Two cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed at the Tower Street Adult Correctional Centre in Kingston.

The confirmation came from Minister without portfolio in the Ministry of National Security, Matthew Samuda.

The development means that two prison facilities have now confirmed COVID-19 cases. Earlier this month, five cases of COVID-19 were confirmed at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre, a maximum security facility based on Spanish Town Road in lower St Andrew.

"Those persons (at Horizon)  were held in isolation and treated medically, and have actually now recovered," Samuda said. Watch the video below.
