17 People Incarcerated in Cook County Jail Test Positive for COVID-19
In three days, the number of people incarcerated at Cook County Jail with COVID-19 went from 1 to 17. As of today, 50 incarcerated people have been tested and 31 are still waiting for their test results.
This is what exponential increase looks like in an environment where social distancing is impossible. The only solution is mass release NOW.
