KUCHING (Dec 26): The Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (JPBN) is conducting contact tracing efforts after recording three latest Covid-19 positive cases including one involving an illegal.
JPBN, in a statement yesterday said, the illegal, from Kalimantan, Indonesia, was detained when he entered Sarawak via a rat trail on the Malaysia-Indonesia border in the Lundu district near here, on Dec 23.
"The man underwent COVID-19 screening on Dec 24 and was tested positive although he did not have any symptom and admitted to the Sarawak General Hospital for further treatment," JPBN said.
