Coronavirus in Prisons (#1)

Prisons are quickly becoming hotspots of Coronavirus and incubators of the disease among inmates and staff, with the potential to cause a great deal of harm. I’ll do my best to keep these numbers updated regularly. As of today there are at least 3,739 state prison inmates nationwide who have tested positive for COVID-19. Three states (Nebraska, New Mexico, West Virginia) do have not made publicly available any solid data about prisoner cases.
