When I checked the news today I saw these distressing pictures. I was bothered, to make sure I was not being deceived by some sleight individuals who use photoshopped images to hoax people into viewing their contents I searched purposely for “El Salvador’s jails”, and then the pictures were everywhere. They made me very uncomfortable, something in me just feels saddened by these pictures.
The above pictures show El Salvador’s jails: Where social distancing is impossible amidst the Coronavirus pandemic.
El Salvador imposed prisons lockdown after they had 22 murder cases in one day. The Salvadoran president, Nayib Bukele, recently instituted a 24-hour lockdown of prisons containing gang members, and said their leaders would be sent into solitary confinement after a sudden spike in homicide occurred.
El Salvador, is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America.
I guess seeing these human beings packed like sardines is quite disturbing.
