Covid Cuomo Gave His Family and Cronies First Access to the Coronavirus Tests

Covid Cuomo gave preferential COVID-19 testing access to New York-based pharmaceutical exec, along with Cuomo’s relatives, and other cronies got coronavirus testing priority.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker directed health officials to prioritize the governor’s own family and administration for testing in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report

Family members who reportedly received preferential testing included Cuomo’s brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, as well as his mother and at least one of his sisters, the Albany Times-Union reported, citing sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

Cuomo administration officials denied anyone received preferential treatment. Richard Azzopardi, a top adviser to Cuomo, said the allegations were “insincere efforts to rewrite the past.”

New York-based Regeneron Pharmaceuticals President Dr. George Yancopoulos was among those given preferential access to COVID-19 testing early in the pandemic by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, according to a report.

The company reportedly requested tests from the state on behalf of Yancopoulos and his family after a member of the household became ill. The family was tested at home last March, according to The New York Times, at a time when testing supplies were in critically short supply.

The company is the maker of monoclonal antibody drug treatment it says can reduce COVID-19 hospitalization or death by 70 percent in non-hospitalized patients.

As noted by the publication, Regeneron announced on April 1, 2020, that it would donate 500,000 COVID-19 test kits to the state amid the nationwide shortage.

The impeachment probe being carried out by the New York State Legislature will look into whether relatives of Gov. Cuomo received preferential access to testing supplies. It will also examine claims of sexual harassment and the treatment of nursing home patients during the pandemic.
