For the past year, a team of New York Times journalists has tracked every known case of the coronavirus in U.S. prisons, jails, ICE detention centers and more.

**One in 3 inmates in state prisons were infected with the coronavirus. At least 2,700 died in state custody.** https://t.co/M7jy2v7h5C

Local government bore the brunt of the cascade of crises (housing/policing/fiscal) that accompanied the pandemic. I interviewed a few exiting mayors about what that was like. Like running up the beach to higher ground with a tsunami behind us, one said. https://t.co/vHzAKiOran

For years, the Boston Police kept a secret: the union president was an alleged child molester https://t.co/9cRp7evq7T

Quite a story from @GlobeAndrewRyan, about a patrolman who was first accused of sexually assaulting a child in 1995, was found to have broken the law in an internal investigation ... and somehow went on to become the president of the Boston Police Union https://t.co/ndzzrubSFn

A side note, but this scientist's career reminds me so powerfully of Shyamala Gopalan, Kamala Harris's mother and her most powerful influence. Breathtaking persistence, over decades, with few rewards, all for the science. https://t.co/qehEmxi1n8

Dr. Kariko lives for “the bench” — the spot in the lab where she works. She cares little for fame. “The bench is there, the science is good,” she shrugged. “Who cares?” Fabulous @ginakolata profile of 66yo researcher whose work is the basis for vaccines. https://t.co/qehEmxi1n8

With John's departure, we are looking for a national correspondent to cover race in America. It's hard to think of a more fascinating and important job in our newsroom. More details here: https://t.co/GiNVXzlNhT

Fascinating research from @CPOST_UChicago on Jan. 6 rioters: Counties with the most significant declines in the non-Hispanic White population are the most likely to produce insurrectionists who now face charges. https://t.co/JC7T0iq5u7

Kim Janey is officially in the race for mayor of Boston, increasing the field of candidates to six. Her launch video foregrounds the city's racial wealth gap and places her in line with @DARollins, @RepPressley, @VP Kamala Harris & @staceyabrams. https://t.co/5QEw0yYm2E

Oh how I love Roadtrip Auntie, proto-feminist housewife on the lam, eating in parking lots and sleeping in a tent on the roof of her car, @vwang3, long may she she run. https://t.co/nXuXaEErGs

Super @GlobeSpotlight report on how many hospital CEOs in Boston moonlight as directors of publicly traded companies, raising conflict of interest alarms. "We’ve gotten into a situation where this is part of the package of being a CEO," one doctor said. https://t.co/xXWQrLXXjW

"SNL" host Daniel Kaluuya compares racism in Boston to racism in South Africa https://t.co/MCvg0V9rrt

“Let me put it this way. British racism is so bad white people left. They wanted to be free — free to create their own kind of racism. That’s why they invented Australia, South Africa, and Boston.” https://t.co/RQIh89DEMC

Let's not forget that when then-VP Biden tried to call then-Mayor-Elect Marty Walsh in 2013 to congratulate him, he called an entirely different Boston-based Marty Walsh than these Marties Walsh

There are so many Marty Walshes https://t.co/CtWUx2epFx

I've been evangelizing for the past 2 years about this stunning podcast WEST CORK, which has unfortunately been exclusive to Audible and thus inaccessible to a lot of listeners. But it just went up -for a limited time- on iTunes. Get on it! You'll thank me https://t.co/DU9uhJpmqE

🚨 The Times has reviewed receipts from Cash App and Apple Pay that show payments from Gaetz and Greenberg to one of the women, and a payment from Greenberg to a second woman. The women told their friends that the payments were for sex with the two men https://t.co/TCS3mC6tkk

Boston's poet laureate @PorshaOlayiwola is something to behold, reading her new poem "Children's March" at Mayor Janey's Covid briefing. Look her up, you'll thank me.
