At least 40 Covid-19 positive cases were recorded at Bindura prison yesterday.

Insiders told that the outbreak forced the prison and Bindura magistrates court to hold an emergency meeting to deal with the pandemic.

"We recorded 40 cases of Covid19 today at Bindura prison and we had to conduct an emergency meeting with the magistrate courts since they are also at high risk of contracting the deadly disease as we work hand in hand," said the source who declined to be named.

Efforts to get a comment from Zimbabwe Prison and Correctional Services (ZPCS) public relations offices were fruitless as they referred questions from one office to another.
