Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh): Four barracks of the Jhansi district jail have been converted into a level one COVID hospital after a total of 128 inmates tested Corona positive.

A spokesman of the Director General (Prisons) said "two inmates were symptomatic while 126 were asymptomatic" about the Thursday development.

So far, 748 inmates in the district jail have been tested and of these, 126 have turned out positive.
