Two guards and two prisoners were injured as a result of a riot that broke out in a prison in the US state of Georgia, Newsweek reported.
The Georgia Department of Corrections reported that the situation was only brought under control today.
Corey Jackson, a spokesperson for the Human and Civil Rights Coalition of Georgia said the prison had been quarantined following the death of a prisoner two weeks ago. An investigation is underway.
The prisoner died as a result of a collision with another prisoner.
The tension in the prison was also caused by the fact that inmates received almost no medical care amid COVID-19.
