Latest Coronavirus News
FRIDAY, May 8, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Thousands of inmates and staff in U.S. correctional facilities have tested positive for the new coronavirus and dozens have died, a new U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report says.
The CDC analyzed data from 37 health departments nationwide and 32 of them reported at least one laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 case among inmates or staff at 420 separate jails and prisons, CBS News reported.
The report authors noted that because they didn't have nationwide data, their findings don't represent the total number of cases in all U.S. correctional facilities, CBS News reported.
