The prisons in the country and more particularly, Assam, are in an especially vulnerable position in the fight against COVID 19. It is true that Assam’s correctional homes or prisons are better placed nationally with respect to several parameters, such as the perennial problem of overcrowding that afflicts most Indian correctional homes . But with a dilapidated health infrastructure and heavy shortage of medical personnel, correctional homes in Assam are potentially among the most vulnerable institutions when it comes to health crises.
