De-escalation level still in place despite new COVID-19 case

With one new imported case from Yemen announced during a press conference at the Ministry of Health (MoH) yesterday, Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar said as the patient is undergoing isolation at the hospital in Tutong, the de-escalation plan is still the same as what it is currently.

The minister said further de-escalation will be considered later as the situation needs to be examined as there are 13 contact cases and about 90 others still needing swab tests.
