Some BND480 million has been spent on tackling COVID-19 cases in the Sultanate. However, this does not include provisions for student allowances and public food rations. Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah said this at the press conference yesterday, adding that “it has been a huge expenditure. We haven’t started financial year 2022-2023, and we have already committed BND260 million”. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin.
