One hundred and twenty inmates in Turkey have tested positive for coronavirus.
Minister of Justice in the country, Abdulhamit Gul disclosed this on Tuesday in Ankara, Newzandar News reports.
The minister, however, added that none of the infected inmates in the four prisons was in critical condition.
“All [inmates] are receiving treatment in hospital.
“There is no inmate in an intensive care unit; all are in a good state of health,” he added.
He, however, failed to disclose the locations of the prisons.

The death toll recorded in Turkey as at Monday rose from 95 to 2,900, while confirmed cases stood at 112,000.
