Health commissioner now values transparency.


Now he values transparency!

Embattled state Health Commissioner Howard Zucker has long been criticized as the point-man in disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s efforts to cover-up the true tally of coronavirus deaths of nursing home residents.

But Zucker on Thursday took a swipe at his old boss and suggested he was just following Cuomo’s orders while also praising new Gov. Kathy Hochul’s commitment to releasing more complete COVID-19 data.

“I’m thrilled Gov. Kathy Hochul has taken the helm in the state … Her leadership allowing me and all of DOH to get the data out is refreshing,” Zucker said.

“And her commitment as she has said to transparency is revitalizing,” Zucker said.
