MoH introduces public health measures

With the COVID-19 epidemic spreading around the world, the Ministry of Health (MoH) has introduced a public health measure known as self-isolation for travellers returning from high-risk countries or areas, known as Category A countries (including mainland China, Iran, Italy and South Korea) or areas to prevent and control the disease in Brunei Darussalam. Self-isolation is about protecting others and slowing down the spread of COVID-19. It is very important that anyone who has the virus, or might have been exposed to it, limits the number of people they come into contact with for 14 days. This is the most effective way of preventing the coronavirus from spreading, the ministry stated in a release yesterday. More details in Weekend’s Borneo Bulletin
