A prisoner on San Quentin's death row died Sunday at an outside hospital, apparently from complications related to the COVID-19 coronavirus, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said Sunday.
Orlando G. Romero, 48, was sentenced to death in Riverside County on Aug. 28, 1996, for first-degree murder and second-degree robbery while armed with a firearm. .... He was admitted onto death row on Sept. 4, 1996
Romero is the 11th condemned prisoner at San Quentin to die since late June, the Department of Corrections said. He was the 20th San Quentin prisoner overall to die from complications of COVID-19, according to the Marin County Health and Human Services.

well then by all means, let’s empty San Quentin, let everyone back out into the streets- no questions asked- because we wouldn’t want them to be unsafe /s
IF masks are so wonderful- and our governors feel they can make masks a mandatory fashion accessory, why don’t they just give every inmate a mask?
We have been caring for this slimeball for 24 years already BYE, he should have been put to death already!! SEE YA SCUM BAG!! Maybe Scott Peterson will be among the dead soon!!
He was admitted onto death row on Sept. 4, 1996
The person he murdered hasn’t had 24 years reprieve!
You know the officials want to release them, but the optics would be bad.
“Orlando G. Romero, 48, was sentenced to death in Riverside County on Aug. 28, 1996.”
Was he 48 in 1996, or today? It makes a difference.
Now we know how the virus spreads in prisons...but why have the homeless seemed to be able to evade this virus?
They are outside
An internet search has him at 48 years old the day he died.
Death Row prisoners get almost no sunshine. They would be vitamin D deficient, which is one of the prime conditions for death from this virus.
But at least he can vote Democrat...
I hear hospitals get more money and patients if they are diagnosed with covid, and so everyone has or dies of covid now
COVID-19...doing the work America’s Judicial System should already have done.
Gee....what a shame.....
Or was it that the state actually carried out the execution and the coroner labeled it a COVID-19 death?
How much did the taxpayers save thanks to this joyous event?
