Carolina Public Press: Outbreak rages at NC women’s prison ahead of new court hearing

Carolina Public Press: Outbreak rages at NC women’s prison ahead of new court hearing. “The women’s prison in Raleigh has had the most consistent and widespread outbreak of the new coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, of any prison in the state. Even without a pandemic raging inside its walls, women who have been in the prison describe poor conditions. The N.C. Correctional Institution for Women does not have air conditioning. Fans and coolers with ice are put out, but prison staffers take them away to punish inmates, according to Anna Crim, who was released from NCCIW on July 17 and is now on post-release supervision.”
