After discovery of an Immigration depot cluster of Covid-19 infections, migrant rights group Tenaganita pointed out today that it had repeatedly raised concerns over a potential outbreak among detainees at the facilities.

Tenaganita executive director Glorene A Das in a statement said this was as the confined quarters and constant cycle of people entering and leaving a centre would create a perfect hotbed for the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
