Only 12 COVID-19 cases being treated in Sabah

KOTA KINABALU (BERNAMA) — There are only 12 COVID-19 cases being treated in six specialist hospitals in Sabah as of Sunday, said State Health Director Datuk Dr Christina Rundi.

She said these cases are part of the 346 COVID-19 recorded in Sabah, while 329 cases had recovered and five died.

Dr Christina said although there were no new cases reported in the state for two consecutive days, the State Health Department (JKNS) reminded the public that although the number of COVID-19 cases was dropping, it did not mean that the outbreak had ended.

“The JKNS urges the public to continue practising the new normal, regardless if they are at home, in the shops or anywhere else. With only one case, if we are complacent and are not serious about this, it is not impossible that COVID-19 will spread again,” she said in a statement yesterday.
