Female Police Officer Tested Positive For Coronavirus
Ministry of Interior (MoI) announced on Sunday that a female police officer tested positive for the coronavirus. The officer was rushed to the hospital and her family and colleagues had to undergo medical tests to verify their health conditions, according to a statement by the Ministry’s public relations and security media department.
The test results of the females in uniform has yet to come out, the statement noted. It affirmed that all women prisoners have been kept in solitary quarantine since their arrival at the jail pending the completion of routine health procedures, including a comprehensive medical checkup, as per the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.
The statement followed a tweet, which went viral on social media, that a female police officer at a woman prison contracted the virus along with her family and colleagues as well as the inmates of the prison. The tweet alleged that a number of inmates at a men’s prison were also infected and two of them died of the virus, a claim that was refuted by the Ministry of Interior.
