Close borders to contain COVID-19 spread

With the increase in COVID-19 cases, the government should consider following in the footsteps of Wuhan and Italy by locking down the borders.

Brunei has a relatively small population compared to these areas and controling the closure should be simpler.

However, with a small population and a smaller landsize, infections could also spread faster.

The cost of closing the borders for the time being would be less than having to contain COVID-19 from spreading.
