Foota Hype's sister has pleaded for his release amid health concerns during the COVID 19 crisis. Kerry-Ann Townsend is calling on the public to demand the release of her brother, Oneil \u2018Foota Hype\u2019 Thomas. According to Kerry-Ann, he is a substantial risk due to his diabetic condition.In a plea to Florida governor Ron DeSantis, Townsend demanded the release of all detainees with serious medical conditions. She also called for the temporary release of those with delayed hearings, and are low risk.\u201cI don\u2019t want this to be about if you like Foota Hype, or you don\u2019t. Just think of him as one of your own. He\u2019s Jamaica\u2019s child. He\u2019s somebody\u2019s father. He didn\u2019t commit a crime. At the same time, with what\u2019s going on with him because of his health, it\u2019s really scary for us,\u201d she told The STAR.\u201cWhat I need help with from our Jamaican people, I need the assistance with people calling the governor in Florida, so we can make some noise about releasing not just him. There are other people in these facilities too in there, and they just don\u2019t have a voice and don\u2019t know the right people to reach out to. Don\u2019t make this about if you like Foota Hype or you don\u2019t,\u201d she continued.In recent months Foota's health has become a growing concern after the selector revealed his struggles.\u201cMy problem is dying of hunger. My diet is different and they cannot maintain feeding me. If I don\u2019t eat, my sugar drops too low, and I am close to the state of a coma. Then when I do eat what they have here, it takes my sugar up through the roof. They only have snacks and stuff like that. I don\u2019t eat rice, meat. I don\u2019t drink coffee. All of that is what they have,\u201d he said.According to the disc jock, he is also at high risk of contracting COVID 19 in detention.\u201cIn this pandemic, to be kept in a facility that houses thousands of prisoners, and workers who go home and come back every day \u2026 I\u2019m liable to catch this pandemic disease more than anybody else,\u201d he added.According to Foota's sister, she is terrified as most of these facilities are not taking precautionary measures.\u201cThey\u2019re still arresting people, bringing them in. People can be asymptomatic and pass it on to other inmates or detainees. Nobody knows what\u2019s going on and there\u2019s no form of precautions being taken. He was at a place where there was no water for hours, a week or two ago,\u201d she said.\u201cIt\u2019s more about is my brother going to get out of this alive? That\u2019s what the scary thing is for me and all of his family, friends, and followers,\u201d she said.
