ALBANY, N.Y. — New York may have undercounted COVID-19 deaths of nursing home residents by as much as 50%, the state’s attorney general said in a report released Thursday. Attorney General Letitia James has, for months, been examining discrepancies between the number of deaths being reported by the state's Department of Health, and the number of deaths reported by the homes themselves. Her investigators looked at a sample of 62 of the state’s roughly 600 nursing homes. They reported 1,914 deaths of residents from COVID-19, while the state Department of Health logged only 1,229 deaths at those same facilities. If that same pattern exists statewide, James' report said, it would mean the state is underreporting deaths by nearly 56%. Part of the gap is explained by a decision by New York's health agency to exclude from its count the number of nursing home patients who die after being transferred to hospitals. Hospital and nursing home officials say the state has ready access to that figure. Health Commissioner Howard Zucker has said at times that the state is working on compiling that data. His department has not responded to repeated requests by The Associated Press for that figure in recent weeks. As of Tuesday, the state was reporting 8,711 deaths in nursing homes statewide. James' report, which her office described as preliminary, mirrors findings by others who have scrutinized New York's statistics on nursing home deaths. An Associated Press analysis published in August concluded that the state could be understating deaths by as much as 65%, based on discrepancies between its totals and numbers being reported to federal regulators. That analysis was, like James' report, based on only a slice of data, rather than a comprehensive look at all homes in the state. Gov. Andrew Cuomo promised to take a “special” effort to protect nursing homes early on last spring. He tasked James last year with investigating how nursing homes were complying with COVID-19 guidelines last year. James said her review found that a lack of infection controls at nursing homes also put residents at increased risk of harm, while nursing homes that had lower federal scores for staffing had higher COVID-19 fatality rates. “As the pandemic and our investigations continue, it is imperative that we understand why the residents of nursing homes in New York unnecessarily suffered at such an alarming rate,” said Attorney General James. “While we cannot bring back the individuals we lost to this crisis, this report seeks to offer transparency that the public deserves and to spur increased action to protect our most vulnerable residents."

Star quarterback Deshaun Watson has requested a trade from the Houston Texans, a person familiar with the move told The Associated Press. The person was not authorized to speak publicly about the request and spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity Thursday. Watson has a no-trade clause in his four-year, $156 million contract, so he could have some control over where he might be dealt.

A poll of nearly 2,600 pilots by UK-based GOOSE Recruitment and industry publication FlightGlobal, released on Thursday, found only 43% were doing the job they had trained for, with 30% unemployed, 17% furloughed and 10% in non-flying roles. Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd, for example, instituted permanent pay cuts of up to 58%, and Turkish Airways and Singapore Airlines Ltd have temporarily lowering salaries. "We can see the effect the pandemic has had on employed pilots too," GOOSE Recruitment chief executive officer and founder Mark Charman said in a statement.
CALGARY — The association representing oilfield service companies is boosting its 2021 drilling forecast by 29 per cent thanks to a stronger commodity price outlook. The Petroleum Services Association of Canada says it now expects the number of wells drilled across Canada this year will total 3,350, up 750 over its original forecast in October of 2,600 and representing an increase from 2020 instead of a decline. PSAC says it now expects average benchmark U.S. crude oil prices of about US$50 per barrel, up 19 per cent from the old forecasts, with Alberta natural gas prices of C$2.60 per thousand cubic feet and the Canadian dollar slightly stronger at 79 cents US. The improved outlook is consistent with other recent signs of optimism in the gloomy oilpatch, with the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers calling for capital spending to rise to about $27.3 billion this year, up $3.36 billion compared with 2020. Neither forecast is particularly robust. Last year's expected well count of about 2,850 would have been a 50-year low and CAPP's spending estimate is a far cry from 2014 when oilpatch investment reached $81 billion. PSAC Interim CEO Elizabeth Aquin credited federal government programs such as the emergency wage subsidy and a $1.7-billion abandoned well cleanup program for helping oilfield services companies survive a prolonged downturn made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic's affect energy demand. "The innovation and technology developed by this vital sector is needed to continue to lower carbon emissions and demonstrate continued progress on our ESG record for investment," she said. "Increased investment will be required for opportunities to address the growing demand for natural gas for LNG and nascent blue hydrogen industry and to replace dwindling heavy oil volumes from Mexico and Venezuela to the U.S.” This report by The Canadian Press was first published Jan. 28, 2021.
