She noted that the Ministry is still adopting strict monitoring measures at border crossing points and airports, taking the temperature of arrivals and conducting tests for suspected cases, particularly for people coming from China and East Asia, who fill out a form containing their details. “Moreover, the Ministry follows up on their health status for 14 days, which is the incubation period for the virus”.
