According to sources at the prison, inmates were caught using the hydro-alcoholic gels, which were installed to maximise hygiene measures, to get drunk.
The San Esteban de Seroviras prison installed units of this sanitising gel in order to guarantee security measures during the coronavirus pandemic. However, this measure only lasted five days as the female inmates were using this to make cocktails and get drunk.
Although these gels do not possess a very high alcohol content, they have been removed due to their toxicity when ingested.
In fact, the Toxicological Information Service recommends going to the emergency services if this substance is ingested.
Inmates were mixing ice and coca-cola with the hydro-alcoholic gel to create make-shift cocktails in order to get a buzz during their incarceration.
