Because we never did have a scarcity of it beds. We always had additional hospital beds and emergency beds. So no nursing home was forced to take someone. We never got there. Other states are there today —“

GEIST: “Yeah.”

CUOMO: “— interestingly enough. And they’re Republican states and that’s why the president has stopped saying it.”
