No Prisoner Showing Symptoms Of COVID-19 – Officials


Prison Officials are denying that a prisoner has been placed in isolation for symptoms of the coronavirus.

Head of the prison Colonel Eugene Phillip said “I want to make to absolutely clear, as of today the 14th of April we have no inmate at Her Majesty’s Prison showing any signs of the COVID-19.”

The erroneous publication was made by NewsCo otherwise known as Observer Media yesterday.

But the head of the prison says “our nurses were in this morning every morning and they are the ones who would check our inmates signature. No one is complaining of any illness or any thing. This morning they checked and they reported that no one have a temperature increase or anything of that sort.”

Phillip is also denying that an inmate is at the hospital testing for COVID-19 telling local television “that is not so.”

Meantime, Phillip said a nurse who visited the facility sometime ago has tested positive for COVID-19.

  1. From what I have seen on social media, some people who have COVID 19 never shown any of the regular symptoms. I know of a person who had constant diarrhea and when check it out they were diagnosed with COVID 19…my cousin wife in America.

  2. There goes OBSERVER / NEWSCO with FAKE NEWS. This must stop . I hope someday OBSERVER / NEWSCO and Executives will be SUED . They are full of FAKE NEWS.

  3. Col Eugene Philip am I to accept that out of nearly 400 prisoners NONE has flu like symptoms?

    Col Eugene Philip do not make lying a habit it does not suit you.

    Now that nasty, foul smelling, poorly ventilated, damp, dingy, suffocating place has no one with flu like symptoms? Really? Really?

    Because you said it is so certainly does not mean it is so. Yeaah?

    It may be in order to say their are no prison in isolation for COVID19, that fine but to say out of nearly 400 prisoners that none have flu like symptoms is just really hard to swallow.

    We live in this country and knows how many people suffer sinus issues…..hint hint sinus issues are flu like Sir.
