“Ito po ay walled facility, 12 meters high po ang perimeter wall and we have five buildings inside. Hindi rin basta-basta makapag-access ka do’n sa ibang building from another building kasi may mga barriers siya at naka-lock po ‘yun,” he added.

Chaclag also said they have distributed alcohol, soap, and disinfectants to inmates.
