Covid spreading in Sheiban prison of Ahwaz
August 25, 2021
According to reliable sources, the infection of many prisoners in the Sheiban prison in Ahwaz with Coronavirus, has raised concerns about the widespread spread of this deadly virus among the prisoners.
Sources revealed that a high number of prisoners have been denied medical treatment, despite their deteriorating condition and symptoms such as loss of taste and smell. In addition, they have been deliberately kept together in one place, and have been prevented from taking PCR tests.
It is noteworthy that the number of detainees have rapidly increased, as a result of the water crisis protests which had occurred in different cities of Ahwaz.
Accordingly, the current deteriorating situation in Iran due to the rapid spread of Coronavirus, has caused the human rights organizations to be highly concerned.
