A report by the American media website, The Intercept, revealed that New York City authorities pay $ 6 an hour to Raiser Island prison residents to participate in the excavation of mass graves on the city's Hart Island.

The website's report, released today, indicated that the city authorities provide prisoners with personal protective equipment and give them six dollars an hour for their work, noting that this amount is a fortune for prisoners sentenced according to prison standards, with the exception of prisoners who have not been subjected to criminal provisions from the offer.

A source familiar with the website denied that the mass grave digging had anything to do with the outbreak of the Corona virus pandemic in New York, which recorded the largest outcome of injuries and deaths in the United States, but the site said that the preventive measures accompanying drilling operations, including providing prisoners with medical protection equipment, leave no doubt that the matter is linked to an outbreak Sk.

The report comes at a time when the United States topped the list of countries most affected by the Corona pandemic, while recording 38,000 cases, of whom more than 914 cases died, and New York occupied the top of this statistic and considered it the largest focus of the spread of the virus in the United States.
