Contagious Outbreak Untreated

A rash of grotesque and dangerous staph infections among inmates gets no action from jail officials

Miami-Dade corrections officials' failure to respond in an aggressive and coordinated manner to the outbreak means that it's highly likely the infections are not under control. For instance, an infected Mancas was left to mix with the general population for months before he was isolated. He also went to court during his infected stage. He could have infected more than 100 other people.

"I'm mad as hell," the anonymous officer says. "The clinic has kept this quiet, it's a coverup. And it's putting me in danger."
