Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar advised those who suspect of having any contact with a person with COVID-19 to seek treatment at Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital or a government health clinic, including the Berakas Health Centre and Pengkalan Batu Health Centre which are in addition to the existing flu clinic.

The minister said this in response to a question if it was possible to seek treatment at a private clinic for COVID-19, instead of RIPAS Hospital or a government health clinic.

He said government health clinics have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). while the Jerudong Park Medical Centre has its own procedures in conducting tests and treatment.
