"Out of the total number of close contacts, 16 cases were found positive for COVID-19, 19 were negative and 180 are still awaiting test results," he added.

"All parties are urged not to spread any information that may cause anxiety among the public," he said.

Meanwhile, Dr Noor Hisham said the ministry in collaboration with the private sector would be offering a COVID-19 detection service to members of the public who wish to be tested, with the charges to be imposed by the private sector.

An official announcement on this would be made soon, he added.
