A total of 21 prisoners have been infected with the novel corona virus since the start of the pandemic. “16 prisoners have now recovered, two people have been released and three prisoners are currently suffering from Corona,” a spokeswoman said. The number of employees is higher: 34 of them have so far tested positive across Bavaria and all have now survived the infection.
According to the ministry, prisoners who tested positive will be quarantined at the correctional facility. Inmates who have had close contact with people who test positive will be housed separately from others and tested for the coronavirus.
