“I think the governor and [Mayor Bill de Blasio], frankly, have handled things very well,” Schumer said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “We’ve been the epicenter of the crisis with so much going on and the issues of hospitals and nursing homes were very hard to manage. I think they managed it well.”

Despite an increasing coronavirus death toll in New York nursing homes—over 5,500 nursing home residents have died from the virus in the state—Schumer said he supported Cuomo’s handling of the issue.

“I think our governor has handled it well,” Schumer said. “I don’t have any dispute with what he has done.”
