Latest BOP numbers with still more COVID cases at still more federal facilities

The BOP's COVID-19 Update page has been updated to reveal that, as of April 5, there are 138 federal inmates and 59 federal prison staffers who have tested positive for the coronavirus.  Here is where these latest BOP numbers come from:

(Inmate) 04/05/2020 - USP Atlanta (9); FCI Bennettsville; MDC Brooklyn; FCI Butner Low (7); FMC Butner; FCI Butner Medium I (3); USP Canaan; FMC Carswell; FCI Danbury (21); FCI Elkton (7); FCI Forrest City Low (x); FCI Forrest City Medium (x); USP Lompoc (17); FCI Milan (3); MCC New York (4); FCI Oakdale I (22); FCI Otisville; FCI Yazoo City Medium (5); FCI Yazoo City Low (2); USP Yazoo City (11); RRC Baltimore; RRC Brooklyn, NY (4); RRC Chicago, IL; RRC Dallas, TX; RRC Phoenix, AZ; RRC St Louis, MO; FLM Guam.

(Staff) 04/05/2020 - Atlanta, GA (3); Brooklyn, NY (5); Butner, NC; Waymart (Canaan), PA; Chicago, IL (3); Danbury, CT (7); Lisbon (Elkton), OH; Forrest City, AR Low (2); Forrest City, AR Medium (2); Fort Dix, NJ; Leavenworth, KS; Lompoc, CA (2); Milan, MI; New York, NY (6); Oakdale, LA (4); Otisville, NY (2); Ray Brook, NY (7); Talladega, AL (3); Tucson, AZ; Yazoo, MS Low (2); Yazoo, MS Medium; Central Office, Washington, DC; Grand Prairie Office Complex, Grand Prairie, TX; Southeast Regional Office, Atlanta, GA.

By my count, this list now shows 27 different federal prison facilities with inmates who have tested positive and 24 different communities with federal prison staff who have tested positive.  The numbers of grown steadily over the last two weeks, and I have no reason to believe they will not continue to do so.
