Tast month witnessed the infection of more than 200 new prisoners with Coronavirus in Raymond Prison and the Negev, as a result of Israel’s disregarding of the lives of the prisoners and not taking measures to prevent or limit the spread of the pandemic among the prisoners and the delay in taking samples from the prisoners.
