"Detainees and places of detention are some of the most vulnerable to the spread of the COVID-19. Many places of detention can be densely populated making the spread of the disease easier.
In South Sudan, the ICRC increased its support to the detaining authorities following the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country in April 2020. The ICRC's aim, together with the authorities, is to put in place preventive measures to stop or limit the spread of COVID-19 in places of detention.
This is why the ICRC donated medical and preventive equipment to the National Prison Services. These include masks, gloves, aprons and non-contact thermometers. The ICRC has also improved the nutrition of the detainees by donating super cereals."
