BuCor invites Muntinlupa execs to check Site Harry, insists residents near NBP safe

Residents near the New Bilibid Prison have nothing to worry about as regards inmates with COVID-19 at  Site Harry, the isolation facility within the NBP, Bureau of Corrections officials said on Thursday.

According to Raffy Tima's exclusive report on 24 Oras, there are 47 persons deprived of liberty from the Correctional Institute for Women currently isolated inside Site Harry.

"Kaya nga ini-invite ko si Congressman Biazon, si Mayor mismo, ay pumunta dito at i-inspect niya. Para wala na speculation na hindi fit itong Site Harry natin," BuCor Director General Gerald Bantag said.

"Kung may violation kami dito ay handa kaming sumunod. Sabi ko nga, nandyan 'yung partners natin. Bakit nila pinapayagan itong Site Harry na 'yan? Dahil nakita nila, maganda," he added.

The medical field officer in which Site Harry was named after also attested to the facility's efficiency.

"Ang Site Harry ay 'di hamak na mas maluwag kumpara sa pinanggalingan nila sa CIW," ICRC officer Harry Tubangi said.

"At ang Site Harry ay nasa gitna ng medium compound kung saan ito ay napakalayo sa komunidad na malapit dito sa Medium Security Compouund," he added.

Male PDLs who are suspected coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases with pending results are also isolated in a separate area within Site Harry.

As of present, the inmates are in good condition, especially those from the correctional facility. -Joahna Lei Casilao/NB, GMA News
