MDOC Prisoner Who Died at DRMC Was COVID-19 Positive

GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Mississippi Department of Corrections Prisoner who died while being treated at DRMC in Greenville was positive for the COVID-19 virus. The as-yet-unidentified inmate becomes the first in the state prison system to test positive for the coronavirus. Last week, MDOC announced three employees tested positive for COVID-19. A statement said the man had been sick for weeks and had underlying health problems. The state says they are taking immediate steps to further isolate any prisoners he may have had contact with him at Parchman.
