Montreal, June 4th, 2020 – As the number of COVID-19 cases spike, an interactive map has been released that lets you visualize which prison / correctional facilities around the world have been affected by the novel coronavirus. Data is gathered by the ICPA (International Corrections & Prisons Association) through its C19 Prisons Taskforce and complemented by information coming from the news media. These two sources are being combined in a data visualization dashboard by Abilis Solutions, through the voluntary work of a dedicated group of people led by Maruthi Govindappa, BI Director. This effort reflects Abilis Solutions’ continued support of the ICPA and engagement with the global corrections community. Concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 in correctional facilities have led government agencies across the world to reevaluate policies related to confinement.
