    Joaquin Phoenix who is known for the portrayal of Joker in the 2019 film of the same name has urged the Governor of New York to release the prisoners in the midst of the on-going coronavirus crisis. The Hollywood actor shared a video requesting the government via the Aging People In Prison Campaign’s Twitter handle.

    The 45-year old actor requested the government to take the action immediately. The tweet read, “A message from Oscar award-winning actor Joaquin Phoenix. I’m calling on @NYGovCuomo to take action in New York by granting clemency to New Yorkers in prison. The lives of so many people depend on his action. No one deserves to die in prison from COVID-19.”

    Putting forth his reason for such a request he said that it is difficult to maintain hygiene and social distancing when it comes to prisons. He then added that the people in prison can easily contract the virus and spread it further, including to the ones who are working at the jail facility.

    “The spread of coronavirus in prisons threatens the health and safety of all of us. When you’re incarcerated there’s no such thing as social distancing and ensuring good hygiene is not an option. Leaders must do everything possible to prevent incarcerated people and those who work in prisons from becoming ill and spreading the virus,” he said in the video he shared on Aging People In Prison Campaign’s Twitter handle.

    According to the latest report, nearly 600,000 cases of the coronavirus have been reported positive in the United States and out of them 25,000 people have lost their lives.

    Talking about the worldwide numbers, about 2,152,000 people globally have contracted the novel coronavirus and around 145,000 have died.
