The coronavirus pandemic has established social distance, but many are concerned about the adoption of these measures in prisons. Joaquin Phoenix has expressed his concern about this situation and has asked for the release of prisoners, those most vulnerable to the virus, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in New York prisons.

“The spread of the coronavirus in prisons threatens the health and safety of all of us. When you are incarcerated there is no social distance and ensuring good hygiene is not an option. Leaders must do everything possible to prevent incarcerated people and those who work in prisons get sick and spread the virus, “the actor said in a statement as part of the Release Aging People in Prison campaign.

“I ask Governor Andrew Cuomo to take action in New York by granting clemency to New Yorkers in prison. The lives of so many people depend on their actions. No one deserves to die in prison at COVID-19,” added the interpreter.

Melissa DeRosa, the Governor’s secretary, informed TMZ that they have begun a process to release the prisoners “with 90 days or less remaining on their sentence, who are 55 years of age or older, and whose crime was not a serious or sexual crime ”
