Jul 11, 2020 38 secs

The researchers analyzed cases between March 31 and June 6, and found that 510 inmates had died from the virus and 42,107 had been infected.

Prisons had an infection rate of 3,251 cases for every 100,000 people behind bars, compared to the general population's rate of 587 cases per 100,000.

Correctional facilities logged 39 deaths for every 100,000 inmates, compared to 29 deaths per 100,000 in the rest of the country.

"Some prisons are not reporting any cases, others are not even testing inmates, so the need for policies to protect incarcerated populations is more important than ever.".

In California, 2,286 inmates have been sickened by the virus, and 31 have died as of Friday, according to the state's Department of Corrections and Rehab.

Most of the infections have been reported at the San Quentin State Prison, where seven inmates have died.
