Written by on February 19, 2021

Prison Services say they have recorded an upsurge on COVID19 infection following the festive holidays.

Botswana Prison Services Senior Superintendent Maikutlo Pitlagano this morning said at least 500 cases were recorded in their facilities.

She further said the department has set up two quarantine centers in the north and south, to keep people who have just been sentenced to prison.

Pitlagano further said two people, who were employed by the prisons service, have succumbed to COVID19.
