The coronavirus is going to impact the most vulnerable people and communities among us. Today Shaun starts to unpack what that's going to mean for America's jails and prisons.
The number of people who have contracted COVID-19 in America is unclear.
The statistics across government websites are inconsistent, most being far below what has been projected considering the country’s population. It has been nearly impossible to get an accurate number, because people are not being tested. While other countries have administered hundreds of thousands of coronavirus tests to those showing symptoms, the latest CDC data shows the United States number at a mere 25,000.
We have no way of knowing just how bad this pandemic is, because the government refuses to perform more tests.
In today’s episode, Shaun breaks down the danger of this misinformation and how it affects those most at risk.
