Today 75 inmates tested positive for #coronavirus in NYC jails including #RikersIsland nearly double the amount yesterday. 39 Correction staff have the virus. @LegalAidNYC compared the rate of infection to city and state numbers.
By comparison, the rate of infections in NY state prisons is moving at a slower pace. Three inmates including #HarveyWeinstein have #coronavirus. But the number of correction officers is almost double from yesterday with 33 who tested positive.
At this rate, the number of inmates who will contract #coronavirus on #RikersIsland could reach triple digits as soon as tomorrow. Still, efforts to release certain inmates — several hundred — are slow, too slow to minimize the spread of the virus.
