DENVER (AP) — An inmate at a prison in southern Colorado has died while being treated at a hospital after showing symptoms of the coronavirus. The state corrections department said Thursday that the 58-year-old man had been a prisoner at the Fremont Correctional Facility near Canon City. He died Tuesday at Littleton Adventist Hospital after being transferred from a Canon City area hospital. He is the fourth Colorado inmate to die since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The other inmates were held at the Sterling Correctional Facility and died earlier in the outbreak. The department says it can't release the man's name because of medical privacy laws.
