Transgender PA Health Secretary Moved His Mother Out Of Home After Ordering Nursing Homes To Accept COVID Patients

Public Advocate president Eugene Delgaudio says "Mario Cuomo the governor of New York intentionally or unintentionally murdered thousands by ordering COVID patients back to their "retirement homes," and infected more. But it is now reported in Pennsylvania a similar policy
with evidence that a state official (an openly transgendered Cabinet official) knowingly sentenced COVID patients to death but "pardoned" her own mother."


Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine's mother moved out of a personal care home with the health secretary's help, after Levine ordered all nursing homes and long-term facilities in the state to accept coronavirus patients from hospitals.

Levine admitted Tuesday to moving the 95-year-old Pennsylvania resident out of her personal care home, which is similar to an assisted living facility although technically distinct.

"My mother requested, and my sister and I as her children complied to move her to another location during the COVID-19 outbreak," Levine said. The health secretary's admission came after local station ABC27 found out about the move.

That was 11 days after the health secretary ordered nursing homes and other long-term facilities to continue admitting new patients and re-admitting current patients from the hospital, despite concerns about the elderly population's vulnerability to the virus.

Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also faced scrutiny over his state's handling of vulnerable nursing homes during the pandemic.

Cuomo on Sunday reversed a March 25 order requiring nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients. Under the new order, nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are allowed to wait for patients to test negative for the virus before admitting them.

The governor acknowledged that nursing homes have become "ground zero" for the virus.
