ETAH: As many as 36 inmates of the district jail here have tested positive for Covid-19, an official said. Jailor, Kuldeep Singh Bhadauria, said that in view of the rising number of coronavirus cases, the district and jail administration have set up a temporary jail at a school here.


Chief medical superintendent, Ajay Agarwal, said, "As per reports obtained from the Sarojini Naidu Medical College, Agra, 36 inmates of the Etah district jail have been found Covid-19 positive".

Bhadauria said that an administrative officer and deputy jailor have been posted at the temporary jail.


"Instead of sending a person directly to the jail, they are being sent to the temporary jail, where they will be tested for Covid-19. If symptoms are found, then they will be first admitted to L1 hospital, and after they are cured of Covid-19, they will enter the jail," he said.
