This is the December 2, 2020 hearing on "Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and the U.S. Marshals Service," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security of the Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of Karen Bass: "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] is a worldwide pandemic that is escalating in the United States, and of course this includes our prisons and jails, which have become hotbeds for the virus. As of this past weekend, the BOP [Federal Bureau of Prisons] reported that over 23,000 prisoners have tested positive for the virus. That is out of 125,000 inmates in BOP. By our count, at least 161 people have died from COVID while in custody. Many of these infections and these deaths might have been preventable."
