A study found that 96% of prisoners in four states that came down with the Chinese Coronavirus were asymptomatic.
An overwhelmingly majority of inmates from four states’ prison systems that tested positive for COVID-19 have been asymptomatic, according to Reuters.
Between Arkansas, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, 3,277 inmates tested positive for the virus. Of that number, 96 percent of the inmates were asymptomatic, meaning they showed no symptoms associated with the disease.
Asymptomatic patients can transmit COVID-19 unknowingly, putting at-risk populations in danger of contracting a virus that could be fatal. This fact has alarmed health experts since the onset of the pandemic and forced state government officials to instate social distancing measures.
Asymptomatic carriers pose a particular challenge in the country’s state prison system where often, inmates come in close contact with one another.
