Gov. Cuomo: Covid Patients Were Never Sent to Nursing Homes

‘We had extra beds’
By Grabien Staff


CUOMO: "And we never needed nursing home beds because we always had hospital beds. So it just never happened in New York, where we needed to say to a nursing home, 'We need you to take this person even though they're COVID-positive.' It never happened. We had extra beds, we had extra beds at Javits, we had extra beds at emergency hospitals that we put up all across the state. So it just never happened that we needed a nursing home to take a COVID-positive person. It never happened."
