Lawyers confirm Mumia Abu-Jamal has COVID-19

Philadelphia, March 4 (RHC)-- Lawyers for renowned political prisoner and journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal confirmed Wednesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

Professor Johanna Fernández, making the announcement at a rally calling for his release, said: “I just got a call from Bob Boyle, one of Mumia’s — oh my god — one of Mumia’s attorneys.  Mumia has COVID.  He’s in the infirmary.  Their attorneys called our attorneys.  He had gotten a rapid test, and they conducted another test, and it came out positive.  So Mumia Abu-Jamal has COVID-19.”

Sixty-six-year-old political prisoner Abu-Jamal suffers from several preexisting conditions, for which advocates say he has not received proper care.
