Dept to follow report of infected prisoner


The Department of Corrections has not received a report on the prisoner said to have contracted Covid-19 , despite the case being raised by the government’s Covid-19 news centre, said director general Narat Sawettanan.

“I will check but I have not been told where he is being held, Narat said on Wednesday (March 25).
Meanwhile, the Department of Disease Control’s deputy director general Asadang Ruayajin said personal information of the infected prisoner had not been checked.
The Department of Disease Control and Department of Corrections , he said, are collaborating to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in prisons.
“Currently, visits are not allowed, and new prisoners are screened” he said. “Moreover, those suspected of being infected are moved to secluded areas as a preventive measure," he said.
