Rath Calls for DOH Official to be Subpoenaed

It is completely unacceptable that the scheduled Department of Health (DOH) COVID-19 hearing was cancelled.  I joined my colleagues this morning in a press conference to demand answers and I believe that Senator O’Mara’s subpoena of Howard Zucker is critical.  We need a full investigation into this nursing home data coverup.

The DOH is fully aware that there are many answers that the public needs.  Unfortunately, they are trying to avoid answering tough questions by postponing the hearing until the end of the month.  We need to hold them accountable.  Between the flawed rollout of the vaccine distribution to the coverup of nursing home deaths, to say there is a lot that needs to be discussed is an understatement.  The public deserves answers and accountability and what we are seeing is far from that.
