inmates at Bullingdon jail have coronavirus?

The men are inmates at Bullingdon jail, near Bicester, and are being kept in isolation in their cells, with access also restricted to the wing of the complex where they are being held, Sky News can confirm.

The prison has capacity for 1,114 inmates - including those on remand, those who have been sentenced, and young adults aged 18 to 21 - and remains operational, with Public Health England on site helping to manage the situation.

As the two prisoners were being tested, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced the new coronavirus will be called COVID-19.

WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the first vaccine could be ready in 18 months "so we have to do everything today using available weapons to fight this virus". full report
