New York Inmates Describe Lack Of Protection Against COVID-19

The coronavirus has arrived at New York’s Rikers Island jail system and inmates are offered no protection against it.

Inmates don’t have access to gloves or masks and only have cold water to wash their hands.

An inmate said: “In the end, we are just inmates, second-class citizens.

We are like livestock.” According to Reuters, at least 132 inmates and 104 staff at jails across New York City testes positive for COVID-19.
