Our spies added that police officers and their families are in total panic as most of their colleagues have been interacting with the suspects adding that the number of suspects testing positive for Covid 19 will increase because they were many in the cells.

Our spies added that the remaining suspects in the cells have been violent and demanded to be tested and be taken to quarantine centers but unfortunately we as “police officers” don’t have testing equipment and we are still exposing ourselves to them through interactions getting their statements and other things.
