Lessons learned in Oklahoma’s interrupted semester will be critical to delivering instruction this fall
Data analyzed by a Johns Hopkins University researcher suggests people incarcerated in state and federal prisons are at higher risk of catching Covid-19 and of dying from the disease.
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections decides which prisoners to test for Covid-19 on a cases by case basis. So far, two prisoners have tested positive for Covid-19.
The Marshall Project reported coronavirus infections in U.S. prisons more than tripled in one week.
Some doctors are asking states to turn over drugs the states use for lethal injections. Oklahoma’s corrections agency says no hospital has asked it for any “specific medicine.”
Oklahoma prisons are overcrowded and prisoners have to live in enclosed spaces where social distancing is difficult. The conditions are perfect for coronavirus to spread.
