Two inmates in the N8 prison quarantine area have been tested positive for the novel coronavirus, the Special Penitentiary Service reports.
The authority says that the newly-detained ones were in the quarantine area.
It reports that all the new detainees are subject to a 12-day quarantine and PCR testing afterward.
''The two people have been tested positive for the novel coronavirus due to the protocol-defined testing. The emergency brigade immediately transported them to the so-called COVID-clinic. They will be monitored via electronic bracelets,'' the penitentiary body reports.
The infected two detainees' health condition is stable.
