The report, which was based on interviews with unnamed officials in Cuomo's administration, alleges that the numbers were changed out of a desire to protect Cuomo from political fallout relating to his decision to order nursing homes to readmit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19.

Facing calls for his resignation, Cuomo said Wednesday he would remain in office but apologized for acting "in a way that made people feel uncomfortable". He said he will comply fully with an independent investigation overseen by state Attorney General Letitia James.

Mr. Cuomo has been divorced from ex-wife Kerry Kennedy since 2003.

Cuomo has also come under fire for his mishandling of COVID-19 nursing home deaths in the state, in which a separate investigation has been made against him.

His administration has been heavily criticized for delaying a full accounting of deaths at long-term-care facilities.

"The out-of-facility data was omitted after DOH (Department of Health) could not confirm it had been adequately verified", Beth Garvey, a special counsel and senior adviser to Cuomo, told the Journal and the Times late on Thursday, adding the additional data did not change the report's conclusion.

Mr. Cuomo gained national attention for his response to the coronavirus as it ravaged the state a year ago.

The Senate Democratic Majority said Friday "this system restores the pre-existing balance of power, ensures genuine checks and balances even during a state of emergency, and mandates a better flow of information between the Governor, the Legislature, and the State's localities for the remainder of the pandemic".
