Coronavirus: El Salvador Declares State of Emergency in Prisons


Coronavirus: El Salvador Declares State of Emergency in Prisons

Footage provided by El Salvador's Presidency show inmates at the Izalco prison lining up in tight lines during a security operation during the coronavirus pandemic, northwest of San Salvador, Saturday, April 25.

Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele late on Friday ordered a 24-hour lockdown of prisons containing gang members, and said their leaders would be sent into solitary confinement after a sudden spike in homicides during the day.

Bukele said the “maximum emergency” lockdown would be enforced while police investigated some 22 homicides reported on Friday.

Only a few years ago, El Salvador, which has long been plagued by powerful street gangs known as maras, had the highest homicide rate in the Americas.

El Salvador has imposed some of the strictest measures in the Americas to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

Riots have broken out at prisons all over the world including in Argentina, Cameroon, and Malawi as the global health crisis exaggerates.

Inmates are protesting hygiene conditions, lack of personal protection equipment and poor cell conditions, while some protested on the roof of prisons.

India is reporting a sharp increase in the number of rare “black fungus” infections, or mucormycosis, among patients who survived Covid-19. The fungal infection is caused by exposure to a mould commonly found in soil and plants. But the current outbreak is afflicting post-Covid-19 patients with diabetes, who have been treated with steroids that compromised their immune systems.

???????? Coronavirus in India: Your questions answered | The Stream

The coronavirus continues to have a strong and painful grip on India as its record-breaking surge continues.

Official numbers put total new cases at more than 3.5 million this week and deaths are now close to a quarter of a million. And the Indian Institute of Science has predicted more than 400,000 Covid-19 deaths are still to come. Right now, India is vaccinating about 2.1 million people daily, or around 0.15 percent of its population.

The healthcare system is completely overwhelmed, frontline workers are overburdened and families are shattered. But the issue has become more political and polarising than before. Debates, whether it is new variants, waning immunity or lax behaviour, continue as numbers skyrocket.

In this episode of The Stream, we put your questions live to a panel of Indian experts – tell us what you want to know.

COVID-19 in California Prisons | KQED Newsroom

Effectively, half of those incarcerated in California prisons have caught COVID19. KQED reporter Monica Lam looks at how the pandemic has ripped through the prison system — and whether the vaccine offers a ray of hope.

“Most of my friends caught COVID, and I know a few people that also passed,” says Adamu Chan, who was released from San Quentin a few months ago. “There was really no kind of standard for mask use or hand sanitizer.”

Prison Law Office Executive Director Don Specter’s assessment of San Quentin: “They couldn't have done anything worse than what they did, because the whole prison at San Quentin, virtually two thirds of the prison got infected … It traveled through the prison system at the speed of light.”

KQED Newsroom airs on CH 9 Fridays at 7 p.m.
