“The majority of the country’s new COVID-19 cases recently were contributed by imported cases and local transmission among foreign nationals involving foreign workers and several clusters identified in immigration detention facilities,’’ Noor Hisham said.

“The authorities are working to control further transmission among foreign workers while providing those tested positive with best treatment,’’ he added.

Another 51 recoveries recorded recently, bringing the total cured and discharged to 6,404.

Of the remaining 1,338 cases, eight are currently being held in intensive care and two of those are in need of assisted breathing.
