“Placing the blame squarely on the staff who care for our grandparents — when the state knowingly created COVID hotspots by forcing homes to accept COVID-positive patients — is a slap in the face to those who lost a loved one. Even a cursory review of ADMA’s dire warning to New York State makes it clear what really contributed to New York’s horrific death toll,” Reed said.In a response to Monday’s press conference, Stephen Hanse, the President of the NYS Health Facilities Association and the NYS Center for Assisted Living, said: “At the onset of the COVID-19 virus, nursing homes and assisted living facilities were not the top priority. The principal focus of policymakers was on bolstering hospital resources and ramping up hospital bed capacity. This strategy included the Department of Health’s March 25th Advisory… As we learn more about the COVID-19 virus every day, policymakers now know that the men and women residing in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are the most at risk to infection from the COVID-19 virus…”Several Republicans continue to call for an independent investigation into the coronavirus in nursing homes.

Andrew Cuomo to dodge responsibility for nursing home deaths, according to Rep. Tom Reed.Reed, who has been calling for an independent investigation into the deaths of thousands of New York nursing home residents, blasted Cuomo.“This is a blatant attempt by Governor Cuomo to sidestep an ounce of accountability,” Reed said. “As we’ve said all along, an independent investigation is needed to fully evaluate the impact of New York’s disastrous nursing home policies. Justice is not served when the individuals who were responsible for the state’s deadly edicts are reviewing their own conduct.”The report found that more than 37,000 nursing home workers were infected with the Coronavirus between March to early June. That accounts to about one in four nursing home staff. “The correlation is between what happened between community-wide infection and staff infection were the more prevalent reasons why there were fatalities in nursing homes. But it was not because of a directive on March 25,” said Northwell Health CEO Michael Dowling. That order required nursing homes to re-admit COVID positive patients unless they could not provide adequate care.“The March 25 guidance was not the driving factor in nursing home deaths,” NYS Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said.However, Reed places theWNYNewsNow File Image.blame squarely on Cuomo and his administration.

According to the table, while Rivers United and Enyimba were tied on same number of points, a totally strange/ inconclusive head-to-head consideration affected by same force majeure was used to place Enyimba in the second position.“Nothing can be further from the truth; as such consideration can only exist in the imagination of those peddling the fake table“For emphasis and to inform discerning members of the public, what is internationally known and even in the rule books of League Management Company (LMC) of Nigeria is that points are the first basis of separating teams, followed by goal difference before head to head.“The Points Per Game (PPG) model adopted by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and LMC is a straight forward co-efficient of dividing the total number of points with the total number of matches played as when the league was suspended in order to guarantee fairness to club that played less number of matches.“With the application of PPG, all teams are now measured equally erasing the scenario of whether or not any club played higher number of matches than the other.“It also follows therefore that in separating the tie by goal difference, is to divide number of goals scored by number of matches played to arrive at a coefficient.“Based on the above, it is obvious that Rivers United is the second-placed team and no amount of false narratives will deceive those who should know.“We have already made our position known to the NFF and LMC and, we expect that justice will be served without fear or favour.“On a final note, we may be compelled to explore all legitimate means available, including formal petitions to FIFA, CAF, and CAS to ventilate our grievances and press for justice,” concludes the press statement made available on several platforms by the Rivers United FC media.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Rivers United FC have threatened to explore legitimate means available including formal petition to FIFA, CAF and CAS to ventilate their grievances over the decision of the league managers to place the team in third position.Rivers United have insisted they finished second and not third as against the final season table revealed by the League Management Company.In a statement signed by the General Manager of the club, Okey Kpaluku and made available to media over the weekend which reads, “Our attention has been drawn to a purported Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table being circulated around the media space wherein Plateau United, Enyimba and Rivers United were placed first, second and third respectively.
