It had previously avoided an outbreak until several detainees from the California Institution for Men in Chino were transferred there in late May, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).(Wapbaze_Copyright)

Since then, the outbreak has ravaged through the prison's inmates and has hit death row the hardest.(Wapbaze_Copyright)

Over half of the deaths in the prison to this point were inmates on death row, which is the nation's largest.
