Overcrowded Prisons Petri Dish For Coronavirus

Will America's overcrowded prisons prove to be a petri-dish for new viruses and lock the coronavirus inside United States borders?

Prisons are notorious for a lack of medical care to inmates. Now many are worried that the overcrowded and unsanitary conditions the US forces human beings to live through. Many prisoners are there for petty crime, or because of an institutionally racist criminal injustice system. Overcrowding will help spread the coronavirus (CO-VID19) among the prison population.

What are inmates going to do when medical care is often denied as a form of punishment? How can we help prisoners and incarcerated people deal with the coronavirus? Thom Hartmann responds to a caller with these concerns.
