More mass swabbing in the pipeline, says minister

More targetted mass swabbing as part of surveillance testing is being planned, said Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar.

“However, the Ministry of Health (MoH) will not be limiting it to once or twice a week. If the Disease Control Division at the Public Health Services finds a site believed to be a hotspot, then the relevant agencies will issue a notice,” he said during the press conference yesterday.

The minister also did not rule out the possibility of conducting mass swabbing at residential areas.
