That's according to an investigation By The Associated Press The quote My administration is refusing to release the numbers of nursing home residents who died after they were transported to hospitals, which could add thousands more to the tally. Bernard Condon is a reporter with the A. P. And he says the state may not want to release the numbers because of criticism over a policy that required facilities to take back residents who were still recovering from covert 19. A lot of nursing homes. They want to do this. They thought it was going to expect their their their residents and there sat. The state has disputed that claim. They say New York only counts residents who died on nursing home property. To avoid double counting deaths. Officials are shifting resources to Sunset Park in Brooklyn, where they say they're seeing an increase in coded 19 cases, Mayor de Blasio says. It's unclear what's causing the object, but they have to address it immediately. We are going to be focused when we see even a warning light, even a hint of a problem we're going to send in what it takes to address it and to find out the next steps that we need to take to keep people safe.
