COVID-19: California Considers Releasing 8,000 Prisoners

Published

As COVID-19 is on the rise in Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the possibility of reopening the city, just weeks after city officials relaxed traffic restrictions.

At the state prison, the situation is tense, with California authorities considering releasing about 8,000 minor inmates.

California continues to be at the forefront of the devastating effects of the virus, with an estimated 400,000 people infected.

To alleviate the problem, officials say they are considering releasing 8,000 minor inmates with less than 180 days to complete their sentence.

Only those over the age of 30 who are not in good health will be rehabilitated.

About 3,000 inmates in California have been diagnosed with COVID-19, and at least 10 of them have died.

Critics say prisoner exchanges have led to the spread of the disease in prisons. The state has since replaced the chief medical officer of the prisons.
