Default Rikers Island worker blows whistle

As New York City begins to gradually reopen after its coronavirus lockdown, the threat of COVID-19 infection inside Rikers Island rages on. As of July 24, 288 people in custody of the NYC Department of Correction — or 7.3% of the population — were confirmed to be COVID-19 positive.

Because of a lack of widespread testing, that number is almost certainly an undercount. Even so, it indicates a rate of infection that is almost three times higher than the rate for New York City as a whole. The city has, for months, refused to publicly disclose the total number of people incarcerated at the Rikers jail complex who have contracted COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. Until recently, the city would only provide a current, rather than a cumulative, count — and the numbers released represent all individuals detained by the Correction Department, not just at Rikers, its biggest facility.

I thought about why that frisbee was getting bigger and bigger.........
then it hit me.
