Gothamist: “They Sent Us To Just Fade Away And Die”: Men Incarcerated at Cuomo’s Prison Nursing Home Say They Can’t Access Medical Care. “An 80-year-old man, suffering from osteoporosis, ordered to do manual labor. A 63-year-old with AIDS deprived of a routine blood test. A 64-year-old with chronic lung disease unable to see a doctor.

Nearly 100 inmates over the age of 60 were hastily transferred there in June, as COVID-19 was spreading through downstate prisons.”
