Abstract

This paper estimates a standardised mortality ratio (SMR) for death due to COVID-19 among people in prisons in England and Wales between 1 March 2020 and 26 February 2021. Over this period, prisons in England and Wales reported 121 deaths related to COVID-19. The SMR is 3.33 (95% C.I. 2.77–3.98), meaning there were 3.33 times more deaths among people in prisons than expected given the age and sex of the population.
