#TTFCovid19: A riot occurred on Sunday in a prison in northeastern Thailand as inmates tensed up for the fear of Covid-19 infection and set the prison on fire with four of them having escaped, Xinhua news agency reported police as saying.

About 100 inmates staged the riot in the prison and set it ablaze in downtown area of Buriram province, about 390 kilometres northeast of Bangkok, confirmed deputy National Police spokesman Pol. Col. Krissana Pattanacharoen.

Those inmates apparently revolted for fear of COVID-19 infection in the crowded prison, which currently is home to about 2,100 inmates, according to Pol. Col. Krissana.

They set ablaze the prison’s sleeping quarters, canteen and furniture workshop, prompting firefighters to scramble to the scene and put it out.
