    The virus is now roaming free islandwide. We bring from overseas to the beat of drums. So this will make no difference.

    A prison is not a suitable place for drug addicts.

    With past experience the officials in charge of this patients should have arranged more security and taken precautions. No point of bolting the stable after the escape.

    This government lost control of the Prisons and now have lost control of the small treatment centres. Where is our caretaker General Shavindra

    Possibly the prisoners were allowed to escape so the Govt. has a scapegoat for the next wave of infections.... who knows with the many games and coverups happening.. :(
