“All our cases are stable and in the best spirits. We want to emphasise that one of the three new cases was imported while the remaining two are contacts of our earlier cases. Aggressive contact tracing has since begun.
“This incident of another imported case explains why we are now deploying military personnel to man our borders while police and other security agencies maintain their hold internally.”
He further disclosed that, “We are proud to say that our strategy to prevent community dissemination is working so far. We thank all our frontline workers for this great feat.
