New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who presided over a COVID-19 nursing home policy that may have resulted in thousands of coronavirus-related deaths among the elderly, warned New York’s unvaccinated and vaccine-hesitant residents that they could kill their grandmothers if they continue to refuse to get a COVID-19 shot.
‘During a press conference on Monday, Cuomo — who is facing down a nursing home scandal and a cornucopia of sexual harassment allegations — said that the state was targeting the ‘youthful’ and the ‘doubtful’ to get the COVID-19 vaccine,” per Fox News. “Cuomo said that there is ‘an attitude’ among the unvaccinated that they believe ‘they’ll be fine’ and warned that unvaccinated people could have a ‘lingering consequence’ of COVID-19.”
“There is an attitude of ‘they’ll be fine, why should they take the vaccine,’” Cuomo said in his presser. “Maybe you will get a long haul syndrome, that we’re really not sure what it is yet, but a lingering consequence of COVID.”
