The Ministry of Interior’s Reformation and Rehabilitation Directorate denied yesterday reports claiming that there were confirmed positive cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) among inmates. The directorate said in a tweet that it is committed to the implementation of precautionary measures against COVID-19 as the protection of the health and safety of inmates is a top priority.

Isolation procedures for some inmates were implemented for the safety of inmates, it added. “Reports on positive coronavirus cases are false,” said a tweet. “Out of transparency, the directorate will announce confirmed positive cases if any. “Kindly ignore malicious rumours and seek information from official sources.”
