Prison Quacks Busted in Attempt to Kill Mumia Abu-Jamal with a Phony Negative Covid Diagnosis

Wednesday March 3, 2021

Contrary to this prison administration’s lies and the latest example of medical malpractice and neglect, the follow up tests which were demanded and won by this week’s Monday and Tuesday phone campaigns have just confirmed that Mumia indeed does have Covid-19 and he has just been moved to the prison infirmary for more of their inept medical care.

We still demand that Mumia be immediately be sent to a “non-prison” hospital for treatment and then returned home to his family in order to receive competent outside medical care from his own doctors.

Click below to watch the video recording of this morning’s press conference @ the Philly D.A.’s office, where we received this breaking news from one of Mumia's lead legal attorneys.
