3,071 inmates have tested positive, 57 have died.

By Friday, the Michigan Department of Corrections (DOC) says that the Great Lakes state could be the first in the nation to test every single prisoner at its state-owned correctional facilities for COVID-19.

“Right now we’ve tested about 31,000 prisoners — and in Michigan right now, we have about 36,500 [total]. So just about 5,000 or 6,000 more prisoners to go,” said DOC spokesperson Chris Gautz.
