Meanwhile, Baine said that the shortlist for the warders and wardresses jobs is at the end and soon coming out.

He also revealed that 826 cases of Covid-19 have so far been registered in prisons.
“826 cases have been registered, 587 recovered, 239 are still in treatment, none of them is asymptomatic and we expect 100% recovery.” Baine said
Baine cited Kawuga and Kasangati referral centers are now not operational because of the congestion.
