When New York became the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States previous year, Governor Andrew Cuomo's articulate daily COVID-19 briefings became must-see television.

Cuomo said it's a "lie" that he obstructed justice, and told reporters Wednesday that he had a "long hostile relationship" with Kim.

Cuomo has been slammed in the last week with accusations that he covered up New York's nursing home death toll. We have been cooperating with them and we will continue to. "No excuses. I accept responsibility for that".

Back in January, New York Attorney General Letitia James released a scathing report on the way that nursing homes in New York State handled the COVID-19 pandemic.

CNN said it spoke with three additional Democratic New York lawmakers who said they were similarly threatened by the governor.

"All the deaths in the nursing homes and hospitals were always fully, publicly and accurately reported", the governor said, weeks after the state was forced to acknowledge that its count of nursing home deaths excluded thousands who perished after being taken to hospitals.

Mississippi Avenue between Atlantic Avenue and the Boardwalk will be closed. "This is going to be exciting". However, Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small downplayed the building's connection to the one-time president.

Members of that task force include the governor's secretary, Melissa DeRosa, who was caught on audio last week admitting to top Democratic leaders in NY that the administration hid the full data on nursing home fatalities during the Trump administration over fears that the president would call them out.

"So much for Mr. Kim's credibility, and I said to him on the phone, 'You know, there is still integrity and honor and decency in politics, ' but that's that for Mr. Kim", Cuomo said on Wednesday.

"While he claims he was taking time to answer the Justice Department, we saw him gallivant around on a book tour and victory lap across prime time cable shows".

He explained that as a difference of "categorization", with the state counting where deaths occurred and others seeking total deaths of nursing home residents, regardless of the location. Kim had initially supported the reforms, but later opposed some of them after getting support from salon owners.

"These facts are not going way because they are the facts- unacceptable facts that hold him accountable", Kim said in the statement.

State Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that indoor family entertainment centers and places of amusement can open with a 25 percent capacity limit beginning Friday, March 26. She said they were anxious they would be used against them in a federal investigation. He said, "No man has ever spoken to me like that in my entire life".
