WESTCHESTER SENATE CANDIDATE DR. LIVIU SAIMOVICI CALLS FOR AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO
ANDREW CUOMO’S NURSING HOME POLICIES

Rye, NY–May 5th, 2020… Dr. Liviu “Dr. Liv” Saimovici, the Republican and Conservative Party candidate for New York’s 37th State Senate District, called for an independent investigation into Andrew Cuomo’s policy of ordering nursing homes to take in COVID-19 positive patients.

“It is truly unconscionable for Andrew Cuomo’s administration to be forcing nursing homes to take in COVID-19 positive patients,” said Dr. Liv. “With thousands of lives already lost in nursing homes across the state, an independent investigation must be launched to ensure this never happens again.”

“Our seniors in nursing homes deserve better than to be put at incredible risk by the state,” Dr. Liv continued. “How many lives have been lost due to this misguided policy?”

“There must be accountability for the decisions made by the Department of Health and Andrew Cuomo’s administration, and that starts with an independent investigation. Bringing Governor Cuomo’s medical advisers to his daily press conferences to answer for their recommendations must be the first step in this process.”
