Pauline McNeil, permanent secretary to Ministry of Health, confirmed on Sunday’s radio talkback show that at the moment there are only four ex-positive cases they still have to follow up with.
“Out of all the ex-positive cases that have been released back to the community only four ex-positive cases that we still have to follow-up for a complete swift detection for any reactivation.
“So, we still focus on that one to conclude all the ex-positive follow-ups,” said McNeil.

They will undergo 21 days of quarantine as well as four COVID-19 test and following four negative tests before they will be released back to communities.
