Haiti - COVID-19 : The virus enters the national penitentiary at least 10 confirmed cases
Inspector General Charles Nazaire Noël, of the Directorate of Penitentiary Administration (DAP) less than 10 days after denying rumors suggesting the existence of confirmed cases of Covid-19 at the national penitentiary https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30766-haiti-news-zapping.html , while about fifty prisoners suffered from fever, confirmed on Thursday May 21 that the Covid-19 was now between the walls of the national penitentiary, despite all the efforts deployed so that it doesn't happen.

It should be noted that out of a sample of 12 prisoners from the group suffering from fever, 10 were tested positive, results which had been known since May 15 but which were not released until Thursday, May 21.

Following these results, Charles Nazaire Noël said he had asked the Ministry of Public Health to screen 3,555 prisoners from the National Penitentiary to prevent the spread of the disease, stressing that all prison staff will also be tested. The Ministry says it has no problem conducting this massive screening operation, which will be carried out in the coming days by group of 50 prisoners.
