Six more coronavirus infections at Saint-Gilles prison
Monday, 15 March 2021
Six more coronavirus infections among inmates at the Saint-Gilles prison in Brussels prompted the quarantine of an entire wing.
Wing A was placed under quarantine on Saturday after six of the prisoners there tested positive for Covid-19, just two days after guards held a strike in protest against measures taken previously regarding prisoners who tested positive for the coronavirus.
Thursday’s strike ended when the prison agreed to retest all prisoners in both Wing A and Wing B, whereupon the additional infections were found.
