Short Update: Spanish prisons effectively contain COVID

FairTrialsAdmin - April 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Prison conditions, Prison monitoring

Spanish prisons have a mortality rate of COVID four times less than that of the general Spanish population.  They have achieved this positive rate of health through effective isolation of prisoners, mitigated by the distribution of free mobile phones to incarcerated people so that contact with the outside world can be maintained. Furthermore, they strengthened and enhanced access to medical care for those living within prisons. It is reported that prisoners have welcomed and complied with the efforts to keep them safe.
