On another note, Uggah who is Deputy Chief Minister said the State Health Department has issued a compound to a woman in Miri for declaring false information in her health declaration form upon her return to Sarawak recently.
He gathered that the woman was found to be positive Covid-19 upon her return from Tunisia recently.
Thus, Uggah who is Second Finance Minister advised the public to be truthful in disclosing their health information to the authorities because it is important for the people to cooperate with the state government in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic in Sarawak. —DayakDaily
