Prisoners on the mend

TWO inmates from Ratanakkiri provincial prison, who were hospitalised earlier this week are on the mend, health officials said yesterday. “They are recovering from the disease, but the doctors won’t yet allow them to leave the hospital, in order to make further diagnoses,” said Hing Sokhunthea, chief of Ratanakkiri provincial hospital. The hospitalisation of the pair, which followed the death of an inmate from a respiratory ailment last week, prompted concerns about an outbreak of infectious disease at the prison. Hing Sokhunthea said the two prisoners were likely suffering from an non-infectious stomach complaint.
