More than 1,000 prisoners in the Zone 6 maximum security sector of the prison in Thailand’s southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat have been infected with COVID-19, 396 of whom have developed symptoms.

 

Prison officials told Thai PBS that they have no idea how the infections started, but said that only officials are allowed into Zone 6, where prisoners serving a minimum of 30 years and those on death row are housed.

 

To prevent further spread among prisoners, the occupational training building is being used to quarantine and treat symptomatic inmates with the Favipiravir anti-viral drug and Fah Talai Jone Thai traditional herbal medicine, while the low-risk prisoners are being separately kept.

No idea yet the answer lays within the post.. an official is infected.. or more than one.

So the story that all Prisoners across the Country had been Vaccinated was not exactly correct then.
