy of deadly COVID infections spreading without constraint in New York's nursing homes.

We were taken enough by that developing scandal to begin appending regular updates to our original analysis of its cause. It's a scandal we've kept up with in the year since.

But now, with so many scandals surrounding Governor Cuomo and members of his administration in New York causing news coverage to explode, we've found that approach to documenting New York's COVID nursing homes deaths scandal is less than optimal.

In response, we've created a new blog dedicated to following the progression of Governor Cuomo's unfolding nursing homes deaths scandal: The Governor Who Kills Grandmas?

In addition to providing a timeline of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's nursing home scandals, we've also picked up related stories involving Governor Cuomo's other scandals and other governor's COVID nursing home scandals.

Other Timelines of Governor Cuomo's Scandals

While we've actively maintained a timeline of Governor Cuomo's nursing home scandals among the longest, we're no longer the only ones providing that service. Here are several of the others:

Why point to the timeline competition? Our philosophy in developing the Cuomo Nursing Home Scandal Timeline has been to provide a representative sample of news coverage and analysis with a primary focus on Governor Cuomo's COVID nursing home death scandals. We also periodically feature news and analysis involving similar scandals developing in several other states, such as Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and now Washington.

Other outlets are choosing to focus on other scandalous aspects of Governor Cuomo's conduct in office, where the different timelines overlap and complement each other.

As for the timelines we've linked above, please note some big differences in the dates from which the various timelines start. Those that start at 1 March 2020 begin with the first confirmed SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infected detected in New York. We started our coverage from 7 March 2020, when Governor Cuomo declared a state of emergency in New York. Others starting later than March 2020 are likely not focused on the origins of the Cuomo administration's deadly nursing home scandals.

We're also happy to report our effort in developing a reliable timeline is informing the reporting now being done by several major news media outlets. Having a resource that links to contemporary news reporting and analysis has proven its worth.

Finally, if you click on over to the new blog, you'll find an article posted on 15 March 2021 that's remarkably similar to the latter half of this one!
