‘NYS Clean’ hand sanitizer prison laborer diagnosed with coronavirus

first_imgMivPiv/iStockBy CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Earlier this month, an inmate at Great Meadow Correctional Facility began to notice some of the other prisoners were getting sick. Fearful for his life, he called his wife, Renee Evans-Henry.Evans-Henry said her husband was afraid that the coronavirus had made its way into the Washington County, New York, facility weeks after officials suspended facility visitation as a preventative measure — despite the fact that inmates weren’t told anything. She asked ABC News not use her husband’s name for fear of law enforcement retaliation against him. According to coronavirus data for 45 state prisons released Sunday by the state’s Department of Corrections (DOC), 211 state prisoners and 794 jail staffers have contracted the coronavirus, formally known as COVID-19. Of the infected inmates, five have died while 57 have recovered, according to the report.At Great Meadow, there were seven inmates with confirmed COVID-19 cases as of March 31 and three have recovered, according to the report.Evans-Henry’s husband is the eighth case.“A few weeks ago, he called me and kept saying ‘the virus is in here, the virus is in here.’ He said people are dying and they aren’t giving them any reason,” Evans-Henry, of Queens, New York, told ABC News on Tuesday.Members of the Inmate Liaison Committee are expected to brief all inmates on positive cases — without identifying them per HIPAA privacy rules — and inform them of any new actions that are being taken in response to the global health emergency. For each positive coronavirus case, DOC is expected to follow all Department of Health protocols, including performing a reverse trace to identify and notify any potentially impacted individuals and isolating or quarantining them if necessary.The five inmates who died from the coronavirus were not among the 1,404 housed in Great Meadow, according to the report. Three were in Sing Sing, one was in Otisville and one was in Queensboro Correctional Facility.Despite African Americans making up 13% of the U.S. population, 33% of coronavirus patients are African American, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics as of Tuesday. The demographic makeup of the infected and deceased state inmates was not available.Based on figures from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice’s criminal history’s database, of the 13,655 felony arrests in 2018, those sentenced to prison included 6,505 African Americans, 3,813 whites, 3,042 Hispanics, 148 Asians and 147 who were considered “other/unknown.”Evans-Henry’s husband, who is black, is also one of the 98 inmates who volunteered to make the thousands of gallons of “NYS Cares” hand sanitizer to help combat the low stock of the cleanser at state agencies like schools and the MTA, where she’s employed as a bus operator.Evans-Henry’s husband, who is in his 40s and is in good health, wasn’t feeling well on Saturday and went to the infirmary, she said.“The nurse said he had a fever of 108, then 102, then 97 … they gave him the coronavirus test,” said Evans-Henry, who learned of his positive diagnosis on Tuesday morning.Evans-Henry, 42, said that during each call with her husband — who is serving an 8-years-to-life sentence for assault in St. Lawrence County, New York — he said he was afraid he was going to catch the virus because the facility’s conditions were “horrific” and “not clean,” with inmates given only a “thin cloth to wear” on their face.“I really feel numb, lost, confused because I’m trying to figure out how he got it and what precautions did they take to protect the inmates from getting the virus? Only the COs and medical staff are going in and out of there,” said Evans-Henry. “I can still hear him saying it’s there, it’s there, and then he got it.”Visitation ended at correctional facilities statewide on March 14.DOC officials wouldn’t comment directly on conditions at Great Meadow, but said they have taken several preventative measures including allowing the incarcerated population to use state-issued handkerchiefs as masks and stopping internal transfers of incarcerated individuals except for medical and other exigent circumstances. Officials also said they are following enhanced cleaning and sanitizing measures and disinfecting procedures for office surfaces and devices, consistent with CDC and New York State Department of Health guidelines.Evans-Henry said she had to make the painful phone calls to her husband’s family to let them know about his diagnosis. Medical officials told her they were placing him in quarantine for 14 days, she said.“His sister cried,” Evans-Henry said. “I have been praying. I’m hurt. Listening how many deaths are happening worldwide and how this virus is taking people down one by one — how do I help him? How do we fix it? I can’t even talk to him — there’s no phones in the infirmary.”Evans-Henry said that while others may not have compassion for inmates because of the crimes they were convicted of, “they are human beings and are confined in a small space,” despite social distancing guidelines.“He just wants to do his time and come home,” she said.

Activists march down Cowley Road to ‘save NHS’

first_imgGreen party councillor David Williams, whose son is an NHS doctor in the north of the country, played on the need for national defence of the NHS in a speech before the march began.He said: “We are also celebrating the 70 years of the NHS – its founder Aneurin Bevan said the NHS would last as long as there are people to defend it.“Well we are here to defend it and we will do that until the very end.”SERVICE UPDATES. Delays to our services using Cowley Road in Oxford due to an unexpected march taking place. Please expect delays until the march is over.— Stagecoach Oxfordshire (@Stagecoach_Ox) June 9, 2018The vacancy rate in Oxfordshire hospitals is twice the national average. Both MPs and employers have acknowledged that the high cost of housing is deterring people from taking up jobs in local hospitals.In a parliamentary debate earlier this year, Oxford MP Layla Moran cited the “prohibitive cost of housing” as being the key factor motivating Oxford NHS staff from leaving.She said: “The government can and must take a role collaboratively with stake holders to recognise the unique situation and challenges we face in Oxfordshire.“If we do nothing I believe we risk seeing the rationing of care and treatment and a backlash, quite rightly, from our constituents.”The debate was secured after a leaked memo revealed Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust was considering ‘rationing’ chemotherapy treatment owing to a lack of qualified nursing staff.On the eve of Saturday’s march, health secretary Jeremy Hunt promised a “well deserved pay rise” of 6.5% for NHS staff.It would be the first above inflation pay rise for health workers in eight years. NHS staff and their supporters marched down Cowley Road into the city today, calling on the government to introduce an ‘Oxford weighting’ for pay.The march, organised by public service union Unison, culminated in a rally on Broad Street, with hundreds assembled to register their support for Oxford NHS staff.Last week, administrators at Oxford Health Trust and Oxford University Hospitals called for the government to review areas where pay weighting is applied after vacancy rates soared.March organiser and a nurse at the Warneford Hospital in Littlemore, Ian McKendrick, said: “There is a national staffing crisis but it’s particularly sharp in Oxford.“In other parts of the country it is older people leaving the NHS but here it is young workers leaving, which means we are struggling now and won’t have a workforce in the future.”He added that the issue is the high cost of living in Oxford, noting that staff in London get “an extra £6,500” to reflect their situation.Kathy Pitson, a support secretary at the John Radcliffe’s cardiology department for the past 19 years, said the Oxford weighting was urgently needed.“We are having a real problem retaining staff because of the cost of living in Oxford.“I couldn’t even tell you how many vacancies we have in the department.“Young doctors and nurses train here for maybe a year or two but then they get confident in themselves and realise the money is better elsewhere.“We are losing good people because the money isn’t there to keep them and it’s having an impact on everyone else at the hospital.”last_img read more
