Governor Cuomo believes an independent investigation into nursing home deaths during the coronavirus crisis is not necessary. His comments yesterday came the same day members of the state Legislature were holding another hearing on nursing home policies.

Lawmakers say they want to know the factors involved in the deaths of more than 6,000 New Yorkers at long-term care facilities since the pandemic started in March.

The governor says criticism of how the state handled nursing home residents is political.
