An inmate in prison for a drug conviction out of Morgan County had coronavirus at the time of his death.
The Alabama Department of Corrections says George Irvin, 58, died on Feb. 5. He was serving a 27-year sentence for manufacturing of a controlled substance at Hamilton Aged and Infirmed.
He had been on hospice care for ongoing treatment of his end-stage, preexisting medical conditions since Sept. 10, 2020.
The state says a full autopsy report concluded that Irvin was positive for coronavirus when he died.
