What does the Cuomo household have in opposition to aged folks? First, Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) killed scores of aged folks by ordering COVID sufferers into nursing houses, after which, on Tuesday, CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo decried how elderly-rich Florida getting extra vaccine doses than New York. He even had the nerve to query whether or not Floridians “ought to” get the doses they want. And the logic (in the event you might even name it that) behind the argument, was an asinine mess.

This rant was all a part of Chris’s so-called “Vacci-Nation” phase, which NewsBusters previously noted was Cuomo’s new phase the place he pushed vaccine distribution conspiracy theories. And he was way more ahead in flaunting his intention with the phase on night time two. “Once more, is that this nearly math? Or is it manipulation,” he proclaimed after noting Texas was slated to get a variety of doses.

In line with Cuomo’s internet of speculated doubtful dealings, states with probably the most circumstances ought to get probably the most doses. And in line with him, these states have been “New York, California, Texas, Florida,” in that order. He stated that whereas an on-screen graphic labeled California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, and New York as having probably the most circumstances, in that order. However on the identical time, the graphic labeled the 4 states Cuomo listed as main in deaths.

So, which metric have been we supposed to make use of, circumstances or deaths?

Shifting the goalpost but once more, Cuomo demanded that vaccines be distributed primarily based on “the dimensions of want” which included “nursing residence sufferers and well being care employees.” That’s when he lashed out at Florida in protection of his residence state (Click on “increase”):

Context, I do know this man named Cuomo up in New York. He stated about 10,000 doses have been administered yesterday. That leaves him simply as uncovered, given the dimensions of want, as he was with out the vaccine, comparatively. Each bit counts after all, however New York wants a lot extra and so much quicker or the curve of circumstances goes to go up longer and embody extra of the those that we want on the entrance strains. Time equals demise right here.

Governor DeSantis in Florida stated they despatched about 100,000 to 5 hospitals. However there is a delay as shipments for the following two weeks are, quote, “on maintain proper now.” Two points. One, why did they get so many greater than New York, is it true, that they did? As a result of the numbers appear to recommend it. Is that the reply?

 

 

But when “the dimensions of want” was the metric, then it was right for Florida to get extra doses. In line with the Population Research Bureau, Florida has over 4 million residents above the age of 65 that add as much as over 20 % of the inhabitants. By comparability, New York had over three million comparable residents which made up solely 16.4 % of the inhabitants.

Now, provided that Texas was quantity two on the listing of circumstances, Cuomo appeared unhinged as he lashed out at them for being scheduled to get a variety of doses. He even appeared to recommend Texas shouldn’t be thought of as a result of they have been supposedly irresponsible:

However solely one of many states that I simply talked about, Texas, is even scheduled to get near sufficient doses to present everybody within the first group a single dose by the top of the 12 months. Why Texas? It is not the largest? Definitely hasn’t been probably the most accountable. Why Texas? In reality, of the 5 states that can get sufficient to present everybody within the first group a single dose by New 12 months’s, not one of the states who will qualify that method are within the prime 20 with regards to case depend.

On the finish of that spiel, he was outraged that Kansas, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Virginia have been set to offer the primary dose to all part one recipients (the aged and well being care employees) by New 12 months’s.

On Tuesday, one in every of Cuomo’s demanded metrics for vaccine distribution was the caseload per state. However on Monday, he was raging over Illinois getting extra doses than Ohio. “Illinois, the development of recent circumstances decrease than Ohio. Acquired much more doses immediately. 43,000 arrived this morning in comparison with lower than 2,000 in Ohio. Is that honest,” he puzzled. However in line with Tuesday’s graphic, Illinois was quantity 4 typically.

Once more, which one in every of your metrics have been we supposed to make use of, Chris? Or, have been you simply on the lookout for one thing to bleat about?

CHRIS CUOMO: All proper, Vacci-nation, Vacci-Nation, we’ll be utilizing Sanjay, we’ll be utilizing senators, we’ll going to states, we’ll be going to localities, I’ll take what you’re telling us about what you’re listening to in your individual neighborhood. Why? As a result of this issues and transparency is every part.

The place to focus the vaccine, who ought to get it? Okay. Properly, in the event you begin with the plain metric, the place are probably the most circumstances, the place are folks dying probably the most? It’s going to be your huge states. New York, California, Texas, Florida. Okay.

However now let’s take a look at these states. Additionally they have probably the most well being care employees, proper? As a result of you may have the most individuals. You’ve got the most individuals, most inhabitants, most circumstances, most well being care employees, most every part. Nursing residence sufferers and well being care employees, they want so much and so they’re first up for doses.

However solely one of many states that I simply talked about, Texas, is even scheduled to get near sufficient doses to present everybody within the first group a single dose by the top of the 12 months. Why Texas? It is not the largest? Definitely hasn’t been probably the most accountable. Why Texas? In reality, of the 5 states that can get sufficient to present everybody within the first group a single dose by New Years, not one of the states who will qualify that method are within the prime 20 with regards to case depend.

Once more, is that this nearly math? Or is it manipulation?

We should not simply observe who wants what, however who will get what. And when, and naturally, why. We’re simply getting began, it is already a difficulty, as I simply outlined to you. So, this implies we’re going to need to be throughout this.

Context, I do know this man named Cuomo up in New York. He stated about 10,000 doses have been administered yesterday. That leaves him simply as uncovered, given the dimensions of want, as he was with out the vaccine, comparatively. Each bit counts after all, however New York wants a lot extra and so much quicker or the curve of circumstances goes to go up longer and embody extra of the those that we want on the entrance strains. Time equals demise right here.

Governor DeSantis in Florida stated they despatched about 100,000 to 5 hospitals. However there is a delay as shipments for the following two weeks are, quote, “on maintain proper now.” Two points. One, why did they get so many greater than New York, is it true, that they did? As a result of the numbers appear to recommend it. Is that the reply?

DeSantis says, nicely that is about Pfizer and their manufacturing points. Is it? Or, this isn’t about that you-only-need-one-shot BS, that he was attempting to pedal, is it? Did they get the doses they want? Ought to they?

This all calls for solutions in actual time as a result of in any other case issues will fall on prime of each other. As a result of what you give one state that they weren’t purported to get will fall down the road and there will likely be shortfalls.
