Letter: COVID-19 has far-reaching effects

| July 15, 2020 9:44 PM

COVID-19 has risen all over, even in our prisons. Why hasn’t anything been done? Those prisoners didn’t come out to the public to receive this disease; the only persons bringing this disease to the prisons were the staff and guards. Why are they getting better masks than the inmates there?

What are the governor and Congress doing about COVID-19 in our prisons? The true fact is, we didn’t ask for this disease, which could have been stopped since they knew something was going on in China.

The world will not be the same. Wearing a mask, keeping clean and maintaining a six-foot distance are only precautions, not a cure. There are people showing no signs. How many need to be infected or die to keep the American people safe?
