Brothers Peter and Daniel Arbeeny, who lost their father Norman last year after being discharged from a nursing home, on Wednesday sent a Freedom of Information request to New York State seeking documents related to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home directive of March 25, 2020.

Norman Arbeeny, who was 89 when he died, was one of 12 siblings in a Syrian immigrant family.

He lived in the same house, at 128 Amity St., all his life, Peter Arbeeny told the Eagle. 

On March 25, Cuomo issued a directive barring nursing homes from refusing patients based solely on a COVID-19 diagnosis, according to the Associated Press. Cuomo defended the directive as an effort to prevent catastrophic hospital overcrowding and discrimination against virus patients.

The number of coronavirus patients in US hospitals has dropped below 50,000 — the lowest level in nearly four months, data shows.

There were 48,870 patients being treated for the virus in hospitals Saturday, according to data from the COVID Tracking Project.

“For the first time since Nov 2, the number of people currently hospitalized with COVID-19 is below 50k,” the organization wrote on Twitter.

The number of hospitalizations has been steadily falling since its peak of 132,474 admitted patients on Jan. 6, data shows.

Hospitalizations are a key metric for tracking progress in the pandemic, because unlike case counts, they are not impacted by the number of tests performed.

The US also recorded 70,622 new infections and 1,822 virus-related deaths on Saturday, according to the data.
