COVID-19 is distributed in immigration detention centers

More than 900 employees of the center and more than 3 thousand immigrants were infected with the coronavirus.

More than 930 employees of private contractors working in American immigration detention centers have contracted the coronavirus, executives of these companies told Congress.

The heads of four companies that hold immigrants under a contract with the immigration and customs control service reported the infection of their employees, answering questions from lawmakers.

The Agency itself reported 45 cases of COVID-19 among the staff of immigration detention centers.

Tests of more than 3 thousand immigrants under the supervision of the service gave a positive result, although some of them have already recovered or were released.
