California's San Quentin Prison Was Free of the Virus. One Decision Fueled an Outbreak.
"California's one of the large states that has having a large surge in corona virus, cases and hospitalizations right now Arizona of courses in terrible shape right now. Texas is in terrible shape Florida, starting to get really terrible really fast. All three of those states are now having hospitals overrun while their case numbers hospitalization numbers just keep climbing every day scary. but California's having a real problem too, and here's something really specific. That's going on in. California, that was not just like a bad situation that arose from the Meyer of this epidemic in California part of their big problem, right now was a single screw up a bad mistake that has now set off. What is really a disaster? Here's what happened. By mid April one of the largest state prisons in California had run of outbreak. It started as just a handful of cases at the California State Prison in Chino. But it soon became dozens of cases, prisoners and staff alike. At the time there were more than forty two hundred men imprisoned at Chino that's nearly twenty percent more than the capacity. That prison was built to handle and of course. You know by their very nature. Correctional facilities and specifically overcrowded correctional facilities like Chino was just a hot bread for any hotbed for any sort of. Contagious, illness and sort of outbreak. So when they knew that in mid. April it was no wonder that by the following month by May. Corona virus had just run through every dorm, used to house prisoners at Chino. By the end of May there were six hundred and thirty five confirmed cases at Chino. There were nine men dead. Given the crisis, they had on their hands. The State Department of Corrections along with the State Attorney Journal decided that they would transfer all bunch of prisoners out of that prison out of Chino, and they would send them to other prisons in the state. One of those prisons was the infamous prison just north of San Francisco called Quenton now. At the time San Quentin had actually been doing very well and beating back the epidemic so well in fact at the time. San Quentin had no infections saint. Quentin had no corona virus infections in March. In April and it may. But then came this influx of prisoners from China, which had a terrible problem there more than one hundred twenty prisoners were transferred from Chino to that facility at San Quentin and they'd all been tested at some point before transfer. But. It wasn't like they were particularly sticklers timing it right off the bat. They knew problems. Many of the prisoners hadn't been tested for coronavirus for up to a month. Before they got sent from China to this new prison at San Quentin. And so at Saint Quentin within days. They get the sides of their first infections. In the month, or so since those transfers San Quentin has now become the largest corona virus outbreak in California. There have now been more than fifteen. Hundred confirmed cases at San, Quentin alone and at least six deaths. Three of those deaths just came this weekend. And amidst this huge spike in more than fifteen hundred cases at San Quentin. Well now, the top medical officer for California prisons has been fired. And now with the virus, having spread unabated throughout San Clinton. It is I mean there's no wonder that a lot of people are worried a lot of different levels starting of course with prisoners. And with their families recently, we had the chance to speak with the mother of one prisoner at San Clinton and her name is Rita Zavala. And she told us this about her son's cellmate, recently testing positive and how her son is living now. Are Man their lives matter to. Just like everybody else. And they should be treated like. Animals? That so like they are treating them like. Just let him sit there. You know if you make it. Oh, good, if not allow you know. That's not how treated human. Stage they got there, but they're paying for their mistake. You know being in prison. But my son was. But I feel like he is now because I don't know. If he if he is going to get the virus, and not is GonNa make it through the by rich because of their medical is not the greatest. You know. Last point raised by Ms Avella is critical one. It's the it's not just the number of men that are dying at San. Quentin, that is the cost for alarm. It's also the huge number of prisoners who are positive there now who are requiring medical care and they're requiring advanced medical care, which means they're getting not just the prison itself, but within the whole local healthcare system, some hospitals within reaching distance of San Clinton, have become so taxed already by San Quentin prisoners filling up their issues that they're no longer accepting any transfers of California state prisoners to their facilities situations gotten bad enough that one local doctor told our NBC news affiliate and San Francisco. That San Quentin is the Chernobyl of covid.

So that doesn't include jails and of those about seven hundred thousand returned to the community each year within three years we typically save between thirty to forty percent.

Not really doing anything to be able to better themselves. What kind of men and women? Do we want? Turning to our communities when they get out of prison and win they're out.
