Our report shows that over half a million cases of COVID-19 in the summer of 2020 - or roughly 13% of all cases - were attributable to mass incarceration. With Gregory Hooks of McMaster University, we examine national data to determine how COVID-19 infections spread beyond prisons and jails and into the communities surrounding them, resulting in faster case growth in counties and economic areas with more people incarcerated. (Report includes national-, state-, and county-level data.)
