Those unable to download the BruHealth app on their mobile phones should log onto www.healthinfo.gov.bn to conduct their own self-assessment, where a specific QR code will be produced for them.

“They will just need to print out the QR code and produce it before entering premises. The premises will then scan the QR code for them,” said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar yesterday, on the question of those who are unable to download the BruHealth app.

“If there is any outbreak or transmission of COVID-19, it will be easy for the premises to trace their whereabouts,” he added.

“Therefore, at this stage, we encourage members of the public to acquire the BruHealth app, as well as a QR code to scan. However, once most of our population have registered for this app, maybe it will be a must for everyone.

“It will take a while for everyone to adapt to the situation, but we hope that in the near future, many more people, premises and companies will have registered for the
BruHealth app.

“We are hoping for more to register, as it boosts the Ministry of Health (MoH)’s confidence in lifting more restrictions. Hence, we need cooperation from everyone.”

To date, 275,743 individuals have signed up for the BruHealth app, while 5,661 business and premises also have registered as users.
