Charles Hobbs Died of COVID-19 While in Prison | NowThis

Charles Hobbs, who was held in prison before his trial because he couldn’t afford bail, pleaded for help before dying of COVID-19.

The coronavirus pandemic has a disparate impact on different communities, and few places are more dangerous than prisons and jails. COVID, which already disproportionately affects communities of color, is particularly dangerous in close, confined, unsanitary places like prisons, which themselves house a disproportionate amount of people of color thanks to systemic racism.

For COVID, prisons are a fertile breeding ground, and the vulnerable populations inside are at extreme risk of getting ill and dying in coronavirus prisons. In the era of COVID 19, prisons and prisoners are not getting the attention or resources needed to keep prisoners safe, and it’s time to stop turning a blind eye to the horrors occurring inside prisons.
