There has been a further increase of 6 local transmission cases. As part of tracking and tracing, the Department of Health has collated background information on how these patients were infected.

“We will provide information to the public, so as to give a sense of how these local transmissions occur. We will however not disclose full details as this information is subject to patient confidentiality which we are bound by,” the Department said in a statement.

The impact of COVID-19 on the travel industry is unprecedented and unpredictable. The nature of the content that is being shared on the ASATA coronavirus microsite is therefore constantly changing. Please check the date of the post to ascertain its recency.
