This article by Blair, Parnia and Siddiqi examines data on COVID-19 testing, disease prevalence, recovery, and mortality within federal prisons in Canada.

In it, the authors compare results from federal prisons to those of the general population to understand the severity of the pandemic in carceral facilities. The analysis describes the need for increased testing, infection control practices, surveillance and possible release to keep prisoners safe from frequent viral outbreaks.
