Families who lost elderly loved ones to COVID-19 plan mock funeral for Governor Andrew Cuomo's 'leadership and integrity' in front of virus-hit nursing home

Image
Relatives who lost loved ones infected with COVID-19 in New York State nursing homes plan to stage a mock funeral on Sunday to mark the death of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s ‘leadership and integrity.’ The demonstration is aimed at ratcheting up public pressure on Cuomo, the largely popular New York governor whose controversial order requiring nursing homes to take back COVID-19 patients from hospitals is believed to have led to the deaths of thousands. The bereaved families will hold the demonstration Sunday at noon outside the Cobble Hill Health Center in northwestern Brooklyn. At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the nursing home in Cobble Hill is believed to have reported the highest number of deaths of any old-age facility in the state - 56. Daniel Arbeeny, 57, is helping organize a mock funeral for Governor Andrew Cuomo's 'leadership and integrity' on Sunday in front of a Brooklyn nursing home where his father was a patient before he died of COVID-19 earlier this year.
